Today, Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 870 5G SOC, which is an upgrade to the last year’s Snapdragon 865+. Qualcomm also shared the names of smartphone makers that will be launching phones with this SOC and the names include Xiaomi, Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo, iQOO, etc. It looks like Motorola will be the first to launch a phone powered by this SOC because the latest teaser posted by the brand on its Weibo page reveals the same.
It reveals that the Edge S is launching on the 26th of January and it will feature the Snapdragon 870 SOC. The caption says that it is going to be World’s first Snapdragon 870-powered device. As the name shows, it is the third device under the Motorola Edge series that already includes Edge and Edge+ smartphones which launched last year. With the Motorola Edge S, we are expecting the same Curved display with a hole-punch cutout.
There is no information at the moment about this phone but as always, we will get to know some details soon as the launch is still a week away.
