Motorola Edge S could be the first smartphone to feature a new Snapdragon 800 series chipset, according to a tipster. A Motorola executive teased a new Edge S device earlier this week, saying the new flagship will feature a “ Snapdragon 8XX ” chipset. A tipster has now claimed it will be a new chipset, and Motorola Edge S will likely be the first smartphone to have it. On top of that, Motorola teased the upcoming Motorola Edge S through a poster.
According to tipster Digital Chat Station, Qualcomm will launch a “ new flagship 8-series chip, ” and Motorola Edge S will be the smartphone to present it. The tipster has no longer revealed any information about the chipset or the phone.
Motorola teased the upcoming Motorola Edge S via a photo shared on Weibo. The focus of the image is the chipset, indicating that the Motorola smartphone will indeed be backed by a powerful chipset. It is likely that the Lenovo-owned company will soon share more information about the Motorola Edge S.
A report from GSMArena suggests that the chipset in question could be the leaked Snapdragon chip that was codenamed “Shima”. Supposedly, it is based on Samsung’s 5nm process and powered by a Cortex A78 main core clocked at 2.70 GHz.
Motorola Edge S may be the device with the code name “Nio”. Details of this smartphone were leaked several times late last year. Nio is said to come with up to 12GB of RAM and offer dual selfie cameras. The smartphone’s default maximum refresh rate could be 105Hz. An image of Nio has also been leaked by a tipster, where she is visible with thick bezels around and a thick chin. Once more details about Motorola Edge S emerge, we’ll know if this is indeed the Nio codename phone; at the moment, it is only speculation.
