The Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Debuts with the Motorola Edge S

Just a few days after Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 870 (or rather the Snapdragon 865++), Motorola becomes the first brand to debut the new processor with the Edge S in China. Unlike the Edge and Edge+ that was announced last year, the Edge S settles for a flat 6.7-inch IPS display with 90hz refresh rate and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Rounding up its specs include 6GB/8GB LPDDR5 RAM, 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1 storage, and 5G (via a separate modem). Its rear camera setup consists of a 64-megapixel f/1.7 main camera with support for 6K video recording, 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with PDAF, 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a TOF sensor. For the selfie snappers, you get a 16-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera for those socially-distanced selfies.

Powering it is a 5000mAh battery that charges through a rather slow 20w USB-C charging–though you get the charger in the box. Other features include a headphone jack and IP52 rating.

The Edge S is priced at CNY 1999(~Php 14,.9k) for the 6GB/128GB model, CNY 2399(~Php 17.9k) for the 8Gb/128GB model, and CNY 2799(~Php 20.9k) for the 8GB/256GB model.
