Motorola Reportedly Planning to Launch Two New Flagships with Upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen1 and Snapdragon 888+

Motorola may launch other flagship phones alongside the Edge 30 Ultra.


Motorola may launch the Edge 30 Ultra, also referred to as Moto Edge X, in China. Even before the launch, some key details regarding the phone has emerged like Snapdragon 898 SoC from Qualcomm and a 60-megapixel selfie camera. As the teaser for the phone came out earlier this month, it was pretty clear that it could be the first smartphone with Snapdragon 898 SoC. While it was anticipated that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 898 SoC may be unveiled at Qualcomm Tech Summit on November 30, the chipmaker seems to have a different plan for naming its new chipsets. Reports indicate that Qualcomm may rename Snapdragon 888 to Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Though it won’t make an impact on Motorola, certainly it will take some time to get used to the new nomenclature. Today, we also hear that Motorola may introduce not one, but two flagship smartphones next month.

Popular tipster Digital Chat Station has, once again come up with this piece of information. According to him, one of the flagships will come with the existing Snapdragon SoC under 8-series while the other one will come with a next-gen 8-series SoC. The tipster claimed that Motorola would also announce a phone powered by the Snapdragon 888+ chipset, an overclocked variant of the Snapdragon 888 SoC. It is also a flagship chipset from Qualcomm, powering some of the most powerful phones and quite a few gaming ones.

As of now, there is no information available regarding the hardware specifications of the phone with Snapdragon 888+. Even the tipster didn’t talk much about the phone; however, he mentioned that the phone would come at a low price. That’s something good and due to the different naming schemes of the Moto Edge 30 Ultra or Moto Edge X, it is expected that Motorola may launch the phone in different markets, including India.
