According to a study conducted in 2016, an average smartphone user often upgrades the device after using it for around 2 years. The average lifetime of a smartphone nowadays would be even more than 2 years, which is the reason why we have started seeing super expensive devices (e.g. Galaxy S21 Ultra starting at $1200). The increase in the lifetime is attributed to the processors inside the smartphones. It is one of the main reasons why Qualcomm recently announced the Snapdragon 870, which is an overclocked version of the hugely popular Snapdragon 865+ SoC.
It seems the newly announced processor is coming very soon. The Motorolla Edge S releasing on 26th January is going to be the first device to be released with the new processor. The device is already up for reservation on JD.com ahead of the launch. The Edge S may be the Chinese version of the Motorolla ‘Nio’, that has already made rounds on the internet. According to a report from Gizmochina, an alleged poster of the unreleased device has been leaked. The leaked image reveals that the device will be available in a range of colors including White/Silver and Blue.
Motorolla has not released the posters of the devices though the company released a teaser image allegedly showing the back cameras. The leaked poster aligns with the image teased by Motorolla. The poster clearly reveals a Quad-camera array on the back which may include a primary, ultrawide, telephoto, and a macro lens. The specifications of the back cameras are still under the veil. Other specifications include dual front cameras, a 6.7-inch display with refresh rate up to 105Hz, 5000mAh battery, 8/12GB RAM, and 128/256GB of internal storage.
