In recent years, the mobile industry has become somewhat unpredictable. This situation has led a number of smartphone manufacturers to use it constantly and to repeat duplicates over and over again in the hope of achieving different results.
According to Von Arena, unpredictability is not always the best strategy, and at least it does not work well for flagship products. For example, a few years ago, Motorola suddenly decided to distance itself from its flagships and broke that gap with the introduction of the Moto Edge Plus 2020. Then, a year and a half later, it introduced the first phone equipped with the Snapdragon 888, and now it intends to unveil its first first-generation Snapdragon 8 phone.
Now a well-known source on Twitter, along with the German journalist ThechnikNews, have claimed that Motorola will introduce another 5G flagship. This phone will be much more attractive than the Moto G200 or Moto Edge X30. Let’s first take a look at the rumored specifications of this new phone:
- Snapdragon SM8475 chip
- Old 6.67-inch display with 144Hz refresh rate and Full HD Plus resolution
- Triple rear camera with 200-megapixel main camera, 50-megapixel secondary camera and 12-megapixel camera
- 60 megapixel selfie camera
- Take advantage of 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage
- Support for 120 watt ultra-fast wired charging
- 50 watt wireless charging capability
- Default implementation of Android operating system 12
This phone, like other flagship models on the market, looks great on paper in terms of technical specifications; But before you get too excited, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Do not expect the release of this flagship soon
If you haven’t noticed, there’s no Snapdragon SM8475 processor yet, and this is just the advanced silicon model number that Qualcomm is working on, and it looks like it will be introduced as the next replacement for the first-generation Snapdragon 8.
The first-generation Snapdragon 8 processor was unveiled about two months ago; Therefore, technically, the next generation of this processor still has a long way to go. If there really are serious problems with the overheating of the first-generation Snapdragon 8 processor, the hypothesis of a brand new chip may not be far-fetched.
However, we are not sure if the device, currently known only by its code name “Frontier”, will be introduced before the fall. It is also possible that the specifications for the next Motorola flagship will change before the official unveiling.
Earlier, it was reported that Motorola will use a 200-megapixel camera made by Samsung in an unknown device. It’s worth noting that Motorola’s next flagship 5G 5-megapixel camera is probably the same ultra-wide camera used in the OnePlus 10 Pro. Motorola will reportedly use a 12-megapixel telephoto camera to complete its next flagship rear camera module. In addition, the device is expected to be equipped with a 60-megapixel OmniVision camera; This is the same camera used in the Moto Edge X30.
However, the X30 uses 68 watt wired charging and does not support wireless charging technology. By comparison, the Frontier can even compete with other handsets like the OnePlus 10 Pro in terms of charging speed. Motorola apparently intends to step up its efforts to compete closely with companies such as OnePlus, Xiaomi, Samsung and Apple with the powerful new 5G flagship.
