The Motorola Edge S is expected to be announced very soon. The phone is said to be unveiled tomorrow, January 26, 2021, according to a leaked material. The image also shows the Motorola Edge S’ first look. We’ve been saying this is the Motorola Nio. And looking at the live images that surfaced before, the Motorola Edge S and the Motorola Nio are one and the same. This phone won’t be powered by the newest Snapdragon 888 but by the recently-announced Snapdragon 870 by Qualcomm.
The Motorola Edge S aka Motorola Nio aka Moto G in some international markets, this phone will boast a square camera module. The quad camera system features a 64MP main shooter, 16MP ultra-wide camera, 2MP depth module, and a laser autofocus.
The white Motorola Edge S in the image is called the ‘Sky’. We also see the ‘Berly’ color edition which is basically blue. Other colors may also be available.
Motorola Edge S Specs
Let’s review the specs and what we know so far. The Motorola Edge S may come with a large 6.7-inches Full-HD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate (up to 105Hz peak refresh rate). There will be two selfie cameras: 16MP and 8MP. They will be placed under a pinhole.
Motorola isn’t adding a rear fingerprint sensor, just a side-mounted scanner. There won’t be an in-display fingerprint reader. The battery is 5000mAh with 20W fast charging.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Motorola announced four new budget-friendly Moto smartphones: the Motorola One 5G Ace, Moto G Play 2021, Moto G Power 2021, and the Moto G Stylus. The Motorola Edge S is expected to be a flagship smartphone but we believe it will still be affordable compared to other flagship devices.
