In December, Motorola will release the Moto Edge X, which will be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship chipset. While the rumor mill has dubbed the chipset the Snapdragon 898, a new report from today claims that the U.S.-based chip company will introduce it as the “Snapdragon 8 Gen1.” According to Digital Chat Station, a reputable tip source, the Lenovo-owned company intends to introduce twin flagships in China in December. These devices are claimed to be powered by a current Snapdragon 8-series CPU as well as a next-generation 8-series SoC.
According to the report, Motorola will also reveal a phone powered by the Snapdragon 888+ CPU in order to launch dual flagship phones. Some flagship phones that have used this chipset include the iQOO 8 Pro, Vivo X70 Pro+, Red Magic 6S Pro, ROG Phone 5S, Honor Magic 3 Pro, and Meizu 18s.
The Snapdragon 888 Plus, as the name suggests, is an overclocked variant of the Snapdragon 888 SoC. The source did not reveal any details on the impending Snapdragon 888+ SoC-powered flagship. Given that the Snapdragon 8 Gen1-powered Motorola flagship will be known as the Moto Edge X, the SD888+ is expected to be released as an Edge series phone as well.
