It is expected that the upcoming flagship from Motorola is the Motorola Edge X series coming next month. The greatest highlight of the flagship is that it features the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 flagship processor.

Although the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 has not yet been announced, details about this processor have already been exposed. The SoC is based on Samsung’s 4nm process and uses the Cortex X2 super core for the first time. Moreover, the CPU frequency has exceeded 3.0GHz, and the GPU is Adreno 730. The Antutu score is expected to exceed 1,000,000 points.

There should be no surprise about Motorola being the first to feature the SoC. Chen Jin has hinted many times on Weibo that Motorola will be the first one to do so. At present, Moto Edge X has obtained the network license and is waiting for the conference to happen next month.
