During an event in China yesterday, Motorola took the cover off its latest flagship smartphone – the Motorola Edge S. 

The latest Motorola handset arrived as the world’s first smartphone featuring the Snapdragon 870 chipset. 

Not only does the all-new Motorola Edge S pack a plethora of cutting-edge specs, but it also houses a battery with a large capacity. 

The device’s name contradicts its actual design. An average individual would expect the new Motorola smartphone to feature a curved display.

However, the phone comes with a flat display with two punch-holes for the front-facing cameras. 

The backside of the phones does have a curved design. And it packs a quad-camera system in a square-shaped module. 

The new Motorola Edge S features a 6.7-inch LCD panel that supports a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 90Hz refresh rate. The display supports a 2520 x 1080 pixels resolution, a pixel density of 409ppi, DCI-P3 colour gamut, and HDR10.

The Snapdragon 870 drives the Motorola Edge S. The processor improves its performance over its predecessors. 

According to Motorola, the all-new Edge S smartphone has a higher score than the Xiaomi Mi 10 on AnTuTu.

The Mi 10 scored 585,232 points on the benchmarking platform, and the new Motorola Edge S scores a higher 680,826 points. 

The high score garnered by the Moto Edge S is not dependent on the new processor alone, but also on the Turbo LPDDR5 RAM that comes with the phone.

The RAM on the Edge S is 72% faster than the LPDDR4, and it also offers the user with the UFS 3.1 storage, which is 25% faster than the UFS 3.0.

The quad-lens set up on the phone’s backside comprises a 64-megapixel primary shooter, and ultrawide 16-megapixel lens, a 2-megapixel depth shooter, and a TOF sensor. 

On the front side, a 16-megapixel + 8-megapixel camera system make up the dual-selfie shooter.

For software, the Motorola Edge S comes pre-installed with a new MY UI based on Android 11 OS. And it relies on a 5,000mAh battery that supports 20W charging. 

Other features of the Motorola Edge S include an IP52 rating, support for dual SIM, dual-frequency GPS, and Bluetooth 5.1.

The Motorola Edge S launched in three variants. They include:

  • 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage model – 1,999 Yuan (~$310)
  • 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage model – 2,399 Yuan (~$371)
  • 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage model – 2,799 Yuan (~$433)
