Next Motorola Edge is almost ready to face the Galaxy S21

Motorola may have just updated its Moto G series of phones and released the $399 Motorola One 5G Ace. But the company has bigger targets in its sights, with all signs pointing to a new flagship device that Motorola hopes can measure up against the best Android phones.

That would be another edition to the Motorola Edge lineup, which Motorola launched last year with the Motorola Edge Plus. That phone didn’t exactly knock Samsung’s Galaxy flagships off their roost, but it sounds like Motorola may be read to try again with a new model.

A launch announcement found on Chinese social media platform Weibo that appears to be from Motorola itself states that a new phone is set to debut as early as next week. The post lists a Jan. 26 launch date and touts the arrival of the Motorola Edge S.

We can glean a few other details from this post: The Motorola Edge S will be a 5G-compatible device and powered by a Snapdragon 870G chipset. That’s the system-on-chip announced by Qualcomm earlier this week that’s a follow-up to last year’s Snapdragon 865 Plus. While not as powerful as the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform found inside the new Galaxy S21 lineup, the 870G should deliver faster performance than last year’s Android flagship phones.
