Motorola will launch Snapdragon 888-powered Moto G next year

Peter, 02 December 2020

Motorola is working on a Snapdragon 888-powered phone, but it may not the smartphone you would expect. Next year there will be a Moto G phone with a Snapdragon 800-series chipset. The G-series has been around for years and its focus has always been value-for-money.

Motorola returned to the flagship field after a few years absence, not with a Moto X phone, but with the Edge+. So, you would have thought that an Edge+ 2 or something will be the first Motorola with the new chip. And that is definitely coming too.

But a Moto G with a flagship chipset may shake up the market a bit – there has been a dearth of “flagship killer” style phone over the last couple of years.

This will be a 5G-connected phone, of course, a premium follow-up to the Moto G 5G and Moto G 5G Plus. Motorola’s 5G phones exclusively use Snapdragon chipsets and have already launched with over 100 partners around the world.

The press release is a bit evasive - it announces that a Snapdragon 888-powered smartphone is coming next year and that the G-phone will be out next year with a Snapdragon 800 chip. So, there's a chance that it will use the Snapdragon 865 instead (the rumored 870 never materialized).
