Motorola is working on a Snapdragon 888-powered phone, but it’s not the smartphone you would expect – next year there will be a Moto G phone with a flagship 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 an 888 chip. And that is probably still coming.
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.
