Motorola Edge S hands-on photos seemingly confirm hexa-cameras as AnTuTu scores roll in
Motorola has confirmed that it will announce the Edge S on January 26, ahead of which it has published few teasers of the device. However, purported hands-on photos of the Edge S show that its design will depart from last year's Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge Plus. If these photos are legitimate, then Motorola has dispensed with a curved display for a flat one with noticeable bezels.
Additionally, the device has two front-facing cameras beneath dedicated punch holes located in the display's left-hand corner. The excess of cameras continues on the back too, with a 64 MP sensor seemingly the primary of four rear-facing lenses. The writing on the back of the device also implies that it will have a special microphone for tracking audio when recording videos.
Rumour has it that the Motorola Edge S will be the first smartphone running Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 870, essentially an overclocked Snapdragon 865. The Snapdragon 870 has also been benchmarked by AnTuTu, where it achieved an overall score of 679,680 points.
While this is higher than what the Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865 Plus achieve in the same benchmark, we would not read too much into one benchmark result. Additionally, the Motorola Edge S is expected to feature a 6.7-inch display with a 105 Hz refresh rate, so it could make for an exciting smartphone if the price is competitive.
