Motorola's upcoming Moto Edge X might be the first handset to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898

According to a Weibo tipster that has been around for a while, Motorola's Moto Edge X will be the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 898-powered handset to hit the market. Sadly, there are no details regarding this possible launch available at this time and it is very likely that the handset will only be available in China for a while.

As the release of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 is drawing near, more rumors regarding the first handset to launch with it inside keep surfacing as well. While it wouldn't have been surprising to see Vivo becoming once again the brand that spearheads a new technology/hardware part with the NEX 2022, it seems that the honor of releasing the first Snapdragon 898-powered smartphone might go to Motorola this time.

Chen Jin, Motorola's general manager, has recently posted on Chinese social networking website Weibo that an "infinitely powerful" device known as the Moto Edge X is coming. While this label is quite general, it perfectly fits a device that would use the latest high-end processor available on the market. Since the Snapdragon 898 is expected to be unveiled next month, we just need to wait a few weeks until the truth surfaces.

Based on similar releases of new, powerful devices with barely unveiled hardware (for example the Xiaomi Mi 11), the Moto Edge X will probably see a limited launch in China before the end of the year, with global availability following in early 2022.

In the end, it looks like most users want improved battery life from the next-gen high-end mobile processors, at least based on a poll by Android Authority that received almost 200 votes so far. Do you agree with them? Would you like something else? As usual, the comments section is all yours, so go ahead and share your thoughts with the world.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
