This is the first phone to claim the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 870. It's built on a 7nm process, has an 8-core processor with one Cortex-A78 core running at the highest-in-smartphone 3.2GHz. The Motorola Edge S naturally has 5G built in. You can configure the phone with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB (8/256GB) of UFS 3.1 storage.
The display is a 6.7-inch 90Hz IPS LCD of 2520x1080p resolution and offers HDR10 support. It has two cameras built-into it - 16MP main and 8MP ultrawide. The fingerprint scanner is embedded into the frame of the phone.
On the rear there are four sensors in total. A 64MP main camera with an f/1.7 aperture and support for 6K video capture at 30fps, a 16MP ultrawide with phase-detect autofocus, a 2MP fixed-focus depth sensor and a ToF sensor.
The phone is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 20W charging with the provided 20W adapter in the box. The Motorola Edge S is IP52 splash proof, has a 3.5mm headphone jack and comes with a charger, preinstalled screen protector, cable and a case.
