Motorola, iQOO, OnePlus, OPPO, and Xiaomi will quickly launch a new vary of sub-flagship 5G devices powered with the aid of Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 series chip, the Snapdragon 870. While these OEMs haven’t published any data about the devices yet, we have cause to trust that the upcoming OnePlus 9 Lite, Redmi K40, and Moto G flagship will characteristic the new SoC. Here’s the entirety we recognize about the devices so far:

Motorola Edge S (China)/unnamed Moto G flagship

Motorola has commenced teasing a new phone in China known as the Motorola Edge S. The company has proven that the device will be powered through the Snapdragon 870, and it will launch in China on January 26th. Additionally, the company has until now proven that it will launch a flagship Moto G series device this year, offering a Snapdragon 800 series processor. This upcoming Moto G device should maybe be the international version of the Motorola Edge S.

Motorola has additionally been rumored to be working on a new flagship phone code-named “Nio”, which has seemed in various leaks over a remaining couple of months. While the preceding leaks suggested that the device will be powered with the aid of the Snapdragon 865 (sm8250-AA) or 865 Plus(sm8250-AB), now that we comprehend that the new Snapdragon 870 (sm8250-AC) is simply a variant of the Snapdragon 865, it’s possible that “Nio” will feature the new chipset.

Recent leaks of the upcoming Moto G flagship have given us an excellent seem at its design and some of its features. Leaked hands-on images of the device (via Slashleaks) recommend that it will help “Audio Zoom”, which is something that we have proven in a preceding leak. The images additionally divulge that it will feature a quad-camera setup on the back, a twin hole-punch cutout over on the display for the selfie cameras, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

It’s really worth noting that the hands-on picture of the front panel matches up with every other stay picture from reputed leaker Evan Blass. Furthermore, an FCC submitting of the device has verified that it will pack a 5,000mAh battery with help for 20W quick charging. Additionally, we’ve additionally validated that the Motorola Nio will feature aid for a desktop mode and it’ll run Android 11 out of the box.

Redmi K40
Earlier this month, Xiaomi established that its upcoming Redmi K40 will feature the Snapdragon 888 SoC. However, the latest leak from Weibo leaker Digital Chat Station suggests that there will be two devices in the Redmi K40 series: a normal K40 with an “unreleased sub-flagship processor” and a K40 Pro with the Snapdragon 888. Since the leak got here simply a day earlier than the official Snapdragon 870 announcement, we agree that the normal Redmi K40 will feature the new chipset. Additionally, due to the fact, Xiaomi has launched non-Pro/Pro Redmi K series devices in the past, this leak looks credible.

Furthermore, the folks over at XiaomiUI have corroborated the data shared via Digital Chat Station and have revealed some extra important points about the normal Redmi K40. According to their post, the Redmi K40 will go by using the code-name “ALIOTH” (“ALIOTHIN” for the non-NFC Indian variant), and it will feature an AMOLED display, a 4,520mAh battery, and the Snapdragon 870 chipset. It in addition provides that the device will function a triple camera setup with a 48MP primary camera, an ultra-wide-angle camera, and a macro camera. The device will in all likelihood have the same design as the Redmi K40 Pro.

OnePlus 9 Lite
Late last year, renowned OnePlus tipster Max Jambor published that the upcoming OnePlus 9 series would consist of three devices — the normal OnePlus 9, the top-of-the-line OnePlus 9 Pro, and a device referred to as the OnePlus 9E. Soon thereafter, we noticed every other leak claiming that the third device would be known as the OnePlus 9 Lite, and it would function similar hardware to the OnePlus 8T.

Since the OnePlus 8T packed the Snapdragon 865 chip, we initially believed that the OnePlus 9 would both function the identical SoC or the Snapdragon 865+. However, now that Qualcomm has validated that OnePlus is working on a Snapdragon 870-powered device, the OnePlus 9 Lite/9E will possibly feature the new chipset.
