Motorola was making smartphones that were mostly nothing fancy until the release of the flagship Motorola Edge+ in early 2020. crazy internals.

According to German website TechnikNews, Motorola is already working on a next-gen flagship device, which looks like a worthy challenger to the best Android phones arriving this year. Dubbed “Frontier”, the upcoming smartphone is said to have a 200MP primary sensor built by Samsung.

Motorola was rumored to be the first to use Samsung’s massive camera sensor late last year. So the new leak comes as no surprise. To complete the triple rear camera setup, a 50MP ultra-wide camera and a 12MP telephoto sensor from Sony could be completed. On the front, we could see the same 60MP sensor from the Motorola Edge X30.

Although the leak omitted details about the phone’s battery, it does claim that there is 125W wired charging support and 50W wireless charging capabilities like the OnePlus 9 Pro. The phone is also likely to run Android 12 out of the box and sport a 6.67-inch FullHD+ OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate.

The phone will supposedly be powered by a Snapdragon SM8475 SoC, an as-yet-unannounced flagship chipset that is expected to succeed Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the future. It will most likely come with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.

It could be a while before this processor becomes commercially available, especially since the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC is still only rolling out to a few smartphones after its debut a few months ago.

This means that the incredibly powerful smartphone might not be available to consumers anytime soon. But, at the very least, we can expect to see a flagship phone from Motorola that looks beefy on paper.
