We are waiting for its announcement from November 30 to December 2; after which a number of Android smartphone manufacturers will line up for it.

Will the Moto Edge X win the Snapdragon 898 race over the Xiaomi 12
The general director of the mobile division of Lenovo Chen Jin published a teaser on his Weibo page that promises the release of the Moto Edge X smartphone. What kind of model it will be and what features it will be endowed with, the top manager did not announce. He only limited himself to the promise that it would be an “infinitely powerful” smartphone.
There is an assumption that Moto Edge X will become the next flagship of the company and according to its status; it is supposed to have the most powerful chip on the market. As a hardware platform, the devices tend to see the Snapdragon 898. Interestingly, Moto Edge X may take away the right to be the first with the new chip from the Xiaomi 12.
The well-known network insider Digital Chat Station announced last week about Lenovo’s plans to release the first flagship with Snapdragon 898. And this should happen before the end of this year. At the same time, he recalled that it was Motorola that first brought the sub-flagship to the market with Snapdragon 870.
Today, an insider confirmed Motorola’s desire to bypass everyone in the race for the Snapdragon 898 and the owner of the new chip should be Moto Edge X. Let’s see who will ultimately show the greatest favor to Qualcomm: Lenovo or Xiaomi.
