Motorola Edge S

The Motorola Edge S has a different design than its "older" brothers with a curved screen, as well as being a different concept. It is a terminal with a powerful processor, the Snapdragon 870, but some points have been cut to adjust the price. The panel is now flat, with IPS technology, 6.7 inches and Full HD + resolution. There are two small holes in its upper left corner, to house two 16 and 8 megapixel front cameras, respectively.

Along with the Snapdragon 870 come configurations of up to 8 + 256 GB of memory, a rather ambitious hardware configuration

The processor is accompanied by 6 or 8 GB of RAM, in addition to an internal memory configuration that ranges from 128 GB to 256 GB. To power this set comes a 5,000mAh battery with 20W fast charge, good figures for this terminal. In terms of connectivity, the terminal is compatible with 5G, dual-band WiFi, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, among others.

Regarding the camera, we have a triple rear sensor, which includes a 64-megapixel main camera, a 16-megapixel wide-angle and a third sensor to capture information about the depth of field. The double front camera will allow you to do portrait mode and enjoy wide angle, the entire set being powered by Motorola's AI.

As for the software, the Motorola Edge S arrives with Android 11 customized by Motorola, a layer of light personalization which quite respects the Android Stock interface.
