The Motorola Edge S has shown up on Geekbench as the Moto G100, indicating that it could be launched globally soon. It managed to net a single-core score of 957 and a multi-core score of 2,815. This particular variant has 8GB of RAM and runs Android 11.
Motorola’s first Qualcomm Snapdragon 870-powered Motorola Edge S made quite a splash, managing to sell over 10,000 units within the first two minutes when it was launched in China some time ago. While there is still no word about its global availability, a new leak tells that it could be hitting global shores with a different monicker.
The information comes via well-known Twitter leaker Abhishek Yadav, who stumbled upon the Motorola Edge S on Geekbench, which also tells us that it will be called the Moto G100. Its single and multi-core results are 957 and 2,815, respectively. These numbers fall in line with earlier showings of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 on Geekbench. Furthermore, it runs an Adreno 650 GPU, coupled with 8GB of RAM and Android 11.
The Moto G100 will likely serve as the crown jewel of the newly renamed Moto G line of smartphones. Based on what we’ve seen so far, the Moto G10 is an entry-level device for those on a tight budget, with the Moto G30 acting as its slightly better-specced cousins. There could be some intermediary devices in the works too, such as the Moto G50, Moto G70, etc.
