It turns out that the first device to launch with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is not Xiaomi 12. Today, Moto has announced that it will be the first brand to introduce a flagship with the chipset, and it's happening in just three days.

On 9 December, Moto will debut the Edge X30 as the first device to come with the latest Snapdragon flagship chip. The CEO of Lenovo's mobile division explained that by doing so, "it can directly compete with Apple and Samsung in the global market, especially in South America", despite having a small market share in China. He also added that the brand has surpassed 50 million units this year and will continue to increase its performance in China.
