Today we are going to talk about leaked specs, price, and release date of Motorola Athena, a new mid-range mobile from the famous company. And it is a very smart bet, since throughout 2020, as we have already been telling you, the model of creating a large catalog of smartphones in this segment, but providing some high-end features, has achieved success.
Motorola Athena leaked specs
For the moment, from the leaked specs we know, the most notable thing is that, Motorola Athena will have Snapdragon 662. It is an integrated chip introduced by Qualcomm early last year and it consists of a Kryo 260 CPU with eight cores, four high-performance Cortex-A73 and four efficiency Cortex-A53, an Adreno 610 GPU and a Hexagon 683 DSP. Its image processor, a Spectre 340T, supports 48MP photosensors, HEIF, and triple-lens cameras.
It will have 4GB RAM. For now, there are not many details about its screen but we know that the display will likely have a small notch at the top for the front camera. However, it should be clarified that this has been extracted from the alleged image that has been uploaded to the testing sites, so it might not be the final version.
We also have information about the performance of the Motorola Athena: 1,523 points in the single-core test and 5,727 points in the overall performance test. Thus, another point, along with those we have already seen above, which confirm that we are talking about a new mid-range, maybe even lower-mid, which will compete in the segment of the most economical smartphones. Even though it looks like it will offer a good performance, well above what we can find in other smartphones in its range.
Motorola Athena release date and price
For now, we don’t know anything about Motorola Athena’s release date or price. We’ll be looking forward to it.
