Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge+ launched

Motorola has just launched the Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge+ devices. The phones are named after what Motorola calls “Endless Edge”, the company’s interpretation of the waterfall screen. There were earlier leaks of the Motorola Edge’s curved display. Now, the phone is confirmed.

Motorola Edge Specifications and Features

Motorola Edge

The Motorola Edge sports a 6.7-inch 90Hz curved punch-hole display. Unlike the Edge+, the Motorola Edge does not support HDR10+. The phone uses the Snapdragon 765G chipset. It is configured only for sub-6GHz networks even though it supports both flavors of 5G.

The Motorola Edge comes with 4GB of RAM in the North American version. The global version has a RAM capacity of 6GB. You get 128GB of storage on the device. This can be expanded via a microSD card.

The Motorola edge comes with a triple-camera setup. It uses a 64MP main shooter, coupled with an ultra-wide-angle camera and a telephoto lens. It also includes a ToF module. On the front sits a 25MP selfie camera. The device is powered by a 4,500mAh battery with 18W wired charging speed. It does not support wireless charging. The phone retains the 3.5mm audio jack.

In the software department, the Motorola Edge runs Android 10. However, Motorola promises to update it to Android 11, at least.

Motorola Edge Price and Availability

The Motorola Edge has a price tag of €599. It will come to Europe, Latin America, and the Asia Pacific in May. It is expected to get to the United States later on. The phone is available in Solar Black and Midnight Magenta color options.

The Motorola Edge+ boasts a 6.7-inch 1080p AMOLED panel that supports HDR10+. Like the Motorola Edge, the Edge+ supports a 90Hz refresh rate. The device has a punch hole in the top-left corner, housing its selfie camera. It uses an in-display fingerprint reader.

This is Motorola’s first proper 5G phone with the US version of the Edge+ supporting mmWave 5G. The global version of the device will, however, get sub-6GHz 5G.

The Motorola Edge+ also sports a triple-camera setup on the rear. The primary camera is a 108MP shooter. It does 4-in-1 pixel binning to produce 27MP photos, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra‘s 108MP camera. The other two cameras are a 16MP ultra-wide-angle shooter and an 8MP telephoto camera. The phone can record 6K videos.

Powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset, the Motorola Edge+ comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Just like the Motorola Edge, the Edge+ retains the 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Motorola Edge+ gets juice from a 5,000mAh battery. It also supports 18W fast charging over USB-C. According to Motorola, the battery can last for 2 days of use. The device supports reverse wireless charging. It can take in power at 15W and share it with other Qi-compatible devices at 5W.

Motorola Edge+ Price and Availability

The global version of the Motorola Edge+ costs €1,199 and will come out in May. The US version, however, will set you back $1,000. It will go on sale on May 14 as a Verizon exclusive. The Motorola Edge+ is available in Smokey Sangria and Thunder Grey color options.
