Motorola Edge+ flagship phablet spotted in Geekbench tests
Last week, EVLeaks was hinting at the imminent unveiling of a new Motorola flagship phone bundled with a stylus, and it looked like the official name for this device could be Edge+. Thanks to some digging from the guys over at IndiaShopps, this was recently confirmed with the spotting of a “motorola edge plus” on the popular Geekbench test database.
Besides the punch-hole display and the stylus, the Edge+ will feature 12 GB of RAM and, even though this is not specified by the Geekbench test, the SoC appears to be a Snapdragon 865. This is further supported by the single-core / multi-core results that seem to be in-line with previous tests performed on Snapdragon 865 smartphones. Interestingly enough, these results were obtained with the 4.4.0 version instead of the 5.0.4 one, which was used with most Snapdragon 865 leaks. There is still a chance that these results could be fake, since it is fairly easy to tamper with the phone ID info, so make sure you have some salt close by.
EVLeaks also mentioned that the Edge+ model will be exclusive to Verizon Wireless in the U.S. With the release of a phablet flagship, Motorola is sure looking to provide some competition for Samsung’s Galaxy Note lineup. In a similar fashion the foldable Razr remake should go head to head with the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip from Samsung.
