Motorola Edge+ slated for an April 22nd launch
Motorola hasn't released a proper flagship in a long time. The company's last 'flagship' offering ran antiquated hardware and fell flat against just about every similarly-priced alternative. The rumor mill was abuzz with mentions of an upcoming Motorola Edge+ flagship. It has been in the works for quite some time and reportedly comes with a waterfall display.
Motorola has revealed an official release date for a 'flagship' phone. The information comes from Motorola's official Twitter handle. Motorola Edge+ will be unveiled at an online-only launch event that will be held on April 22nd, 11 AM CDT. Although it doesn't mention the device by name, the promotional video attached to the Tweet heavily emphasizes on the rounded edge aesthetic.
Previous leaks speculated that the Motorola Edge+ will come with a Snapdragon 865, up to 12 GB of RAM, a 108MP camera, 5,000mAh battery, and a high-refresh-rate screen. There will also be an entry-level variant of the phone that will ship with a Snapdragon 7xx series chip. We can also expect Motorola to unveil a few mid-range offerings alongside its first (and possibly only) 2020 flagship.
It'll be interesting to see how Motorola decides to price the Motorola Edge+. The company has been out of the premium segment for a long time. It now faces more competition than ever from the likes of Xiaomi, Poco, Redmi, and iQOO. One way to get back into the flagship market would be to undercut all competitors, and it is unlikely that Motorola will do that.
