Motorola’s Edge+ full specifications and pricing have been leaked a day ahead of its launch. The first true flagship smartphone from the company in some time will come packed with high-end features at a high-end price.
Sanjiv Sathiah,

Verizon has spoiled the launch of the new Edge+ flagship Android smartphone from Motorola with a blog post going live early revealing its specs and pricing, before being pulled. The first proper high-end competitor from Motorola for some time (discounting the 2019 Razr foldable), the new smartphone will carry plenty of high-end punch but will also pack a US$1,000 launch price. This will pit it squarely against the likes of high-end phones from Apple and Samsung, while pricing it above makers like OnePlus.

What will that coin buy? In addition to the dramatically curved and almost bezel-free design, it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC mated to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.0 storage. It will also pack a large 5,000 mAh battery with 18 W fast wireless charging and 15 W fast wireless charging. Audio includes onboard stereo speakers and, importantly, a 3.5 mm headphone jack for optimum sound quality through wired headphones. It also includes Qualcomm's 5G cellular radio.

Cameras include a 108 MP main camera (f/1.8, OIS) using pixel binning to produce high resolution 27 MP photos.  This is joined one the rear by a 16 MP ultra-wide camera and a 8 MP telephoto shooter while single front-facing camera is rated at 25 MP. It will also ship with Android 10 out of the box and comes with a promise of an update to Android 11. The only obvious weakness is its 6.7-inch OLED display which is said to only offer a FHD (1080p) resolution but at least it offers a 90 Hz refresh rate. Coupled with the large battery, the plus side should be decent all-day performance.

Who’s keen?

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
