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 writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to site and its readership.
