A Verizon press release about their 5G network achieving 4.2 Gbps using carrier agregation contains information and specs confirming the existance of an upcomming Motorola flagship. We expect this to be the previously leaked Motorola Edge Plus (Edge+) with a stylus, a competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note10.

It was about five weeks ago when Evan Blass posted renders of the Motorola Edge Plus (Edge+) with a stylus, and a week later when Geekbench results showing strong device performance appeared. The rumoured specs and design indicated that the Edge Plus would be Motorola’s first true flagship phone since the Moto Z3 in Q3 2018 (the specs of the successor Moto Z4 were cut back with a Snapdragon 675 and 4 GB of RAM).

A press release made by Verizon this weekend has confirmed the existence of the Edge Plus, which is expected to be a Verizon exclusive in the USA. The announcement was about Verizon, Samsung, Motorola, and Qualcomm setting a new 4.2 Gbps speed record on a live 5G network using carrier aggregation (combining eight 5G channels). However, the device used was “Motorola’s upcoming flagship device” using a Snapdragon 865 and X55 5G modem, meaning that the Edge Plus (or similar device) is real and will be officially announced soon. The earlier leak also indicated that it would have 12 GB of RAM.

If Motorola follows a similar affordability-first approach to their earlier flagships in the Z-line and includes a camera and screen that are good enough while still being relatively cheap, it could be a viable value alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note10, similar to the Note10 Lite.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
