A number of leaks and rumors point to a true Motorola flagship to be launched in 2020. It is apparently to be called the Edge+, may run on an almost stock version of Android 10 and rock the Snapdragon 865 processor. This putative smartphone is also thought to be this OEM's first device with a waterfall display. XDA correspondents claim to have a brand new leak that may affirm this last detail.

It does not pertain to the rumored new top-tier contender itself, however, but to its alleged sibling, the Edge. According to this outlet's source, it does indeed feature a display that flexes over its longer sides - which may explain the name given to its apparent series: its USP consists of displays with former Samsung-flagship attributes. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that its Plus variant will have the same kind of panel.

Furthermore, this newly emergent future Motorola is described as a Snapdragon 765 device, whereas the Edge+ will indeed get the most premium Qualcomm SoC. The new base model is touted to have 6GB of RAM, whereas its premium counterpart may start at 8.

This Edge is also now linked to live images showing quad cameras in a shiny rear panel with an unusual, almost bronze-colored finish. The main shooter here is alleged to be of 64MP (although its images are converted to 16MP thanks to "Quad-Pixel" technology) - which is not unusual for recent Motorola offerings.

By contrast, the latest Edge+ leak points to triple rear cameras; then again, 1 is thought to be a more up-to-date 108MP sensor. Finally, the new alleged Motorola mid-ranger's 6.67-inch curving screen is said to be FHD+ in resolution: therefore, its more premium counterpart just might launch with QHD+ instead.

The new Motorola Edge leak also suggests specs such as a 90Hz refresh rate. (Source: XDA)

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
