Will Motorola make a comeback with this absolute beauty?

Will Motorola make a comeback with this absolute beauty?

Fans of high-end smartphones could soon fancy the Motorola brand again. Because as a leak shows, Motorola is working on its big flagship comeback. The Motorola Edge+ looks visually and technically quite exciting.

"That looks delicious," Shu wrote in our Editorial team chat when the images leaked. When you look at the picture of the alleged Motorola Edge+, you can only agree with his enthusiasm. The new high-end device from the Lenovo subsidiary impresses with a bezel-less 'edge display' and two successful color concepts. Pictures of the Motorola Edge and Edge+ have appeared on the XDA Developers site as well as on the Twitter channel of Evan Blass. So chances are good that this is a rumor with a high degree of truth behind it.

Motorola Edge+: what the pictures tell us

The design is not exactly new. Even the name, Motorola has taken from the past, if the rumors are true. Samsung had rather moderate success with its Edge display, though. Nevertheless, the year 2020 seems to bring back the trend. The Huawei P40 Pro, which will soon be presented via a live stream, also comes with an extremely curved display and virtual keys. Motorola seems to also be getting in on the act now with its own new Edge display. In the pictures, we don't only see the panel, which is strongly curved to the sides, but also physical keys. The Edge+ could become quite thick, as the rendered pictures show, which look a lot like official press pictures. The thickness would suggest 5G is on board.

The protruding camera module on the back of the Motorola Edge+ is also clearly visible. This is a triple camera with a 108-megapixel sensor. According to XDA Developers, the basic model without the "+" addition should have a 64-megapixel sensor here, which is supplemented by a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens.

Further technical details point to an installed Snapdragon 865, 12GB of RAM and an ample 5,000 mAh battery. In addition, a 6.67-inch display with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels and a refresh rate of 90Hz will be used in both devices. In addition to all the luxury class equipment, it is surprising that Motorola will also install a 3.5 mm headphone jack. A USB-C port is also available for charging and data transfer, but there is probably no quick charging functionality.

What we do not know yet

Quite a lot of details about the Motorola Egde and Edge+ are already known. The most important question is probably the price. We will probably groan loudly here, because Motorola cannot afford to offer high-end smartphones at low prices, as Xiaomi does with its top-of-the-line devices, which are hundreds of dollars cheaper than almost identical devices from Samsung or Huawei. Besides, we don't know yet when Motorola will officially announce and launch the smartphones. It is assumed that the time will come in the first half of the year. We remain excited and looking forward to seeing Motorola back at the top table once again.

  • Well I took another close look at the pictures. If the curved edge display doesn't have sensitive touch capability, then I might be interested. Of course that also depends on the price.

    Pricing, nfc, and wireless charging. Glad to see the headphone jack return, but the others are important


  • Welcome back to the flagship space, Lenovorola? If you improve the camera & video, I'm all in? The jack & the large battery certainly won't hurt! Keep the price down?

    The new Motorola model looks good, being an alternative for those who like curved edges screen. Even the camera has very good performance. I personally prefer narrower edges, but not wide screen on the edges.

    It is for sure I will not buy it. The reason I will not buy Samsung is the curved display. Looks like copy cat wana be

    It will largely depend on the price


  • Agree about the edge display. When I saw the pictures I thought they were Samsung ads in the article. Definitely waiting to see what the pricing will be.

    Ugh. So over the edge display. It was always a stupid idea.


    • One would think after all this time OEM'S would understand consumers really want flat display's? Edge or waterfalls are just not desired. False touches occur quite frequently but still they just don't care or read our reviews? Many consumers just hard pass these types of display's? Ya know what, I don't blame them one bit!

        The new Samsung S20 phones, where the curved edges of the display have been flattened out a lot, are really nice to use as a result.
