Furthermore, while there are a decent number of highlighted clues within its teaser video, fans can clearly see a sharply curved screen edge, which might be a hint for Motorola’s rumored Edge+ Smartphone, which has been mentioned a lot over the past few weeks.
However, no one’s yet 100% sure that Motorola’s upcoming high-end Smartphone will be called like that (“Edge+”), but at least, that’s what the rumors that are traveling around the globe have been suggesting.
Let’s take a more detailed look at the specs that are already known for the Motorola Edge+ Smartphone and check what the company’s new flagship phone is all about.
DESIGN & SPECS
The recent rumors suggest that the “Edge+” will feature an eye-catching design. The latest leaks also indicate that Motorola’s upcoming Smartphone will feature “bezel-free” sides, coming with a 6.67-inch “sharply” curved display that will boast FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz high refresh rate.
Furthermore, and as is expected from a flagship Smartphone, the upcoming “Edge+” will also come equipped with a Snapdragon 865 chip at its core. Additionally, its processor will be paired with either an 8GB or 12GB RAM memory, depending on what buyers choose to go with.
These leaks also revealed that the phone will be running on Android 10 in its first iteration, just like all other Motorola offerings.
The recent rumors also suggest that the Smartphone might pack a powerful 108MP primary rear camera, as well as wide-angle and telephoto sensors.
According to the recent leaks, the Motorola “Edge+” will also be Motorola’s first Smartphone to come with support for 5G networks.
BATTERY AND BATTERY LIFE
Lastly, the “Edge+” will be powered by a giant and super powerful 5,170mAh battery.
Obviously, given that this will be a flagship Smartphone, fast charging is most likely to be supported.

It’s not certain when the Motorola’s upcoming flagship phone will ship, as well as how much it will cost. Still, the recent rumors suggest that the Motorola Edge+ is expected to launch in the US via Verizon and will also be released globally, which means that you’ll probably won’t have to try super hard to get your hands on one.
However, one thing is definitely clear. Motorola is, without a doubt, committed on reestablishing itself in the Smartphone market, which the company had been lately ignoring quite a lot.
Lastly, whether or not Motorola will be able to pull people away from rival products like the Galaxy S20, that’s a whole other question.
