Motorola has finally entered the flagship smartphone race with the Motorola Edge+ and has also launched a sub-flagship Moto Edge. 

Motorola has often stayed away from the flagship market, especially in the last few years. This changes with the Edge devices as Motorola steps up its game.

The Motorola Edge+ features a 6.67 inch AMOLED display with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The display also has a 90Hz refresh rate which features a auto switch to lower refresh rates on low batteries. 

The 10 bit display is also HDR 10+ rated and the phone utilizes the edge in several ways.  The most interesting of which is the ability to add trigger buttons to the edge of the screen. These will act as tactile buttons during gaming on games like PubG Mobile and COD Mobile. 

Motorola is also using the Edge for notifications and animations during charging. Speaking of which the phone offers 15W Wireless charging, 18W Wired charging and also reverse wireless charging. The Moto Edge+ also features a 5000mAh battery. 

Motorola is also pushing camera capabilities with the devices. The main camera on the Edge+ is 108 MP 1/1.33″ Sensor with an f/1.7 aperture. The camera also offers 27 MP shots using the Quad Pixel tech to improve low light performance and dynamic range. This is paired with an 8 MP 3 times optical zoom telephoto sensor with f/2.4 aperture. 

Motorola claims that the cameras offer 6K video with the best in Industry Video Stabilization. The cameras also get a video portrait mode which is becoming more and more popular.  Motorola also offers its popular Night Vision photo modes on both front and rear cameras. 

Motorola has managed to use a single sensor for both Wide and Macro shots which sits at 16 MP with an f/2.2 aperture. The Edge+ also packs a TOF sensor with dual LED Flash. 

The innards of the Motorola Edge+ also competes with the latest flagships. The Moto Edge+ has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset with an Adreno 650 GPU. The phone is also capable of 5G with the X55 chip and will work on all bands including those in India when 5G becomes available. On the memory front the Motorola Edge+ has 12 GB RAM and 256 GB UFS 3.0 Storage. 

Motorola claims to also have worked on improving the Android interface on their devices starting with the Edge phones. Motorola has launched My UX which will be accessible from the Moto App. The interface on the phone remains as close to vanilla Android as before on Motorola devices with a few additions. Including Moto Game time which will also allow the customization on the trigger buttons among other things, like avoiding disturbances during gaming. 

Motorola will also allow for completely customized themes which will also be accessible from the MyUx mode in the Moto App. Motorola also includes the new Moto Audio app which will allow users finer control on their audio including that from the Dual Stereo speakers, which Motorola claims are loudest in the industry. These are also tuned by Waze audio. Moto Edge+ is also one of those rare devices that continues to provide a 3.5 mm headphone jack. 

The Moto Edge, a more affordable phone from Motorola maintains all of the same features of the Moto Edge+ except a few. For one the chipset is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765. The main camera also is reduced to 64 MP instead of the 108MP seen on the Edge+.

Moto Edge

The Moto Edge also has a 4500 mAh battery and removes the wireless charging seen on the Edge+. The MotoEdge will be available in a 6GB+128 GB variant and will offer expandable storage via microSD. 

The Moto Edge+ is priced at US$ 1000 and available immediately, where as the Moto Edge availability and price is yet to be announced. Motorola plans to launch the Edge+ and Edge in India post the lockdown period and according to the company the device will be priced aggressively. We expect the flagship Moto Edge+ to be Priced at Rs. 59,999.
