Recently Motorola has launched its Razr 2019 and now the company is back in the flagship ring with its brand new Motorola Edge and Edge+ after a long time. As both the smartphones are flagship, they offers high-end specifications, design and features. They meets 2020 flagship standards with their specs and design. Similarly, Motorola had Moto G8 Power and Moto G8 Power Lite.

Motorola Edge+ Overview

Motorola Edge+ flaunts a beautiful curved display with endless edge to give the impression of zero side bezels and comes with narrow 21:9 aspect ratio. The display can switch from curved edges to thin bezels tweaking the setting to prevent the accidental touches.

The smartphone features tall 6.7” Full HD+ OLED display with support for HDR 10+. As it has been the trend for smartphone to feature high refresh rate, the device comes with 90Hz panel with smooth scrolling compared to many current panels. It is the first Motorola smartphone to feature high refresh rate. Also the display host an inbuilt fingerprint display which is seemly fast.

The back of the device has a glossy finish with a camera bump on the top left corner aligned vertically and the company’s logo at the center. The front camera is housed in tiny hole present in the bezelless display. Though the phone comes with water replant design, there’s no official ingress protection rating. The volume and power button is placed on the right side, left side contains nothing, upper portion has a 3.5mm headphone jack whereas bottom of the phone consists USB type-C, dual stereo speakers tuned by waves and a single SIM tray.

Moving on towards the hardware, the phone features go-to flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset along with X55 modem supporting both mmWave and Sub-6 5G setup. For faster performance it packs 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of non-expandable UFS 3.0 storage.
On the software front it runs on Android 10 out of the box. Additionally Moto edge assistance helps you to show the notifications and calls through the edges. There is also a Moto game time which blocks calls, messages and enables the multi window option while gaming.
 
As far as the camera is concerned, the quad camera rear setup comes with 108MP Quad Bayer primary sensor with an aperture of f/1.8 which shoots quad pixel 27MP stills by default or you can go with 108MP megapixel shots. It is also capable for shooting up to 6k videos. Joining, there is an 8MP telephoto lens with OIS and capable of 3x optical zoom, a 16MP ultra-wide shooter featuring macro shots too and lastly a time-of-flight sensor for depth calculation. On the other hand, there’s a 25MP front facing camera which also comes with quad pixel technology.
 
Fueling the entire package is a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W TurboPower wired charging, 15W wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging. The 18W wired charging is not quite up to speed and really a disappointment.
 

Price and Availability

The Motorola Edge+ comes with the ambitious price of $999 and will be available from the 14th April in the US.  Then the device will visit European countries for the tag €1,199. Even though there is no authorized dealer of Motorola in Nepal we expect the device to be available with the price tag of Rs. 1,45,000.

Motorola Edge Overview

 
Along with the flagship Edge+, there is also a less expensive mid-range model termed as Edge. Though the Motorola Edge is half-priced you are you are getting the same gorgeous exterior, 6.7” curved OLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR 10+ is replaced by HDR 10.
 
Motorola has chosen Snapdragon 765G SoC instead of Snapdragon 865 to cut the price. Snapdragon 765G SoC is based on 7nm process and has integrated 5G modem with gaming capabilities. The chipset is paired with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
 
Another swap is on camera, the main camera is dropped to a 64MP sensor from 108MP. Moreover, it shares same telephoto lens but zoom reduced from 3x to 2x, ultra-wide lens and a 3D TOF sensor.
 
Moving on to battery, there’s a 4,500mAh battery and the wireless charging has been removed. Moving on the storage can be expanded via MicroSD card and also can be used as second SIM slot.
