Motorola has just announced a pair of 5G smartphones. Named Edge and Edge+, the name comes from the term that the company used for the devices’ display – “Endless Edge.”
The flagship, Edge+ has a 6.7-inch HDR10+ AMOLED display. While FHD+ resolution is not exactly impressive for a 2020 flagship, it does compensate with a 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, it has a Snapdragon 865, 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. There’s no provision for a microSD card.
Its triple rear camera system is composed of a 108MP main sensor, an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and OIS, a 16MP ultra-wide unit which also works as a macro camera, and lastly, a ToF unit. Upfront, you get a 25MP selfie snapper tucked in a punch hole.
Edge+ packs a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast-charging via a USB-C port as well as 15W Wireless Charging. It can also charge Qi-compatible devices at 5W.
Edge, the mid-range variant shares the same 6.7-inch screen, minus HDR10. It runs on a Snapdragon 765G backed by 8GB of RAM (4GB for NA variant) and 128GB of storage that can be expanded with a microSD card.
It also boasts the same triple camera setup as the plus, except that it uses a 64MP sensor as main. It also has a 25MP front snapper. The device has a 4,500mAh battery with 18W wired fast-charging and no wireless charging capability.
Both run on Android 10 with a promised update to at least Android 11.
Global variant of the Motorola Edge+ is priced at 1,199 Euros (PhP65,713.88), while the mid-range Edge will retail for 599 Euros (PhP32,826.30).
