Motorola, for the past few years, was known for its excellent budget segment handsets from the popular Moto G and Moto E series range. With the arrival of competition from Chinese brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, among others, Motorola slowly began to lose its grip over the budget segment. It was at this juncture that the head-honchos at Motorola decided that now would be a good time to enter the mid-range to high-end segment where the company did not have too many offerings. Things started off with the launch of the Motorola RAZR, which is an interesting phone — but was simply too expensive for most people. Motorola’s second attempt at clawing back into the high-end segment comes in the form of its new Motorola Edge series devices. Currently, we know that the company plans to launch two new handsets called the Motorola Edge and the Motorola Edge Plus (marketed as the Motorola Edge+) on April 22.
In this article, we take a closer look at the Motorola Edge Plus – which, as you might have realized by now – is the pricier and the more feature-packed of the two Edge series devices that we currently know of.
Motorola Edge Plus Specifications, Features
While Motorola is yet to officially talk about the specifications of the Motorola Edge Plus, current rumors point towards the possibility that the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset from Qualcomm. As of now, there is no information about the storage and RAM options that the Motorola Edge Plus will be available in. However, we do expect the phone to be sold in an 8GB +128GB and 8GB+256GB variants, at least.

As for the display, the Motorola Edge Plus is expected to use a large 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution and support for 90Hz screen refresh rate as well as an in-display fingerprint scanner. The major taking point of the display is the fact that it will be curved towards the sides – thereby lending the ‘Edge’ branding to the handset. Details surrounding the camera setup on the Motorola Edge Plus remain scant at the moment. We do know, however, that the phone gets a 108MP primary camera.
The Motorola Edge Plus will feature support for 5G networks in select markets, and if it ever makes it to India, we expect the phone to feature support for Indian 4G LTE bands. There is also a chance that we could see the phone launch as a Moto One series handset outside of the US market.
