If you assumed that the Razr was the only flagship from Motorola this year, think again. Leaks had given out information on new Motorola smartphones that would knock the doors in the same class where Apple and Samsung are playing right now. Motorola eventually announced that it is going to announce new premium phones on April 22, which is today. While the name hasn't been disclosed yet, there's hardly any doubt about this being the rumoured Motorola Edge series.
Motorola says it will announce a new flagship series in the US, one that could also make it to India later in the year. Motorola says that it is going to come out with fastest, boldest and loudest flagship phones in the industry, which gives us a lot to ponder over. The only teaser from the company has so far confirmed 3D curved edge display, which falls in line with what the leaks had to say.
Motorola Edge series: What to expect
The Edge series of phones is expected to mark Motorola's entry into the premium flagship smartphone space after a long gap since the Moto Z series. The Edge series is going to offer the best specifications fused along with some of the most premium features we can expect in smartphones today.
The Motorola Edge is expected to be Motorola's return to the premium midrange segment, i.e. the segment where you see brands like OnePlus and Samsung have a strong foothold.
-The Edge will make use of the Snapdragon 765 chipset, which will enable 5G for the supported markets. This will be paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
-The Edge is going to come with a 6.67-inch 90Hz Full HD+ AMOLED display with 3D curved edges (hence the name Edge?). There will be a punch-hole cutout for the front camera. Also, expect an in-display fingerprint sensor.
-Motorola will offer a triple camera setup on this one, consisting of a 64-megapixel main camera along with a 16-megapixel ultra wide angle camera and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera. The front camera is expected to be a 25-megapixel sensor.
-This phone is going to be powered by a 4500mAh battery and probably, support for 18W fast charging.
Motorola Edge Plus:
-This is supposed to be flagship model, boasting of a Snapdragon 865 chipset that could be paired with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. This one will also be 5G-enabled in supported markets.
-The display is supposed to be the same 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate and curved edges. However, this one is supposed to have an aspect ratio of 21:9.
-The biggest highlight of the Edge Plus is the 108-megapixel main camera that is expected to be the same sensor as the Samsung S20 Ultra and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. This could be paired with an ultra-wide camera and a telephoto camera.
-The Edge Plus could exchange fists with the Samsung S20 series phones and recently announced OnePlus 8 Pro.
