Motorola is making a comeback to the world of flagship smartphones with the new Edge lineup hitting stores around the world.
Motorola’s apparent absence from the smartphone market drove many users away from smartphones that bear the M logo.
However, Motorola used to be known many years ago for its amazing mainstream smartphones.
It appears that they plan to use the Edge series as a fresh reboot of the brand, which is arguably needed.
About The Moto Edge
The Motorola Edge will portrait Motorola in a new role. The company used to create its trends and design features, but this time is different as they are adopting more “traditional” market trends.
Analyzing the specifications of the Edge reveals that Motorola is aiming to make the Edge into a direct competitor for OnePlus, Apple, and Samsung flagships.
Both smartphones have a 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 3D curved sides and a punch-hole selfie camera. Also, the refresh rate of the screen is set at a surprising 90Hz.
The regular Edge is powered by a Snapdragon 765 chipset, while the Edge Plus runs on a Snapdragon 865. The significant part about the new phones is that they are both 5G enabled.
The regular model gets 6GB of RAM while the premium model gets 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, which is simply stunning.
Base storage is 128GB for the regular Edge and 256GB UFS 3.0 for the Edge+.
There is a 25MP front camera for both devices. The rear camera of the regular Edge is a 64MP module that is assisted by an 8MP telephoto camera and 16MP ultra-wide-angle sensor.
However, the primary camera of the Edge + was bumped up to 108MP with OIS assistance.
It appears that Motorola is taking no risks as their new smartphone lineup will put them back on the map. They sure know how to make the difference between a standard and a plus model specification-wise.
