[Update: More renders] Motorola Edge+ leaked renders show off waterfall display and triple cameras
Motorola (owned by Lenovo) has been doing a bang-up job in the low-end and mid-range smartphone segment. The Moto G7 series was very successful, and they’ve followed it up with the Moto G8 series. However, the company is set to return to the flagship market this year with the Motorola Edge+. We’re getting a new look at the device thanks to some leaked renders.
We exclusively reported on two Motorola devices 5G and 90Hz waterfall displays last month. At the time, we didn’t have a confirmed name for either model, but we’ve since discovered the flagship model will be called the Motorola Edge+. We also had a few real-life photos of the upper mid-range Motorola device that will share the same design as the Edge+. Today, we’re getting our first look at the Edge+ itself through some renders.
The leaked renders give us a much clearer look at the Motorola Edge+. The front of the phone features a small hole-punch in the top left corner and a display that wraps dramatically around the edges. This matches up perfectly with what we saw from the other 5G Moto phone. Around back, we can see the three cameras arranged in a vertical stack and an LED ring around the Motorola logo.
The bottom edge of the phone features a USB-C port and a speaker grill. Surprisingly for a flagship phone, the top edge looks to have a 3.5mm headphone jack. There is said to be an under-display fingerprint scanner as well. Unlike some previous phones with waterfall displays, the Motorola Edge+ appears to still have physical volume and power buttons.
There aren’t any new specifications to note from this report, but we can recap what we know already. The display is 6.67-inches with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 and 90Hz refresh rate. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 with support for 5G. The device will have 8 or 12GB of RAM, a 5,169mAh battery, and Android 10. There’s still a lot we don’t know about this upcoming device.
