Verizon is one of the biggest companies pushing 5G here in the U.S. They have several 5G-capable smartphones in their lineup and have continued to light up their mmWave 5G network in more cities. Last week, the company was demonstrating its mmWave 5G network speeds when they spilled the beans that they will be carrying an upcoming Motorola phone with 5G, which should be the Motorola Edge+.

The press release was about the company achieving 4.2 Gbps on its 5G network, but they also mentioned an upcoming Motorola phone. Verizon didn’t share many details, other than it is “powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform with the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System.” Earlier this month, we shared photos of the upper mid-range sibling of the Motorola device with these specifications.

Motorola confirmed late last year that they would be releasing a phone with the Snapdragon 865. We believe this device could be called the “Motorola One 2020” when it’s released internationally, but we now know it will be called the Motorola Edge+ when it launches on Verizon. It will be the company’s first true flagship since the Moto Z3, and our Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman has more information about it.

The Edge+ will have the aforementioned Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, a 6.67-inch 2340 x 1080 “waterfall” display with a 90Hz refresh rate, up to 12GB of RAM, and a battery over 5,000 mAh. These specifications certainly put the device in the flagship market where it will compete with the likes of the Galaxy S20.

Verizon did not share any information about when we can expect to see this 5G Motorola phone, but we’d guess it won’t be long from now. What do you think of this flagship Motorola phone? Are you ready to give the Motorola Edge+ a chance?
