Nowadays, Motorola focused on making affordable smartphones with budget or mid-range specifications. Recently Motorola is once again looking to compete in the premium smartphone tier. It is preparing to launch the Motorola Edge+, a flagship smartphone with a curved “waterfall” display. Here are some major specifications of Motorola’s new model Motorola Edge+.
“The Motorola Edge will reportedly tout a waterfall display, punch-hole camera Snapdragon, and a high refresh rate.”

Motorola’s first Curved Display phone
The device will have a “waterfall” display with a physical power button and volume rocker, which is a different design approach from Huawei and Vivo but similar to what OPPO has done with the Find X2 Pro. The Motorola Edge will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and it will support expandable storage via a microSD card slot, too. So if this trend survives once more smartphones with “waterfall” displays arrive this year.
Design and Cameras
The Motorola Edge features a 64MP main camera, a 16MP wide-angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera. The 64MP image sensor outputs at 16MP with 4-in-1 pixel binning. The three cameras are arranged vertically to the top left side on the rear. Next to the triple cameras, you’ll find the phone’s laser auto-focus and dual-LED flash. Motorola’s logo is emblazoned on the rear, though it’s flat unlike most budget Motorola phones because the Motorola Edge doesn’t have a rear-mounted capacitive fingerprint scanner. Instead, the phone has an optical under-display fingerprint scanner.
Motorola Edge+ Display
Motorola is joining the high refresh rate bandwagon this year with a 90Hz display on the Motorola Edge with a higher refresh rate (in this case 90Hz), and an “auto” refresh rate mode. The display will have a single hole-punch cutout for the 25MP front-facing camera. In the top bezel of the phone, we can see a speaker. There’s also a speaker on the bottom, meaning the Motorola Edge has dual speakers for stereo sound. The SIM card tray is also at the top, and according to our source, this tray accepts a microSD card and nanoSIM card or dual nanoSIM cards.
Motorola Edge+ extra details
Motorola Edge is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 SoC, has 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 4,500mAh battery, and an under-display fingerprint. The phone will not support 5G connectivity.
