Yesterday when @OnLeaks posted a new teaser for something related to “Back to the Future”, I was expecting some iPhone 12 action. Or maybe a Pixel 5? Instead we got an unexpected Motorola Edge Plus, with a waterfall screen. It’s the usual dream time of @OnLeaks and @Pricebaba supplying the leak.
Motorola Edge+ brings a totally new design direction compared to what Moto has given us so far. The back totally feels like an Xperia, a new fangled one, while the front feels like the Vivo NEX 3, with a waterfall screen. According to the source we see one of the smallest punch hole cameras ever. We also have the measurements for the device: 161.1 x 71.3 x 9.5 mm, with the waistline going to 11.5 mm with the camera bump. The device has a small slit for the earpiece and its diagonal is said to be around 6.67 inches.
Somehow it also keeps the audio jack at the top and it has an USB-C port at the bottom. Unlike other waterfall display devices, it doesn’t cut out the physical buttons. Expect a Full HD+ resolution, 90 Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 865 processor and 8 or 12 GB of RAM. There’s stock Android 10 on board and a gigantic 5170 mAh battery apparently, with fast charge. 5G is also part of the package and I’m surprised we don’t know more about the back camera.
It’s obviously a triple shooter, with one larger lens, so that’s probably a 64 MP or even 108 MP cam. To that we add a telephoto and ultra wide cam, as well as what appears to be a laser focus mechanism, or maybe an IR sensor, perhaps even a ToF one.
With a debut scheduled for Verizon in the near future, this may just be Motorola’s first successful flagship in a long while. Expect a stylus too, according to rumors.
