Motorola Edge+ will launch in India in the coming weeks and has its eyes set on two recently launched phones, the OnePlus 8 series and Apple iPhone SE 2020. The Indian launch of the flagship smartphone by Lenovo-backed Motorola could be held sometime after the nation-wide lockdown eases or when e-commerce companies are allowed to deliver smartphones and laptops to customers. Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus in India and various parts of the world, the smartphone industry has been affected by manufacturing shutdowns that’s led to delayed launches and availability of products.
Motorola Edge+ alongside the Edge was unveiled last week on April 22 after many leaks and rumours. The phones were previously set to be announced during the MWC 2020, but the event fell victim to the COVID-19 crisis.
Prashant Mani, Country Head of Motorola India tweeted out an official video of the Motorola Edge+, stating the phone will eventually be making it’s way to the country very soon. The video highlights the key specifications of the phone such as 5G support, Snapdragon 865 chip, 108MP camera and more. We can expect Motorola to launch the Edge+ in India after e-commerce companies are allowed to accept orders for mobile phones.
Motorola Edge+ has a glass-metal design and features a 6.7-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution display on an OLED panel. The display has a punch-hole cutout on the front that gives it a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The screen has a 90Hz refresh rate and is certified for HDR10+ playback.
It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset with 5G support and an octa-core CPU. This is paired with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage and there doesn’t seem to be another available variant.
The Edge+ has a triple camera setup on the back followed by TOF 3D depth sensor and dual-tone LED flash. The primary camera uses a 108MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS support, an 8MP secondary telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and OIS followed by a 16MP ultra-wide-angle camera. The rear camera setup can record in 6K UHD at 30fps and 4K UHD at upto 60fps.
On the front, housed within the notch cutout is a 25MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture.
The phone has stereo speakers, Wi-Fi 6 modem and Type-C port for charging. The battery is rated at 5,000mAh and supports 18W fast charging and 15W fast wireless charging. It comes in two colours-- Smokey Sangria and Thunder Grey and is priced at $999 (~Rs 76,000) in the US.
