Motorola Edge Plus has gone official in India with a price tag of Rs 74,999 and while this wasn’t unexpected given that it packs flagship-grade hardware, many, including us, assumed that the Edge Plus will likely go up against the likes of Xiaomi Mi 10 5G which launched recently for Rs 49,999 bearing a similar set of internals. 

At its asking price, the Motorola Edge Plus goes up against the likes of Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus and Apple iPhone 11. The phone was announced alongside a regular Motorola Edge on April 22. Let’s take a brief look at the specifications, pricing and availability of the Motorola Edge Plus.

Motorola Edge Plus pricing, launch offers and availability

Motorola Edge Plus will be up for pre-orders starting May 19 on Flipkart and leading offline stores across India. There’s just one variant of the phone with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage and is priced at Rs 74,999. It is expected to go on sale from May 26 and comes in two colours– Smokey Sangria and Thunder Grey.

As part of the launch offer, Motorola is offering an instant discount of Rs 7,500 to ICICI bank credit card holders and also on EMI transactions.

Motorola Edge Plus specifications

Motorola Edge Plus features a 6.7-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution display that uses an AMOLED panel with a punch-hole cutout on top for the selfie camera. The screen has a high 90Hz refresh rate and is certified for HDR10+ playback.

It is powered by a 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 rear camera setup can record in 6K UHD at 30fps and 4K UHD at up to 60fps. On the front, housed within the notch cutout is a 25MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture.
