The latest Motorola Edge and Edge+ phones have been awaited by users across the world for a long time now. In fact, earlier in February, we have already seen images of a new Motorola smartphone that featured a ‘waterfall display’. The new feature for the brand was also accompanied by 5G support on the device. The brand also gave us a glimpse into the Motorola Edge+ smartphone a few days later. And now, it has officially announced that it will launch one of these flagship smartphones.
The launch event will be online-only with the Coronavirus pandemic having taken over the world. The event is scheduled for April 22 at 11:00 AM CT. A teaser for the phone shared by Motorola on Twitter shows a curvy waterfall display. However, this isn’t enough to gauge whether the soon-to-be-launched device will be the Motorola Edge or Edge+, since both have the new display.

According to multiple reports, the Moto Edge will be an upper mid-range phone sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 SoC. The higher-end Motorola Edge+ will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and likely, other flagship-level features as well.
All the features we expect
The Motorola Edge series will possibly flaunt a 6.67-inch display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The phones are expected to feature a 90Hz refresh rate. Both devices will feature a single front camera, housed in a punch-hole cutout in the top-left. The Motorola Edge+ could feature up to 12GB RAM and a 5,000mAh battery. There will also be Android 10 and 5G support.
According to an exclusive report from XDA Developers, the Edge series will also feature triple-camera setups on the back. The Motorola Edge could have a 64-megapixel main camera, a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. The main 64-megapixel image sensors will use 4-in-1 pixel binning to produce 16-megapixel images by default. The phone could also sport an in-display fingerprint scanner.
