Motorola used to be a popular name in the phone industry. When talking about clamshell phones or flip phones, the Motorola Razr from 2005 always comes to mind. Although when smartphones took over, the company’s name was slowly moved down in the rankings. They did come out with a few handsets including the updated Razr but it wasn’t enough to put them back on the radar of many.
Now they’re giving it one more shot and are currently offering two flagship models under the new Edge series. It promises flagship-level specs with an updated design.
The Motorola Edge is the variant with more held back specs but shares key features with its pricier sibling. It has a 6.7-inch Full HD+ OLED display and carries a 90Hz refresh rate with curved edges.
For its array of cameras, there’s a 25-megapixel sensor up front for selfies while a triple rear camera setup handles most of the imaging. This consists of a 64-megapixel main shooter, 16-megapixel ultra-wide with macro, and 8-megapixel telephoto with 3x optical zoom and Optical Image Stabilization.
Meanwhile, a Snapdragon 765G CPU runs the show with 6GB of RAM for the global market and 4GB RAM for US buyers. Internal storage is at 128GB which is expandable. A 4500mAh battery gives power to the device and is capable of 18W of wired charging.
As for the top variant Edge+, it touts the same 6.7-inch OLED display with 90Hz refresh rate but this time features HRD10+ for better dynamic range in images.
The front camera is similar but the main shooter for the rear captures higher resolution photos with its 108-megapixel main camera. A 16-megapixel ultra-wide with macro is also here as well as an 8-megapixel telephoto with 3x optical zoom and OIS. Additionally, it has ToF camera for measuring distance in different applications.
Internally, a more powerful Snapdragon 865 CPU is at its core and comes with a larger 12GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Its battery is rated at 5000mAh and supports 15W wireless and 5W reverse wireless charging in addition to its 18W wired charging.
Both phones feature the company’s new ‘Endless Edge’ display style, are dual-SIM, and capable of 5G connectivity. They also have an in-display fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers, and utilize USB-C.
Running on Android 10, these phones are priced at EUR 599 (approx. PhP 33K/US$ 648) and EUR 1,199 (approx. PhP 66K/US$ 1.3K) for both the Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge+, respectively.
