Motorola just added an interesting little twist to the online reveal event recipe. While we were all waiting for a video stream, detailing the new Motorola Edge and Edge+, what we got instead was a server failing to cope with the traffic and an unresponsive Motorola website.
Once it got back up we saw a couple of new product pages and a bunch of videos dedicated to its new flagships.
Anyway, we now have a few official videos to enjoy. Beyond your typical short and sweet, ad-style promo clips for the new phones, we also get some more detail on the design process, as well as some specific aspects of the Edge+.
This two-minute-long highlight reel seems to cover all the basics, so you can give that a quick watch if you are in a hurry. It basically goes through the key design aspects of the Edge+.
Beyond that, there are also a bunch of other topical short videos. In no particular order, we have clips covering the new Motorola curved display. A 6.7-inch, AMOLED, 90Hz panel, going by the “Endless Edge” marketing name.
Also, snippets with praise towards things like the 5,000 mAh battery. Which, apparently, according to Motorola, int the largest currently on a 5G phone.
The stereo speaker setup gets its own little slice of time underneath the spotlight. And we can’t fail to praise Motorola for the inclusion of the trusty-old 3.5mm jack on both Motorola Edge models.
But, understandably, the Edge+’s modern camera setup will probably be getting more attention. You are looking at a 108MP, f/1.8, OIS, quad-Bayer main snapper, alongside an 8MP, OIS telephoto and a 16MP ultrawide. The vanilla Motorola Edge does come with some downgrades in this department, substituting a 64MP main camera.
You can get more details on that and other changes, like the Snapdragon 756G processor swap in our announcement news for the pair.
This is the phone I wanted 3 or 4 years ago, when so many other companies were already doing edgeless displays. I currently have a Moto Z4, but I'd gladly trade that in for the vanilla Edge. Unless Motorola does something new with moto mods, I think ...
I have been waiting for this device for months brand new Motorola flagship with the SD865 In tow. As soon as my buddies Verizon store gets the demos in he's going to call me up when you go in the store for the day and see what I can do to unlock it ...
Perfect except back cover should be curve. Whete is moto x? Bring back that monster back
