Motorola must be having many new phones to launch this year but perhaps we are not familiar with its exact plans. But what we can do meanwhile, is to rely on whatever comes our way. And, before the actual launch, only leaks can help to enlighten us. Coming from the very famous and reliable leakster Evan Blass, we are, at least, getting to know the name of one of such devices.
The name of the device is Motorola Edge+ and it appears the image shared by Evan is a screenshot taken from a banner or any kind of announcement. The leak doesn’t share anything else but we do expect to know more about the same in the coming days. However, in one of his replies, Evan has shared that the device is going to be Verizon Wireless-bound and it will feature the punch-hole display. Apart from this, nothing is known yet but we expect it to be a flagship phone.
Motorola puts the names of its smartphones after their standout features, take for instance the Motorola One Zoom and One Macro, they have been named in recognition of their zoom and macro shooter. So, it can be said that Edge+ has been named after the curved screen. This is clearly an asset of a flagship phone and we look forward to meeting it soon.
Meanwhile, a Motorola device with model number XT2055-2 has crossed the FCC certification. We can’t say if this is the same device that Evan has shared about, but let’s just proceed with the key details that the listing has to offer. The handset measures 175mm diagonally which translates to 6.88 inches. The phone supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n but with no support for dual-band Wi-Fi. The other notable feature is the 5,000mAH battery.
According to Nashvillechatterclass, there are more models that have been spotted at FCC - XT2043-4, XT2043-5, and XT2043-6. So, it is yet to be seen which smartphone would make its way first to the market.
