2020 is going to be a special year for Motorola fans as the company is set to release its first Android flagship in many years. It is the Motorola Edge+ that has already surfaced in a couple of leaks and rumors. OnLeaks, a well-known tipster, has now collaborated with online publication Pricebaba to share high-quality Motorola Edge+ renders.
These renders show that the Motorola Edge+ will be sporting a waterfall punch-hole display panel. A waterfall display is the one that spread across the edges on both the left and right sides. The top and bottom parts appear to be flat as compared to the other two sides that give it a design similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. It has only a single tiny punch-hole which means there will only be a single front camera.
The display size is said to be anywhere between 6.5-inches and 6.8-inches. The resolution has not been mentioned but the presence of an in-display fingerprint scanner is confirmed. The phone has a triple camera setup on the back panel which is aligned vertically. There is a Motorola logo in the center along with an LED ring. It is speculated that the ring may be used as a notification reminder. The renders also give the impression that it has a metal and glass back panel as it is shown to be reflective.
Other things that are noticeable in Motorola Edge+ renders include USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, SIM card tray slot, noise-cancellation mic, and speaker grill. The power button and volume rockers are available on the right side of the phone.
As per previous rumors, The Motorola Edge+ should have a 6.67-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) curved display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The choice of processor will be Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 along with 5G connectivity support. There are no details about the cameras, RAM and storage configuration, and battery capacity yet.
