After a long gap, Motorola finally entered the flagship smartphone market with the release of the Edge+ last week. It also launched the standard Edge but that's a mid-range smartphone. The flagship model comes with all the hardware specs, premium features, and design that you would expect from 2020 phone. And now, we know that the phone is also coming to the Eastern market.
Prashanth Mani, Country Head for Motorola India, tweeted that Motorola Edge+ is "coming soon" to India. He did not mention an exact date or a specific timeline for the release. It is safe to assume that a local launch event will take place once the nation-wide lockdown is lifted and smartphone sales get started in the country. This is also the reason behind Realme once again postponing the Narzo series launch.
