Pricebaba’s report said the 90Hz display will be between 6.5 and 6.8in and the renders look like a hybrid of the OnePlus 7 Pro and recent Samsung phones with so-called ‘waterfall’ displays. Also the phone will apparently have triple cameras, a headphone jack and a particularly large 5,170mAh battery. The Snapdragon 865 should ensure 5G connectivity, while RAM is set at 8GB or 12GB depending on the model.
OnLeaks has a pretty good track record for phone leaks even if he isn’t as revered or on the money as EvLeaks, so this should be a legit tip.
Lenovo-owned Motorola’s flagship phone strategy has been a bit all over the place, and the company also had a bit of a PR nightmare on its hands after the recent big-money relaunch of the Razr turned out some review units that were poorly constructed and broke.
While its budget G series and mid-range line up of solid phones like the Motorola One Action have kept Motorola in our good books, it looks like the Moto Mods will not make a return on the Edge Plus. Mods were an interesting idea that started with 2016’s Moto Z, but it seems as though Lenovo has decided to retire the Z line in favour of a glass slab with the same specs as every other phone this year.
If it can compete by undercutting the price of the likes of Samsung and Oppo, then there could be a place in the market for the Edge Plus. If these leaks are accurate, we would expect an announcement within the next couple of months.
