To stand apart in the market, we wanted to build a family of new devices that nails everything consumers care about most. The result is a state-of-the-art smartphone that delivers advanced technology in every category that matters, including powerhouse 5G performance, a dynamic and immersive display, a photography experience like no other, audio that’s completely unmatched, and the largest battery of any 5G phone on the market. Simply put, motorola edge+ is the flagship phone you’ve been waiting for.
motorola edge+ was built for speed, power, and the ultimate 5G performance. We started with the most advanced mobile platform on the market. Qualcomm’s SnapdragonTM 865 Mobile Platform provides the fastest performance1, 25% faster than previous generations, and nearly instant responsiveness for browsing, watching videos, or playing games. 12 GB of Micron DDR5 memory keeps your device running smoothly with 30% increased max bandwidth and lower battery drain, so you can take full advantage of the experiences enabled by 5G.2 An innovative 5G antenna array connects you with both mmWave and sub-6GHz frequencies for global 5G compatibility and future speeds over 4 Gbps.3 And connect to Wi-Fi 6, the new blazing-fast standard for Wi-Fi, for even outstanding internet speeds while using less power.4
With motorola edge+, we are bending the display like never before. Our brand new Endless Edge display wraps nearly 90-degrees around both sides of the device and stretches 6.7 inches to create an immersive viewing experience. Perfect for entertainment, the cinematic 21:9 screen ratio is the default aspect for major films and tv shows. The display is gorgeous, capable of showing a billion shades of color and offering incredibly dynamic picture quality with HDR10+. With a 90Hz screen refresh rate that you’ll love, the screen boasts exceptionally smooth movement so every scroll and swipe looks amazing.
The Endless Edge display isn’t just beautiful, it’s functional too. The curved screen and narrow width on the motorola edge+ provide the optimal proportions for one-handed use and navigation, making it easy to reach across the device without fumbling. Edge Touch, part of our new My UX suite of software features, allows you to customize new ways to interact with your device. Just swipe up or down on the edge to pull down notifications or switch apps. The display edges also come in handy when your phone isn’t in your hand, lighting up to show battery charging status, incoming calls, alarms, and notifications from across the room. In the new Moto Game time, gamers can turn the phone sideways and use two additional, customizable buttons on the top edge of the screen for console-like four finger gameplay.
Mobile entertainment is on the rise, with mobile video consumption rising by 100% year over year.5 Our consumer research tells us that the majority of the time, consumers are using their phone’s loud speakers when watching their favorite content. motorola edge+ has the loudest, most powerful stereo speakers in a smartphone ever, plus precision tuning for professional-quality sonic performance and deeper, fuller sound.6 The audio tuning technology comes from Waves, recipient of a Technical GRAMMY® Award, to make your music, videos, and phone calls sound louder and clearer than ever. Born from recording studios and used by sound engineers, music, film & TV producers and broadcasters, Waves delivers professional-quality sonic performance on smartphone speakers in a way that’s never been done before.
We’ve refined the camera system in motorola edge+ so it gets as close to professional DSLR photo and video quality as possible. The 108 MP sensor main camera is the highest resolution ever included in a smartphone, and is physically nearly three times larger than the 12MP sensors used on predecessor flagship smartphones. With Quad Pixel technology, this sensor has 4x the light sensitivity to capture incredibly clear and crisp photos in all lighting conditions. The versatile triple camera system gives you a lens for every shot. Capture more from far away with high-res optical zoom on the 8MP telephoto lens, snap more of the scene with our 16MP ultra-wide angle lens, or get up close and personal with Macro Vision.
Content creators will love the video capabilities on the motorola edge+, which allows you to record in 6K for incredible high-res videos. The industry’s most advanced video stabilization compensates for motion blur, changing focus, and crooked horizons, and even combines OIS and EIS for better low light video quality. The new video snapshot feature even lets you pull out a high res 20 MP photo while shooting video. The camera system has intuitive software features like video portrait mode, which brings a beautiful blur effect to your videos to turn the focus to your subject. Plus, dual OIS on the main and telephoto cameras compensates for unwanted camera movement so clarity and detail shine through no matter what.
All this top tier performance and 5G power isn’t worth much if you’re constantly running out of battery. We packed a 5000 mAh battery into this device, the largest battery of any 5G phone on the market, to last you two full days of use.7 For added convenience, motorola edge+ features TurboPowerTM wired charging and wireless charging, plus you can share power with other devices in a snap with wireless power sharing.8
We’re committed to bringing intuitive software experiences to our consumers. There are no clunky software skins, no duplicate apps – just near-stock Android 10. We choose to build upon Android with unique ways to enhance customers’ mobile experience. That’s why with motorola edge+ we’re introducing My UX, allowing users to customize their experience to be even more intuitive and personal, so it works the way they want. And it’s all in one place, the Moto app!
My UX includes all the great moto experiences customers have come to know and love, from turning on the flashlight with a simple chop gesture to launching the camera with the twist of a wrist. And with motorola edge+, in addition to the new edge display interactions, My UX let’s users take music, videos and games to the next level with custom settings and advanced controls. Users can even create their own device themes by choosing from unique fonts, colors, icon shapes, and fingerprint sensor animations, so their phone is one in a million. My UX truly puts users in control of their mobile experience.
