Three years after releasing its last flagship smartphone – the Moto Z2 Force – to little fanfare, Motorola has today officially announced plans to hold a ‘Motorola Flagship Launch E-vent’ on Wednesday, April 22.
A Motorola Flagship Launch E-vent
The announcement is happening two months later than originally scheduled – Motorola was meant to detail its return at MWC 2020 in February – but should still focus entirely on the highly anticipated Motorola Edge
and Motorola Edge+
smartphones as first intended.
As indicated by their names and teased by Motorola itself today, both of these devices are going to feature curved-edge displays. But unlike recent Samsung or OnePlus smartphones, the Chicago-based company has seemingly opted for a more drastic yet futuristic take on the concept by adopting a waterfall display implementation.
Rumors suggest both screens measure in at 6.7-inches and feature punch-hole technology for the selfie camera. That should be combined with a vertical camera setup on the rear that houses four sensors in the case of the Edge+ and three on the standard Motorola Edge model.
Leaked information points towards the presence of 5G network support on both smartphones too, although they won't make use of the same chipset. The Motorola Edge is expected to rely on the Snapdragon 765 whereas the Edge+ should benefit from the more powerful Snapdragon 865 found inside most other 2020 flagships.
