It has been a while since we last saw Motorola release a flagship device. The Motorola Razr did create a stir in the smartphone market earlier this year but at its best, it was purchasable proof of concept. This year looks to be the year Motorola goes all-in in the high-end market segment. Motorola will be launching the new Edge series later this month and the first under the premium series will be Motorola Edge. Let’s check what we know about the device so far.
Motorola Edge Rumors Round-up
As it stands, Motorola Edge won’t be the most affordable device under the new Edge series. The Edge series will mark a comeback for Motorola in the premium smartphone market segment.
Design and Display
The highlight of the device so far is its design. Motorola Edge will sport a waterfall display with the diagonal length of the screen estimated to be around 6.67-inch. To achieve the waterfall effect, the AMOLED panel has been heavily curved at both the edges. The display supports up to 90Hz refresh rate. Users can manually choose between standard 60Hz and 90Hz or let the device automatically adjust to the appropriate refresh rate based on the contents being displayed. The panel features a tiny circular punch-hole display at the top left corner of the screen which houses the front camera.
On the back, the linear camera bump looks quite thick. It houses the triple camera setup. Since the fingerprint sensor is integrated under the display, there is nothing on the back panel except the Motorola logo.

Performance and Memory
Motorola Edge will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G SoC which comes with an integrated 5G modem. SD 765G’s popularity is now on the rise since smartphone brands are working on affordable 5G phones. The chipset will be paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Combine that with Qualcomm’s Elite gaming features and the 5G connectivity, it looks to be a performance beast.
The triple camera setup comes with a 64MP sensor as the primary camera. The 64MP output will be achieved using pixel binning techniques. It will be accompanied by a 16MP wide-angle camera and an 8MP telephoto lens. The device will also come with laser autofocus and dual-LED. On the front, Motorola has included a 25MP selfie camera.

Battery and Others
The device will come with a massive 4,500mAh battery. For a battery of such capacity, we expect support for fast charging of some kind. It will also equip a 3.5mm headphone jack. The company has managed to fit in dual stereo speakers in the device too.
