So it's safe to say Motorola has not dabbled with a flagship phone in the past two years, and things have changed drastically in the smartphone space in that time, but on paper at least the Motorola Edge Plus sounds like it might be able to compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S20. Leaks have revealed the phone is called the Edge +.

Mishaal Rahman from XDA-Developers shared the alleged marketing logo for the Motorola Edge+ smartphone in a tweet.

The phone will apparently be powered by a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with up to 12GB of RAM.

After focusing nearly entirely on fairly conventional budget-friendly mid-rangers arguably delivering great value for its fans' money these past few years, Motorola started thinking outside the box again, technically beating Samsung to the foldable flip phone punch.

According to Rahman, the Motorola Edge Plus features a 6.67-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080) resolution screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. It should also have fast charging support and one that is much faster than the 15W TurboPower that it now bundles with its phones.

The Motorola Edge+ will be available via Verizon in the United States and also be launched globally.

Apart from the original Motorola One, which was an instantly forgettable mid-end model with humble specifications and an uninspiring design, every later member of this family carried a unique name highlighting a key selling point right off the bat.

The Motorola One Mid will have a Snapdragon 675 processor just like the Motorola One Hyper that launched in December 2019. The first one being the Motorola One Mid, which is said to feature a 6.53-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,340 pixels) display at the front, most likely an LCD panel, considering this is a mid-range device. The RAM and storage capacity are not known but the battery capacity is stated as 4000mAh.

All in all, you can definitely expect the Motorola Edge+ to excel in terms of both raw power and autonomy between charges, but it remains to be seen how its dramatically curved ("80% waterfall") design will be received if it pans out. Additionally, the device will reportedly be rocking the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC and 4,000mAh battery, under the hood. That is all that is known about the phone at the moment.
