Last year, Motorola announced the Edge+, a Snapdragon 865-powered flagship with a curved display and a 108MP primary rear camera. The phone which launched with Android 10 out of the box is now receiving an Android 11
The update is being rolled out by Verizon and it not only brings all the new features that Android 11 has to offer such as Chat Bubbles, a native screen recorder, revamped media controls, device controls, and new permission settings; the update also brings March 2021’s security patch and fixes some known bugs.
This update is one of two major OS upgrades Motorola has promised the phone will get. It had originally planned to provide only one OS upgrade but after much criticism, it announced it will provide “at least two Android OS upgrades”. Knowing Motorola, we are sure it won’t go past two, and don’t expect the Android 12 update to arrive this year.
The Motorola Edge+ has a 6.7-inch 2340 x 1080 display with a punch hole at the top left corner for a 25MP front-facing camera. Paired with the Snapdragon 865 processor is 12GB of RAM and 256GB of non-expandable storage.
Its 108MP rear camera comes along with an 8MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and OIS, a 16MP AF ultrawide angle camera, and a ToF 3D camera for capturing depth. The phone can record in both 4K and 6K at 30fps.
Motorola ships the phone with a massive 5000mAh battery and it has support for 18W fast wired charging, 15W fast wireless charging, and 5W reverse wireless charging. It also has NFC, Bluetooth 5.1, an audio jack, and stereo speakers.
The phone which launched for $999 is now available for $799.99 on the Motorola US site.
