- Motorola Edge+ is a flagship with Snapdragon 865 SoC, edge-to-edge display, 5G, and 5,000mAh battery
- The handset should launch in India once the coronavirus lockdown is lifted
Motorola Edge+ and Motorola Edge smartphones were unveiled last week at an international, online-only event. The former is the high-end model with flagship internals such as the Snapdragon 865 SoC, an edge-to-edge display, 5G connectivity, among others. Now, Prashanth Mani, the head of Motorola India, has confirmed the handset will be launching in India soon. The tweet also gives a run-down of the efforts that went behind the development of Motorola Edge+. Since India is under the coronavirus lockdown until May 3rd, the launch should happen once it’s lifted and e-commerce is functional. However, it isn’t clear if the vanilla Motorola Edge would launch in the country as well.
