A new Motorola phone just leaked, and it could beat the Galaxy S24 Ultra

Motorola is said to be readying a new flagship in the Edge series, but it seems leaks will leave no surprises for the official reveal. In addition to a sneak peek at its design, leaked specifications suggest it could go tow-to-tow with Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra.

The folks over at Android Headlines have leaked what looks like marketing renders of the upcoming Motorola Edge 50 Pro, a device that will likely arrive as Motorola Edge Plus (2024) in the U.S. market.

If the rumored product renders are anything to go by, Motorola is not willing to let go of its signature design element. Like the past two generations of high-end phones in the Edge family, the yet-to-be-announced entrant will also embrace a sleek side profile with a dramatically curved display.

It looks like 2024 will be a year of more design experiments for Motorola. The purple shade appears to rock a faux leather surface finish, apparently inspired by the treatment Motorola has lately given to some of its foldable phones. Then we have the black variant, which seemingly borrows some inspiration from the sandstone finish of older OnePlus phones.

Finally, we have a white shade paired with a platinum-esque metallic side frame. We’re not sure if it’s a fabric-inspired finish or something inspired by mineral derivates, as was the case with the excellent OnePlus 11 Marble Odyssey Edition. I quite like the minimalist camera island at the back, which blends neatly with the rest of the rear panel. We’ve recently seen a similar look on the Oppo Find X5 in a stunning pearly white colorway.

The leak mentions a 6.7-inch OLED display with a 165Hz refresh rate, one of the highest you will find on any smartphone out there, gaming or otherwise. Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip runs the show inside, paired with up to 12GB of RAM, while a 50-megapixel primary sensor headlines the triple camera array at the back.

Another area where the Motorola Edge Plus (2024) shines is the charging technology. The 4,500mAh battery fitted inside that svelte chassis reportedly supports 125W wired fast charging, potentially making it the fastest-charging phone on U.S. soil. To put that into perspective, those figures are roughly three to four times higher than those of Samsung and Apple’s current-gen flagship phones.

Moreover, the upcoming phone is said to support 50W wireless charging, which is once again faster than what Apple and Samsung have managed to touch so far with wires. It seems Motorola wants to take the fast-charging crown from OnePlus, which currently allows 100W charging for the OnePlus 12.

The Motorola Edge Plus (2024) is reportedly launching on April 3 in China, but there is no official clarity on a stateside market release. The Lenovo-owned company has typically slapped a competitive price tag on its Edge series phones, and it would be interesting to see if the upcoming Motorola entrant carries over that legacy. Last year’s Motorola Edge Plus (2023) was a smashing success, so we’re eager to see how its successor turns out.

5 phones you should buy instead of the Google Pixel 8 Pro
Someone holding the Bay blue Google Pixel 8 Pro.

Is the Google Pixel 8 Pro an excellent smartphone? Absolutely! It's quite possibly the best smartphone Google has ever made, and we weren't shy about heaping praise on it in our Google Pixel 8 Pro review. While its battery life isn't anything to write home about, and the temperature sensor is a bit of a whiff, the sheer quality of the camera, gorgeous design, strong specs, and promise of seven years of updates mean it's not a phone to miss out on.

But while the Pixel 8 Pro is a very strong smartphone, it's far from the only choice. In fact, if you're looking at the Pixel 8 Pro right now, there are five other smartphones you should consider buying instead of Google's most expensive flagship.

Motorola’s two new budget phones shouldn’t look this good

While not as flashy as flagship phone announcements, it's always worth keeping an eye on new phones in the budget range being launched. Motorola was the long-time king of this particular area but was largely unseated by particularly strong efforts from manufacturers like Samsung and OnePlus into the budget market.

So, it might no longer be the sole king, but that doesn't mean it's throwing in the towel. Far from it, in fact. Motorola has just announced two new smartphones in the sub-$300 bracket: the Moto G Power 5G (2024) and the Moto G 5G (2024). Here's everything you need to know.

The iPhone 16’s huge redesign has leaked. Here’s what’s new

Apple fans might be in for a lukewarm surprise when Apple releases its next wave of iPhones this fall season. Over the past few weeks, numerous outlets — including 91 Mobiles and MacRumors – and independent insiders have shared alleged CAD-based renders of the entire iPhone 16 portfolio.

In 2024, it seems Apple will shower more love on the entry-point models, bestowing them with a slight design refinement on the rear shell. Leaks suggest the camera island on the iPhone 16—and likely its Plus variant as well—will get a pill-shaped makeover. Other changes are reported for the 16 Pro and Pro Max models. There's a lot to cover, so let's dig in.

On the current-generation iPhone 15 duo, we get diagonally arranged camera lenses positioned atop a square-ish glass bump. In the upcoming versions, Apple is reportedly replacing it with a vertical pill-like camera island, mirroring the look we first saw on the iPhone X.
