Motorola’s new flagship phone shown off from every angle in leaked renders

Motorola’s upcoming flagship phone, the Motorola Edge Plus, has been leaked again. But unlike previous leaks, the 3D renders are good enough to give us a really close look at Motorola’s next huge phone.

These latest leaks come from render-flinging leaker Evan Blass, and show the device from a number of angles — and in red and blue color variants. The waterfall-like display that gives the device its name is immediately obvious, and the screen appears to curve dramatically down the edge, toward the back of the device. Side views show the curve stretches almost to the middle of the phone’s thickness.

Unlike other phones with waterfall displays, the Motorola Edge Plus has not done away with physical buttons. A volume rocker and a power button are obvious in the rear views of the phone, so Motorola has probably not replaced physical buttons for capacitive or digital buttons. There’s a USB-C port at the bottom of the phone and — for the continued holdouts among us — a headphone jack at the top.

The front-facing selfie camera is contained within a hole-punch to the top-left of the display, with slim bezels at the top and bottom and no fingerprint scanner. It’s unclear whether Motorola will include an in-display fingerprint scanner, or use the circular Motorola logo on the back as a scanner, as it has in the past. There’s also a triple-lens camera suite on the back, and this vertically stacked module takes up a fair amount of space.

According to other leaks, we expect the camera suite to consist of a main 108-megapixel lens, a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. It’s also expected to be a specifications beast too, with the latest Snapdragon 865, 12GB of RAM, and a 5,000mAh battery.

When can we expect to see Motorola’s latest flagship launch? Well, we’re not exactly sure. The hot money was on Motorola launching a number of new phones in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress at the end of February. However, with MWC having been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, Motorola’s release schedule seems to have paused. We’ll bring you more details as they become available.

Motorola made one of the year’s best phones — but it’s not enough
The Motorola Edge Plus (2023) lying face-down on a table.

Motorola needs to see the Edge Plus (2023) as a new beginning, a jumping-off point for a revitalized brand, and not just another phone in an ever-growing list of disappointing models.

Why? It’s apparently too good not to signal a new start. We gave the Edge Plus (2023) a 9/10 score in our review, so it rivals the very best phones you can buy today. It’s clearly excellent, but this came as a total surprise — because Motorola is one of the most frustratingly inconsistent phone makers out there today.

I used the new Razr Plus — and it may be the flip phone of my dreams

Is it too early to say that the Motorola Razr Plus is my favorite phone of 2023? Yes — especially since I've only used the thing for a little over an hour. But after getting a hands-on look at Motorola's flagship foldable phone for this year, all I can think about is when I'll get to spend more time with it.

Today, Motorola announced two new folding phones: the Razr Plus and the Razr. These are the first folding phones Motorola is launching in the U.S. since the Razr 5G in 2020, and they could very well be two of the most important foldables we see in 2023. Here's a first look.

I finally found an Android phone that makes me want to ditch my iPhone
Someone holding the Motorola Edge Plus 2023.

The iPhone 14 Pro is an incredible smartphone. It's been my phone of choice for the last few months — and there's very little I dislike about it. The size is perfect, it's ridiculously fast, the display looks great ... I could go on and on. Simply put, it's a phone that's done everything I've asked of it, and it's given me very little reason to look for a new go-to smartphone.

But that's starting to change. I recently wrapped up my review of the Motorola Edge Plus (2023), and the more I sit back and reflect on my time with the Android phone, I've started to realize something. I barely touched my iPhone while reviewing the Edge Plus, and even now that the review is published, I still find myself grabbing for the Motorola handset over the iPhone.
The Edge Plus feels like it was made just for me
