Motorola announces pricing of its 5G Edge handset, bumps up the specs

Back in April, Motorola announced that it was reentering the flagship smartphone space with the Edge+. But alongside of the Edge+ was the Edge, a device that was still meant to be premium, but had its specs watered down a bit. The Edge+ was and is still married to Verizon, so if you want the device on another network, the Edge is your only choice.

Motorola today announced that the Edge is coming this summer for $699.99, a much lower price point than the Edge+ for $999.99. Moreover, it’s going to have 6GB RAM and 256GB of storage, rather than the 4GB and 128GB that was originally promised.

Other than that, the Motorola Edge packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 chipset, along with support for sub6 5G. Just like its flagship sibling, it comes with a 6.7-inch 21:9 90Hz OLED display that supports 10-bit color. As for the camera, it has a 64-megapixel (f/1.8) main sensor, an eight-megapixel 2x zoom lens, and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. That 64MP sensor will get you 16MP photos with quad pixel binning.

Motorola didn’t say specifically what day the handset will be available, but it should be over the next couple of months.
