Motorola is making a comeback in the flagship segment after a couple of years with the Motorola Edge+ for Verizon, but that’s not the only high-end phone with 5G from the brand that is launching this year. In fact, there is also an upper mid-range device with 5G that is launching soon & today, the details about these two 5G phones from Motorola were shared by XDA Developers.
The main USP of these two upcoming phones is the “Waterfall Display,” something that we have seen on phones from brands like Huawei, Vivo, etc. While the design is impressive, a waterfall display isn’t that practical.
The two phones are codenamed “racer 5G” and “burton.” A few live images of the “racer 5G” were also shared by XDA that reveal the front design where the phone has a punch-hole on the top left & an 80% Waterfall Display. Since it isn’t 100% waterfall display (that is, a 90-degree curve), there is space to add volume rockers on the right side, as seen in the live images.
Both the Motorola 5G phones, i.e., “racer 5G” & “burton,” feature a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The phone with codename “burton” features Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SOC & is most likely coming as the Motorola Edge+. It has 12GB RAM & there is a massive 5,170mAh battery.
Talking about the “racer 5G”, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 or 765G SOC, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, a 4,660mAh battery & a primary 48 Megapixel rear camera.
It is also expected that these two smartphones will launch under the Motorola One series outside Verizon since “Motorola One 5G 2020” & “Motorola One 2020” are used as the names to refer to “racer 5G” & “burton” respectively.
With these new devices, some new software features will also be announced. One is the “Moto Edge Assistant,” which is an app that can be used to customize the tap actions on the curved edges of the phone. Using this, a user can customize the edge area to prevent unintentional touches. Then there is a new “Moto GameTime” app that is similar to the “Game Mode” that a lot of smartphone companies offer. This helps to improve the overall gaming experience by offering various features like blocking notifications, lock brightness level, etc.
Finally, there is a “Moto Audio” app that adjusts the audio profile.
Well, Motorola is hosting an event at the MWC, so let’s hope to see these phones launching at the event.
