Motorola Edge+ (2023) is now official for $799

The US gets a new flagship from Motorola The Motorola Edge+ (2023) is coming soon with the company’s best update promise yet, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and a very reasonable $799.

Available from May 9, Motorola Edge+ (2023) is the US version of Motorola Edge 40 Pro. Like this device, it packs a flagship set of specs, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. On top of that, you’ll find 8GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage.

The device has a 6.7-inch pOLED display with a resolution of 1080p but with a refresh rate of 165Hz. The panel also supports HDR and is topped with Gorilla Glass Victus (which is also used on the back). True to its name, Edge+ has curved glass not only along the side but on all four sides of the screen.

It’s exactly the look, though I’ve personally noticed it’s a bit confusing to look at, depending on the angle it can look very different.

The entire phone is IP68 water and dust resistant, with a 5100mAh battery inside that supports 68W wired charging, 15W wireless charging, and 5W reverse wireless charging. You’ll also find NFC—which is never a guarantee on Motorola phones—and a pretty solid camera system. There’s a 50MP primary camera, a 50MP ultrawide camera that also works for macro shots, and a 12MP telephoto camera with a 2x ratio. Finally, the selfie camera clocks in at 60MP.

Out of the box, the Motorola Edge+ (2023) runs on top of Android 13 with the usual light Motorola features and features, but what’s interesting here is the software stickiness. The company says Edge+ will get three major Android OS updates and four years of security updates. To quote the Motorola exec, these updates will arrive “at any time,” but this is definitely a step forward for the company.

Motorola Edge+ (2023) first launches on Boost Mobile on May 9 and later comes to both Spectrum Mobile and Consumer Cellular. From there, the device will sell unlocked via, Best Buy, and Amazon for $799 starting May 25th (pre-orders open May 19th).
