Design and Build Quality

Motorola Edge on the Left

Design is very similar to the Edge+, On the Front, we have a Punch-Hole Display, and it has an edge Display, or you can say  Endless Edge display as said by Motorola, I am pretty sure those edges will lead a great number of accident touches.
But the Build Quality is different
The Back is made of plastic and the front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5

Display

Motorola Edge and Edge+ have the same display a 6.7-inch OLED Display with a native resolution of
1080X2340 pixels, an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, Pixel Density of 385 PPI, a Screen to Body Ratio of ~93%, it has HDR10+ support and a 90Hz Refresh Rate display, Its a curved edge display, and the curve is huge, it will surely lead a great number of accidental touches.

Performance

Motorola Edge - Hands-on, Upper Mid-Range Specs at Flagship Level Pricing 12

The Motorola Edge is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, it is an octa-core chipset with 1×2.4 GHz Kryo 475 Prime & 1×2.2 GHz Kryo 475 Gold & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 475 Silver cores and is coupled with Adreno 620 GPU.
Honestly speaking this SoC, is very powerful, the best among the snapdragon 700 series as of now, and in terms of benchmarks is ahead of the Mediatek’s Helio G90T, but is behind the Samsung Exynos 980 and Mediatek’s Dimensity 1000L.

It would have been a much better choice if Motorola went with the Mediatek and used their Dimneity 1000L, in this smartphone.

Memory and Storage

Motorola Edge has two Memory options, 4 and 6 GB, and it has one storage option 128GB UFS 2.1 storage.
It would have been better if it had UFS 3.0 storage.
But as these are initial Informations it may change later on.
