Just as everyone wants a mid-range

Motorola hasn't had a true flagship on the market since its Moto Z line was downgraded to mid-range status, but now has released its Motorola Edge and Edge+ which should put it in the top league again.

The Motorola Edge+ is the true flagship of the two, offering a Snapdragon 865 processor, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 6.7-inch FHD AMOLED display that has a "waterfall" curve on either side, a hole-punch containing the 24MP selfie shooter, and a 90Hz refresh rate.

The Motorola Edge+ features wireless charging, 18W wired charging, and a triple camera system. There's a 108MP sensor to headline that array, but also a 16MP ultrawide shooter and 8MP telephoto lens. There's also a 5,000 mAh battery to ensure plenty of power. It even offers reverse wireless charging.

The regular Motorola Edge has the same display and overall design but uses a Snapdragon 765 to keep 5G and good performance. It's paired with Android 10 and either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage on all models. There's also a 64MP camera backed up by the same 16MP ultrawide and 8MP telephoto shooters.

What the Edge lacks is wireless charging, for its 4,500 mAh battery. The best part of both phones is that they have headphone jacks.

Both the Edge and Edge+ also feature 5G support (only sub-6 for the Edge), offer red or black colors, and use their curved displays for a few neat software tricks. Both are also promised at least one major Android upgrade, too.

As for pricing, the Motorola Edge+ will be available exclusively via Verizon for $1,000. The price of the regular Edge hasn't been announced yet, but it should be cheaper and more broadly available.
