The name Motorola evokes more associations thanmemories of the history of mobile phones stretch further into the past, but here's a long time ago in the associative series that were not there were flagship devices. Today's announcement filled this gap. The flagship has appeared. And as it happened, not alone, but with a younger relative. Motorola edge and Motorola edge plus models are presented, which are at the forefront of progress. The slogan of the announcement suggests saying goodbye to “the same old” and greeting “daring new”.

Name the combination of curved on the sides of the screenthe word “Edge” in the title “new” was indeed a daring decision. Although, of course, whoever the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge remembers there ... Thanks, at least the curved sections of the screen have some practical meaning: swipe management is offered - this way you can get quick access to notifications, etc.

Motorola edge and Motorola edge plus it's withouthalf a minute flagship and super flagship respectively. The devices have the same screen - recognizable due to atypical geometry - it is bent at right angles, a 6.7-inch OLED with a resolution of full HD + and a refresh rate of 90 Hz with a built-in fingerprint scanner and a hole for a selfie camera in the upper left corner. The rest of the Motorola edge bitten off on trifles. And the chipsets are different.

For Motorola Edge put together a set of 64 MP, ableadd four pixels in order to get enlarged to 1.6 microns, an ultra wide angle (117 °), it is also a 16 MP macro and a 8 MP telephoto camera. There is a fourth - but he is not a real musketeer, but a ToF-sensor, which is also not out of place. The front camera with a resolution of 25 MP is also capable of 4-in-1 focus, which allows it to shoot well at night.

Motorola Edge + received a leading camera108 megapixel with optical stabilization.

Concluding the list of what Motorola Edge is offended by, we mention the barometer. Both models support NFC.

Motorola Edge + and Motorola chassis designEdge used aluminum 6000 and Gorilla Glass 5 glass, but there are no regrets for the top model of protective glass on both sides, the Motorola Edge is plastic at the back. Protection against water and dust rated - IP52.

Well, the most interesting is the price. Senior - Motorola Edge + will be released in the United States on May 14 and will cost $ 999.99 (₽77000). In Europe and other markets they are also waiting for him - but how much has not yet been specified

Motorola Edge so far has only a European price tag - € 699 (₽58500, $ 759). Start of sales - in Italy, in May.
