I remember how at one time Motorola had several successful models that were very fond of customers. I'm not even talking about the legendary Razr. Suffice it to recall, for example, the U6, E398 and, of course, the V7, which twisted to the side. If you have had such, you will definitely remember them. Then the time came for smartphones and many manufacturers took a step forward, but Motorola could not. On this, her story could end and the company could switch to the production of walkie-talkies and radio stations, but in the end it was more or less able to catch up with the market, releasing relatively good models. For the past three years, there have been no real flagships. His time has come.
This is how the rear wall of the novelty should look.
We already talked about the fact that the company has already started taking orders for the reissued Motorola Razr, which will go on sale in February this year. It was announced yesterday that the company has confirmed its participation in MWC 2020 and has scheduled a press event for February 23rd. Will it show a new flagship that we haven't seen for so long?
What will Motorola show at MWC 2020?
There is no exact list or names of models that will be discussed on this day, although Android Headlines has information that the new flagship, which everyone has been waiting for, will still be. Let me remind you that there has not been something really interesting from the American brand for three years.
The new smartphone Motorola is expected to be named Edge Plus. We don't know anything about it yet, but the name itself hints to us that its display will have a curvature like the latest Samsung models Huawei and OnePlus. It might even be a waterfall screen like the Huawei Mate 30 Pro or VIVO Nex 3.
As a true flagship, the smartphone will be equipped with the freshest processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, just like other “leader smartphones” this year. In addition, it will have 12 GB of RAM and at least 128 GB of storage.
That should be paired with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, which is also powered by the Galaxy S20 series and LG V60 ThinQ, as well as an impressive 12GB of RAM as standard. Memory remains a mystery at the moment, but at least 128GB seems quite likely. Nothing is known about the operating system yet, but it is most logical to assume that we are talking about Android 10.
If this smartphone is what they say it will be cool.
Most likely, at MWC 2020 will be shown not only Motorola Edge Plus, but also Motorola Moto G8. It will be a logical addition to the Moto G8 Plus, presented a few months ago. The main feature will be that the new product will be cheaper due to some of its features.
According to the leaks, it will have a 6.4-inch display with thin bezels and a very low resolution by modern standards – 1560 x 720 pixels. The smartphone will operate under Android 10, and a 4000 mAh battery will be responsible for its autonomy. This will be quite enough for work Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. The minimum version will have only 2 GB of RAM, and the more expensive 4 GB, which is also not very much. The minimum amount of built-in storage is 32 GB.
In addition, with a high degree of probability, we can say that the main camera will have a resolution of 16 megapixels with the addition of an 8-megapixel “super-wide” and a 2-megapixel “macro”.
Smartphone with a large battery
To finish the story about new products is the expected announcement at MWC 2020 Motorola Moto G8 Power. It will have a lot in common with the Moto G8 described above, but will acquire a key difference, which lies in its name.
That difference will be the 5000mAh battery, but there will be other differences as well. For example, a display with a resolution of 2300 by 1800 pixels. The diagonal of the display will be like that of the “little brother”, but there will be four camera modules. The resolution of three will be: 16 megapixels (main), 8 megapixels (wide-angle) and 2 megapixels (macro). The purpose of the fourth module is still unknown, but most likely it will be an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. Front camera resolution will be 25 megapixels.
Once this logo was familiar to everyone, now just to many.
The processor will be the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. There will be 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of permanent memory.
When will new ones start selling Motorola
There is no date for the start of sales of new smartphones yet, although it would be logical to assume that it will not be very far from the moment of the presentation. The company is most interested in this, since smartphones will have to compete not only with the Samsung Galaxy S20, but also with flagships of other manufacturers, which will be shown during the days of the mobile congress.
From this we can conclude that the start of sales will take place no later than mid-March 2020. At the same time, it is noted that in the US Motorola Edge Plus will be exclusively distributed by Verizon, as well as Razr, for which the operator is already taking orders.
The release of new products from Motorola is very pleasant. On the one hand, it looks like an old man's attempt to have fun at a youth party, but on the other, it is very pleasant. And it is always interesting to see how the once legendary brand will manifest itself against the background of sub-brands of modern manufacturers that are part of a large group. I think you understand what I mean. Therefore, we stock up on soft drinks and wait for MWC 2020, which, as usual, will have a lot of interesting things.
