Earlier this year, Motorola announced the Edge+ (2023). Usually when companies announce their “plus”, “pro”, or “ultra” phones, there is usually a more affordable alternative accompanying it, but this time there wasn’t.
For those who feel like the Edge+ is a bit out of their price range, then you might be pleased to learn that Motorola has finally unveiled its more affordable sibling – the Motorola Edge (2023). We did hear rumors and see leaked renders back in August, so it looks like the device has been announced in an official capacity.
The phone features a vegan leather back that is soft and easy to grip which is then encased in a sandblasted aluminum frame. It features IP68 certification in dust and water resistance, and measures 7.64mm thin, making it the thinnest phone in its class.
The Edge (2023) also comes with a 6.6-inch display with a 144Hz refresh rate, and under the hood, a MediaTek Dimensity 7030 chipset can be found along with 8GB of RAM. There will also be 256GB of storage and for its cameras, there is a 50MP main shooter with a wide f/1.4 aperture accompanied by a 13MP ultrawide. The Edge will also be packing a 4,400mAh battery that supports Motorola’s 68W TurboPower charging, allowing it to juice up sufficiently in just 10 minutes.
The new Motorola Edge (2023) is priced starting at $599.99 (unlocked) and is available for purchase starting today from Motorola’s website.
