LEAKED specs for Motorola's upcoming phone has led to some pretty impressive renders being created.
The Motorola Edge+ is expected to be the company's 5G flagship smartphone that could take on the likes of Apple and Samsung.
The 5K renders were created by Pricebaba who partnered with tipster Onleaks.
They show the smartphone with its anticipated large waterfall display with very thin bezels and pronounced curves.
Pricebaba's Steve Hemmerstoffer predicts the display will measure between 6.5 to 6.8-inches.
Experts are also expecting Full HS+ resolution.
In-keeping with thoughts that the flagship phone will compete with the likes of Samsung and iPhone, the renders show a hole-punch selfie camera.
However, these renders show the selfie camera as so small it's barely noticeable, something that would make the phone stand out next to current offerings.
The entire phone reportedly measures just 161.1 x 71.3 x 9.5mm.
It's expected to have three rear cameras in a vertical setup.
These should be placed next to a noise cancelling microphone and LED lighting.
The camera setup itself looks particularly like the iPhone 11 Pro in these renders.
They also show the famous Motorola symbol on the back of the phone which is expected to light up for notifications.
It's already been confirmed that the phone will be powered by Snapdragon 865 chipset and Snapdragon X55 modem, guaranteeing 5G capabilities.
For now, aspects like price and storage remain a bit of mystery.
Outstanding battery life and Android 10 software are expected.
The Motorola Edge+ was initially supposed to be unveiled at the MWC 2020 conference but this was cancelled due to coronavirus.
A new unveiling date hasn't been announced yet but is expected to be soon.
Once this happens we'll be able to confirm how accurate these renders are and hopefully get some pricing information.
What is 5G?
Here's what you need to know…
- The term 5G stands for 5th-generation, and is simply the next "version" of mobile phone networks.
- The world's network operators have settled on a new method of delivering mobile internet to your phone, making it possible to offer far higher download speeds.
- Early figures suggest you'll be able to download 4K movies in a matter of seconds, and buffering video will be a thing of the past.
- But 5G also promises low "latency" – the physical delay in transmitting data – which is a major boon for gamers, who desperately need their online actions to be sent and received as quickly as possible.
- EE is first across the line in the UK, with 5G live in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham or Manchester.
- The good news is that EE plans to roll out 5G in a further 10 cities by the end of 2019: Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol.
- Vodafone has also switched on 5G in seven cities: Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, and London.
In other news, iPhone apps can now spam you with ad notifications – but there’s a way to stop it.
