Verizon to Offer Motorola's Edge Plus for $850

Motorola's new high-end phone will be available at Verizon stores and online March 24 for $150 less than Motorola previously announced.

The Motorola Edge Plus.

Motorola's Edge Plus phone will be available on Verizon as of March 24, the carrier said on Monday. Motorola's new high-end device comes with a 6.7-inch screen and ultrawide cameras and seeks to compete against premium phones like Apple's iPhone 13 Pro and Samsung's Galaxy S22 Ultra

Though Motorola originally said the Edge Plus would have a starting price of $1,000, Verizon said the premium phone will be available at Verizon stores and online for $850. Last month, Motorola said the Edge Plus would also be available unlocked through Motorola's website as well as retailers like Amazon and Best Buy. Other carriers that'll offer the phone include Boost Mobile and Republic Wireless, Motorola said.

The 2022 version of the Edge Plus has an OLED screen that can boost its refresh rate up to 144Hz. It also features a 60-megapixel front camera. There are two 50-megapixel cameras on the back, along with a 2-megapixel depth camera designed for taking better portrait photos. The device runs on Qualcomm's newest mobile processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

Motorola is also leaning on the Edge Plus' 50-megapixel ultrawide camera to grab attention. Popular phones like the iPhone 13 Pro Max and the Galaxy S22 Ultra each have 12-megapixel ultrawide cameras, potentially giving Motorola the chance to stand out.
