Motorola has informed tech largest that their upcoming Edge device will be equipped with one Android update for now. The Edge Plus variant that is sold in America would also get one, but the manufacturer has since come back.
Motorola Edge update policy
The Motorola Edge and the Motorola Edge Plus were presented at the end of April, with only the former appearing in the united states. The Plus variant is reserved for the American provider Verizon Wireless. Both devices are standard delivered with Android 10. The American branch of the manufacturer also announced at the time that the Edge Plus would get Android 11, but no Android 12 update.
That generated a lot of resistance and the manufacturer has since come back to that. For example, that top device from Motorola is now guaranteed to receive two Android updates. Here only the Motorola Edge comes on the market and Tech Largest has asked the manufacturer about the updated policy of this device.
The answer to our question has now been received: “The Motorola Edge is currently not getting two Android updates like the edge + does. If this changes in the future, we will let you know, ”said Motorola in a response. That is noticeable for a device in this price range – and in fact, every price range – as a major disadvantage, also because Android 10 has been available for months now.
Motorola Edge specifications
The Motorola Edge has a striking OLED screen of 6.67 inches, both sides of which are strongly rounded. A small hole for the front camera can be found on the screen, with which you shoot 25-megapixel selfies. The screen has a refresh rate of 90Hz, making everything look smooth.
Four cameras are placed on the back. The main camera shoots pictures of 64 megapixels. There is also a telephoto lens for optical zoom twice without loss of quality. With the wide-angle lens, you can shoot images with a wider angle and with the fourth lens, you can shoot even better portraits.
Under the hood is the Snapdragon 765G chip, which supports a 5G connection. There is 6GB RAM onboard and 128GB internal storage. A fingerprint scanner is incorporated in the screen and the device also contains stereo speakers. Finally, a battery of 4500 mAh with support for fast charging was chosen. The device has a suggested retail price of 599 euros, can be found in our Motorola Edge price comparison, and will be delivered to the Dutch market from next week.
