There is a punch-hole cutout on the top left corner of the screen for the selfie camera. The phone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 865 SoC coupled with 12GB of RAM and 256GB UFS 3.0 storage onboard. There is no option to expand internal storage.
Triple rear cameras on the Edge+ consists of a 108MP main sensor with an f/1.8 aperture with Optical Image Stabilization. There is a 16MP, f/2.2 ultrawide lens with a 117-degree field of view. It also doubles as a Time of Flight sensor (TOF) which enables bokeh and portrait shots. The third is an 8MP, f/2.4 telephoto lens with a 3x optical zoom.

Motorola Edge+ Price and Availability in India
The Motorola Edge+ launched at ₹74,999 in India and the smartphone will go on pre-order starting today on Flipkart and offline retail stores across India. The Motorola Edge+ is expected to go on sale in India starting 26th May. Motorola has partnered with ICICI Bank to give you an Instant Discount of ₹7,500 on credit card transactions. The device comes in Thunder Grey and Smoky Sangria color options.
I think Motorola is being too ambitious with its new flagship. The Edge+ bears a price tag of ₹74,999 and even the launch offer brings down the effective price to ₹67,499. At this price, the Motorola Edge+ seems a bit overpriced. Mi 10 and OnePlus 8 Pro offer way better value for money.
