The global version of the Motorola Edge+ retails around $1,000 but we expect it to be more competitive in India. With likes of iQOO 3 (review), Realme X50 (review) OnePlus 8 series, Mi 10 all retailing in between Rs 35,000 to Rs 50,000, Motorola has its task cut out with regards to Motorola Edge+ pricing. We expect it to be competitive to all these aforementioned 5G phones.
