The Motorola Edge+ will be unveiled at 12pm (noon) IST, however as we mentioned, the company has not revealed whether it wants to host a virtual event to take the wraps off the new phone. If it does host an online event, Motorola will stream it online via its YouTube channel and social handles. The phone is teased to be exclusively available on Flipkart, at least among the e-retailers. The Motorola Edge+ is priced at $999 (roughly Rs. 75,300) in the US and we expect the India pricing to be around the same range. It has been released in the US in Smoky Sangria and Thunder Grey colour options. All official details regarding pricing, availability, and colour options in India will be detailed later today.
