Save for the camera bump which can be quite monotonous looking and uninspiring, the new Edge is actually quite pretty to look at. It has an anti-fingerprint coating on the front and velvet anti-glare glass inlay on the back, and sandwiched between them is a thin, precision-cut aluminum frame. Both glass surfaces benefit from the protection by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.

The device is IP68 rated which affords up to 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) immersion in freshwater for up to 30 minutes. It is armed with a “triple high-res camera”.

Leading the trio is a 50 MP main camera with OIS and “instant all-pixel focus” which motorola says offers 32x more focusing pixels compared to traditional PDAF. Completing the triple camera setup is a 50 MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision and a 12 MP 2x telephoto portrait camera. Meanwhile, over at the front, it has a whopping 60 MP selfie camera with Snapdragon’s Cognitive Image Signal Processor.
