With this move, the company aims to attract the youth looking for fashion elements in everything.
Motorola Edge 30 Neo: Specs that charm

The plastic back is in matte finish and it’s grainy so that it doesn’t slip from your hand easily, but the plastic may get scratches when handled in a careless manner. Power button and Volume rocker are on the top right edge of the phone.
