After being away from the flagship category for a while, Motorola came back last year with two Edge phones. Both the Motorola Edge and Edge+ looked good, had decent specs, but failed to make a mark in the market already captured by juggernauts such as Samsung.
Cut to now, in the latest report by Android Police, Motorola has announced three new smartphones under its “Edge” series. Notably, the new Motorola Edge lineup consists of Motorola Edge 20, Edge 20 Pro, and Edge 20 Lite.
One thing that viewers would immediately spot is that the new Edge 20 series phones lack the curved display, which the previous-gen Edge phones flaunted.
Overall, the design looks like Motorola has put in some extra brains at work. However, there is one catch though. Those in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia, will be able to get their hands on all three versions of the Motorola Edge 20 smartphones.
Sadly, Motorola has announced only one Edge device for the USA region in 2021, which will debut at some point this fall. Whatever the reason may be, let us check out the specs of all the phones, one by one.
Motorola Edge 20 Pro
Even though the Motorola Edge 20 Pro is the mightiest one among the lot and will cost you more, sadly, it doesn’t spot top-of-the-line specs.
Motorola has settled with Snapdragon 870 SoC for the Edge 20 Pro, which will be coupled with 6/8/12GB of RAM. Under the hood, the phone will come with a 4,500 mAh battery with 30W Fast Charging.
The phone will come with a 6.7-inch 1080p OLED and 144Hz refresh rate panel. Talking about the cameras, the phone will rock a triple-camera setup with 108MP primary, 8MP 5x telephoto, 16MP ultrawide on the rear, and a 32MP selfie camera.
Motorola Edge 20 Pro will run on the Android 11 operating system with minimum bloatware. It will come with onboard storage options of 128 and 512GB.
Motorola Edge 20
Now, the Edge 20 will come with a Snapdragon 778G processor coupled with 6/8GB of RAM. The phone will come with 128/512GB storage options.
The display is the same as the Edge 20 Pro. Under the hood, Motorola Edge 20 will rock a decent 4,000 mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging.
The camera setup and the lenses are the same as the Edge 20 Pro. Just there is a 3x 8MP telephoto camera, compared to the 5x 8MP telephoto camera on the Edge 20 Pro. It will come with Android 11 out of the box.
Motorola Edge 20 Lite
The cheapest of the Edge 20 series, the Edge 20 Lite compromises a lot on the hardware. It will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 5G-B chipset, coupled with 6/8GB of RAM.
There will be a 128GB storage variant with a microSD card slot. The phone will sport a 6.7-inch 1080p OLED, 90Hz display. The Edge 20 Lite gets a huge 5,000 mAh battery with 30W fast charging support.
The camera setup includes a 108MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP depth sensor, on the rear, and a 32MP selfie camera.
As you would expect, Motorola says that the pricing of the three devices will vary according to different countries. In Europe, the Motorola Edge Lite will start at €349.99 ($415 approx.), Edge 20 will cost €499.99 ($592 approx.), and the 20 Pro will be around €699.99 ($829 approx.).
These phones are set to debut in August in the aforementioned markets. Only the single phone, that will be launched in the US, will arrive sometime this fall.
