Motorola Edge 20 5G series: All You Need to Know

Published

on

Motorola Edge 20 Pro, the most costly handset in the series, is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 found in the original Edge+. It comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage as standard, but no support for micro SD cards. Owners will also get access to a 6.7-inch Full-HD+ screen with a 144Hz refresh rate, according to the report. The Motorola Edge 20 Pro, however, does not have a curved-edge display, as evidenced by the leaked press renders below. A flat panel with a centred punch-hole has been substituted for that aesthetic element.

A rectangular camera bump sits on the back, housing an LED flash, some branding, and three sensors. The main camera is a 108-megapixel sensor, but there’s also a 16-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and an 8-megapixel 5x periscope zoom camera. A 4,500mAh battery with 30W fast charging capabilities completes the Edge 20 Pro’s kit. Android 11 is most likely pre-installed as well, with Android 12 apparently on the way. In Europe, the Motorola Edge 20 Pro is projected to cost €699 at launch. Midnight Blue and Blue Vegan Leather will be the two colours offered. The official announcement is set for August 5, and shipments are expected to begin soon after.

Motorola Edge 20 is a 5G smartphone.

In addition to the high-end Edge 20 Pro, Motorola is developing the Motorola Edge 20 5G, which will employ the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset. In this case, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage are combined. It can’t be expanded using a micro SD card, so if you run out of space, you’ll have to rely on cloud storage to keep papers and photographs.

When it comes to photographs, the Edge 20 5G’s cameras are still rather good. The main and ultra-wide sensors are taken from the Pro model, and previous rumours suggested that an 8-megapixel 3x telephoto zoom camera would be included as well. The phone also has the same 6.7-inch 144Hz display as the Pro model, a flat iPhone 12-like aluminium frame, and a 4,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging capabilities. Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and WLAN 6 are among the connectivity standards supported.

The Motorola Edge 20 5G, as well as the Pro model, should be introduced next week. It will be available in Frosted Gray and Frosted White finishes and will retail for €499 in Europe. A specific North American version with a larger display and a downgraded camera system is in the works, however, details have yet to be revealed.  The devices will be able to carry out tasks such as file switch with ease.

Motorola Edge 20 Lite.

We have no idea how much the Motorola Edge 20 Lite will set you back. However, we do know that it will be the most cost-effective phone in the series, and one of the top budget 5G phones in 2021. Motorola has chosen the Dimensity 720G 5G chipset, which includes 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The Edge 20 Lite, unlike the other smartphones, will accept micro SD cards, allowing you to take as many images as you want without worrying about running out of space.

The 6.7-inch display with the centred punch-hole is still there, but the refresh rate has been reduced to 90Hz, which is still acceptable. On the rear, there’s a triple-camera array as well as a 32-megapixel selfie sensor. A 108-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and a 2-megapixel depth camera for greater bokeh make up the latter.

The Edge 20 Lite is essentially a glorified dual-camera system. A 5,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging support, a 3.5mm headphone jack for hard-core users, Android 11, and Bluetooth 5 connectivity round out the remainder of the specs.
