Motorola announces three new phones in the Edge 20 lineup

Motorola announced their new Edge 20 lineup consisting of three smartphones — the Edge 20 Pro, Edge 20 and Edge 20 lite. All three of these devices support sub 6GHz 5G, have 108 megapixel main cameras and a 6.7-inch OLED screen with faster refresh rates.

The top-end Edge 20 Pro includes a periscope-type telephoto lens — a first for Motorola and the Snapdragon 870 SoC.

The devices are arriving in August in Europe, Latin America and Asia. Motorola has also mentioned that it aims to bring a 5G Edge device to North America this fall but hasn’t given out any details yet.

Motorola seems to have packed as much tech as they could in this phone. Apart from their first shot at a periscope-type 5x telephoto lens, the phone also has a 108-megapixel main shooter accompanied by a 16 megapixel ultrawide, which doubles as a macro camera. In addition, there’s a 6.7-inch Gorilla Glass 5 front panel running at 144Hz, 12GB RAM and the Snapdragon 870 SoC. 

While these specs aren’t weak by any measure, they’re still not quite flagship level. There’s no wireless charging, and wired charging only goes as high as 30W. The IP52 rating will give users some peace of mind but isn’t as good as the IP68 rating we see on most flagships. Lastly, Motorola only offers two OS upgrades to the phone, which ships with Android 11 out of the box.

Motorola claims that the Edge 20 is one of the thinnest 5G phones in the market, coming in at just 6.99mm. The phone has the identical rear camera set from the Edge 20 Pro but replaces the 5x telephoto with a 3x telephoto lens. The display and the connectivity also remain the same.

The only differences lie in terms of SoC, which is a Snapdragon 778G, RAM, which is a downgrade from 12GB to 8GB and battery which falls to 4000 mAh.

Motorola Edge 20 Lite

Finally, the budget-friendly entry in the lineup does things quite differently. For starters, it has a Mediatek Dimensity 5G-B chipset. The display is identical in size but runs at 90Hz. The camera remains the same except for the loss of the telephoto and so do the IP52 rating and 30W fast charging. Although the battery sees an upgrade in capacity coming in at 5000 mAh.
