Motorola today makes the global launch of the Edge 20 line, consisting of three phones with advanced technical data sheets: Motorola Edge 20, Motorola Edge 20 Pro, and Motorola Edge 20 Lite. The smartphones bring many of the features found in rivals offered by Apple, Samsung, and Xiaomi. They also bet on the Ready For productivity platform that turns the phone into a computer.

“There are three versions so that a larger number of people can unleash their creativity and push their boundaries,” the company says in a statement. The line came about in April 2020 after they noticed a shortage of Motorola products in the premium category. At the time, the original Motorola Edge and the Motorola Edge Plus, a variant that gave way to the Pro, were announced.

All of today’s releases run Android 11, feature a large 6.7-inch screen, and offer 5G internet compatibility. Let’s know more about these devices.

It repeats the sober and elegant design of the original Motorola Edge. The manufacturer points out that it is one of the thinnest smartphones on the market, with a thickness of 6.99 mm and a 20:9 aspect ratio, a trademark of the company.

The photographic technology is provided by the 108 MP main camera (f/1.9), the 16 MP hybrid camera (ultra-wide + macro) (f/2.2), and the 8 MP telephoto lens (f/2.4). According to Motorola, the device achieves 3x optical zoom. It also takes 32 MP (f/2.2) selfies.

Its technical sheet includes 128 GB storage, Snapdragon 778G processor (up to 3.2 GHz), and 6 GB or 8 GB RAM. Computing applied to graphics is 55% faster than in the last generation.

The Motorola Edge 20 has a 4,000 mAh battery, a number below what we have currently seen on the market. Still, the company promises two days of autonomy in normal use conditions. This phone comes with 30-watt charging, with a promise of eight hours of charge after 10 minutes in the socket.

The most powerful version of this line, the Motorola Edge 20 Pro advances mainly in terms of photography. It repeats the Edge 20’s sensors but gains a periscopic camera that enables 5x optical zoom. The company explains that the component “bends” light by 90 degrees, resulting in a clearer and better-defined image. Huawei’s smartphones have adopted this technology for years.

Motorola has chosen to skimp on the Edge 20 Lite’s technical sheet, which should translate into a lower price point than today’s other launches. The premium phone has a 6.7-inch gOLED display with Full HD+ resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels) and a 90 Hz refresh rate.
