Motorola unveiled its latest flagship Edge 20 range at its 29 July launch event. The new series includes budget Edge 20 Lite, midrange Edge 20, and premium Edge 20 Pro – all of which offer 5G connectivity.
While chipsets and certain features (and, accordingly, prices) set the phones apart, they do share 6.7in OLED displays, a high refresh rate (up to 144Hz) and HDR10+. The phones also support the full DCI-P3 colour space, 10-bit colour, 30W fast charging (on batteries up to 5000mAh), and Motorola’s ‘Ready For’ feature for seamless phone-to-desktop use. As for cameras, all three phones lead with 108Mp main sensors.
