Motorola returns to high-end market with edge 20 series

Motorola has unveiled its new edge 20 series consisting of the edge 20, edge 20 Pro and edge 20 Lite. All three will get a large 6.7 inch screen, a 108MP camera, 5G support and 3 totally different prices.

Motorola hasn't released a high-end phone for some time. The new edge 20 series changes that. The edge 20 and edge 20 Pro are the natural successors to the edge and edge+ that came out in the early 2020s. The edge 20 Lite is an entirely new model within the edge line.

The Motorola edge 20 Lite, like its two big brothers, features a 6.7-inch OLED screen but with a 90Hz refresh rate where the other edge 20 models have 144Hz. With a retail price of 349 euros, it is the cheapest of the trio but has the largest battery capacity: 5000 mAh. Moreover, like the other models, it is equipped with a 108MP camera sensor. It also has an 8MP camera with ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP depth camera.
