Motorola has shifted its attention away from its foldable phones to focus on its Edge devices. Soon after the release timeframe of the new Motorola Edge devices was leaked, we got wind of what these phones will be called. Evan Blass took to Twitter recently to tell us the possible names of these three phones that will hit the market later this month.
The first of these new Motorola Edge phones will be called the Motorola Edge 20
This phone had its entire universe leaked recently. The Motorola Edge 20, previously named the Berlin NA, will be the middle specced phone. This will be the American variant. It will use the Snapdragon 778G SoC with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of storage.
The 6.78 inch display will be a 1080p+ panel (2460 x 1080) that can run at 120 Hz. It will have a centered punch hole up top.
The main camera sensor is a massive 108-megapixels and it’s partnered with an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera that will double as a macro lens. There will be a 32-megapixel selfie camera up front. It will also have a 5,000mAh battery.
The International variant was code named the Berlin. It will have a slightly smaller 6.67 inch display, a 16-megapixel main camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 3X zoom lens.
Next is the lower tier variant
Previously called the Kyoto, the Motorola Edge 20 Lite will be using a MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. It will also have 256GB of storage. The display will be a 1080p+ display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080. It will also have a punch hole and it will run at 90 Hz.
The Motorola Edge 20 Lite will have one more camera than the regular variant. It will use a 108-megapixel, Samsung-made SOCELL S4KHM2 sensor, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 32-megapixel front facing camera. Keeping the lights on is a large 5,000mAh battery.
The top-tier variant will be called the Motorola Edge 20 Pro
At the top of the pecking order, we have the Motorola Edge 20 Pro. This device will use the Snapdragon 870 SoC with up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
It will use the same 108-megapixel camera that’s on the Motorola Edge 20, but may have an 8-megapixel telephoto camera that can reach 5X. The selfie camera will be 32-megapixel (though it’s believed that the Chinese variant will have a 16-megapixel selfie camera).
Another premium feature is the rumored under-display fingerprint scanner. None of the other devices are indicated to have one. What’s weird is the fact that Motorola decided to put in a smaller 4,500mAh battery. That’s 10% smaller than the batteries in the other models.
These new Motorola Edge devices are rumored to launch at the end of July, so we can expect some sort of announcement before then.
