No fewer than four Motorola Edge 20 phones will launch before the month is out, according to a prominent firm with a strong track record of doing things right.
Evan Blass he tweeted which follows them to the excellent Motorola Edge and Edge Plus will come “at the end of July.” While you can expect Motorola to give the sequences the “Edge 2” brand, Blass reports that the phones will go under the Motorola Edge 20, Edge 20 Lite and Edge 20 Pro names. The fourth phone will likely be a slightly modified Edge 20 for the U.S. market, and apparently exclusive to Verizon.
The tweet itself was a follow-up to the since Blass did it last month where he described the specifications of the four phones from the phones ’filtered internal documents. Subsequently, they were called Pstar, Kyoto, Berlin and Berlin North America.
The best specced of these was Pstar, which presumably will be the Motorola Edge 20 Plus. Apparently it will boast a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, 6-, 8- or 12GB RAM and 128- or 256GB of memory. It will be a 6.67-inch phone with a 120Hz 2400 x 1080 panel, with a triple-camera frame consisting of a 108MP main snapper, a 16MP wide-angle sensor and an 8MP 5x zoom telephoto lens.
Berlin will probably be the standard Motorola Edge 20, and according to Blass it will ship with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor, backed by 6- or 8GB of RAM and 182- or 256GB of memory.
Things then differ between the US version and the global one, with the American phone coming in at 6.78 inches with a large 5000mAh battery, compared to the international version at 6.67 inches which only comes with 4000mAh.
The reverse of this is that the international version, at least on paper, has a better camera installed. While both have a 108MP main camera, the global version has a 16MP wide-angle sensor and an 8MP 3x telephoto lens. The US, on the other hand, has an 8MP wide-angle camera and a 2MP depth sensor.
Finally, there’s Kyoto, which appears to be the Motorola Edge 20 Lite. According to Blass, this will pack a 2400 x 1080 90Hz panel, with a MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC that powers things up. It will be available with 6- or 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory, and will share the same camera installation as the US version in Berlin.
We rather liked the original Motorola Edge when we reviewed it last year, finally giving it a four-star rating. “The Motorola Edge is a great phone, especially at the price,” wrote Vice President Max Parker. “It looks like a real flagship and it doesn’t sacrifice much to get it at the lowest price.” It’s fast, has a good camera, 5G and is one of the best phones I’m looking for. ”
We hope that Motorola Edge 20 offers the same impressive experience at an interesting price.
