Motorola Edge 20 and Edge 20 Fusion launched in India at a starting price of Rs 21,499.
Motorola has introduced the Moto Edge 20 series in India today, as promised, after introducing it in the worldwide market late last month. Although the Edge 20 Pro was not released in India, the Moto Edge 20 and the Moto Edge 20 Lite rebranded as the Moto Edge 20 Fusion were.
So, before we get into the price and availability of the devices, let’s go over some of the main specifications and features of the new Motorola smartphones in India.
Moto Edge 20 and Moto Edge 20 Fusion are now available in India.
Motorola Edge 20
Starting with the Moto Edge 20, the company claims that it is India’s “slimmest 5G smartphone,” measuring just 6.9mm thick. It has a 6.7-inch Full HD+ OLED display with a refresh rate of 144Hz and a touch response rate of 576Hz. For an immersive viewing experience, it also supports the DCI-P3 colour gamut, HDR10+, and 10-bit colour. There’s also a punch-hole cutout in the top-center for the 32MP selfie camera.
The phone has a triple back camera configuration, including a 108MP main lens, when it comes to optics. A 16MP ultra-wide lens and an 8MP telephoto lens, both with 3x optical zoom and 30x Super Zoom capabilities, are also included.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC, which is the company’s 5G-enabled chipset for premium mid-range handsets, powers the gadget. It comes with an integrated Adreno 642L GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage.
There’s also a 4,000mAh battery inside, which supports 30W rapid charging. Motorola claims that a 10-minute charge may provide up to 8 hours of battery life.
In addition to these features, the smartphone supports 5G networks, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6, and NFC. A USB-C connector for charging and data transfer is also located on the bottom. The phone is available in two colours: Frosted Pearl and Frosted Emerald, and it comes pre-installed with the Android 11-based My UX skin, which is a near-stock version of Android.
Motorola Edge 20 Fusion
The Moto Edge 20 Fusion, which is aimed at the cheaper end of the market, has identical specs and features to its worldwide version. However, there is a significant difference in the renamed Moto Edge 20 Lite, which we shall discuss in more detail later in this article.
So, let’s start with the display: the Moto Edge 20 Fusion has a 6.7-inch Full HD+ OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It also includes a punch-hole cutout in the top-center to house the 32MP selfie camera.
The smartphone has a triple-camera system on the back, with the same 108MP main lens as its older brother. The Edge 20 Fusion, on the other hand, has an 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP depth sensor instead of the 16MP and 8MP sensors seen in the Moto Edge 20.
The CPU is what separates the Moto Edge 20 Lite from the India-focused Moto Edge 20 Fusion. The Moto Edge 20 Fusion has the MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor, whereas the worldwide edition has the MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC. It has up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The smartphone also has a 5,000mAh battery, which is larger than the Moto Edge 20. It also has a 30W fast charging connection for recharging the phone rapidly. The phone is available in two colours: Cyber Teal and Electric Graphite, and it ships with the My UX skin pre-installed on Android 11.
