Motorola established its first fifth-generation flagships in late April 2020 with the unveiling of the Motorola Edge and Edge +. Following the introduction of the Motorola Edge S in January 2021, the company recently unveiled three new smartphones in the Edge family on Thursday, July 29, 2021, the Motorola Edge 20, Motorola Edge 20 Pro and Edge 20 Lite. With a large OLED display, a 108-megapixel main camera, 5G connectivity and affordable prices, these handsets can be a tough competitor in the market. In a general assessment, the most advanced member of this family is the Motorola Edge 20 Pro, and the Edge 20 and the Lite version are in the next categories.
It was extended. But in the Edge 20 family, there is no news of a curved screen. In the upper central part of the screen, the front camera hole can be seen. The Motorola logo is still on the back, and the fingerprint sensor is still under the display layer (except for the Lite model, where the sensor is located on the power button). The camera module also protrudes slightly from the surface of the body. All three devices are IP52 protected against water droplets. Having 5G connections is also one of the common points of all three new Motorola phones.
After this overview of the Edge 20 family, we will look at their specifications and features. It should be noted that due to the many commonalities between these three devices, first the Motorola Edge 20 Pro is fully introduced and then in the introduction of Edge 20 and Edge 20 Lite, it is enough to mention the differences. Motorola Edge 20 Pro
As mentioned, the Motorola Edge 20 Pro is the most advanced device in the Edge 20 series. In addition to the above specifications, it must be acknowledged that this phone is also the most stylish member of this family. The phone is available in Midnight Blue and Iridescent White. The phone is 7.99 mm thick, weighs 190 grams and the back is made of glossy glass. Of course, this device is also produced in a special version with a cover of blue vegetable leather. In this version, the weight of the device is reduced to 185 grams and the leather cover, while not absorbing fingerprints, also makes it easier to hold the phone.
The 6.7-inch 10-bit display of this smartphone - which the manufacturer calls Max Vision - is OLED and its resolution is + FHD. The 144Hz display upgrade rate is said to be 140 percent faster than the 60Hz display and 60 percent faster than the first-generation Motorola Edge. The sampling rate of the touch is 576 Hz, which, while providing a smooth experience of working with Android, also looks great for gaming. DCI-P3 color spectrum coverage, HDR10 + support, and Gorilla Glass 5 durable glass are other features of this display.
The command of the Motorola Edge 20 Pro is in the hands of the Snapdragon 870 chipset. The Snapdragon 870 is actually an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 that was used on the Motorola Edge + device last year. The 7-nanometer chip consists of a 3.2 GHz core, three 2.42 GHz cores (based on the Cortex-A77 processor architecture) and four 1.8 GHz cores (based on the Cortex-A55 processor architecture), and its Adreno 650 graphics processing unit. 12 GB of RAM (LPDDR5) comes with the help of the device processor and makes it easy to run heavy applications. The presence of 256 GB of storage space (UFS 3.1) also greatly relieves the user's imagination. The manufacturer did not mention the possibility of upgrading the internal memory, but listed features such as Turbo Write and Host-Aware Performance Booster.
The rectangular module on the back of the device houses 3 cameras. The main camera in this set - which apparently consists of Samsung's ISOCELL HM2 sensor - has a resolution of 108 megapixels and aperture of the lens is f/1.9. In this lens, every 9 pixels is merged into a very large 1 pixel, so the default resolution will be 12 megapixels. This technology - which Motorola calls the Ultra Pixel - increases light sensitivity by up to 9 times, increasing camera performance in low-light environments.
The next member of this series is a 16 megapixel ultraviolet camera with what Motorola It's called Macro Vision, and apparently it means having autofocus on this camera, it also plays the role of a macro camera. According to Motorola, this camera allows the user to get 5 times closer to the subject and shoot from a distance of 3 cm from the subject. But perhaps the most exciting part of the Motorola Edge 20 Pro optics suite is its 8-megapixel telephoto lens. According to the manufacturer, this is the first periscope-style telephoto lens among Motorola devices. This 8-megapixel camera is equipped with optical image stabilization and can achieve up to 5x optical zoom and up to 50x hybrid zoom (called Super Zoom).
The main camera of the set can record 8K video at 24 frames per second, which It is seen for the first time in Motorola phones. Slow-motion video recording at 960 frames per second is another feature of this phone, which according to Motorola, this video recording is up to 4 times slower than slow motion video recording on previous Motorola devices. Another interesting video feature in this phone - which is made possible thanks to advanced microphones - is called Audio Zoom. This feature focuses on the audio of the main subject of the video by filtering out annoying noises during video recording. Not to mention, the front camera is 32 megapixels and its aperture is f/2.25.
The Motorola Edge 20 Pro has a battery capacity of 4,500 mAh and is charged with a 30-watt fast charger technology called Turbo Power. For a smartphone in this category, the 30-watt charging standard may seem a bit low, but considering the battery capacity, it is unlikely that the phone will need to be recharged during the day. Needless to say, according to Motorola, just 10 minutes of charging the battery will provide the energy needed to work with the phone for 9 hours.
Motorola Edge 20 Pro enters the market with Android 11 operating system. This phone will receive at least 2 major Android updates. The device is also equipped with the ThinkShield security platform, and according to Motorola, security updates will be sent for up to 2 years (every two months). The active user interface of this phone, namely My UX, is also attractive in its kind and offers interesting features to the user, such as taking screenshots by placing three fingers on the screen or the ability to mute the ringtone after picking up the phone (pick -up to silence), but Motorola emphasizes that the company's approach has been to bring the device platform as close as possible to the pure Android version (Stock Android).
Some of the software features in the Motorola Edge 20 Pro seem to be very useful, including the Ready For feature, which allows the user to connect their phone wirelessly to a PC or TV and play games, pictures and videos on a larger screen. Have access. Other benefits of Ready For are the simultaneous viewing of phone and computer files, the easy transfer of files from phone to computer and vice versa, and the use of the phone as a webcam and the transfer of video call to the computer monitor. The Motorola Edge 20 Pro is a fifth generation phone that supports under 6 GHz. Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1 and USB-C port are other communication options of this phone. The Motorola Edge 20 Pro does not have a headphone jack, but the USB-C to headphone jack is included in the box. Motorola Edge 20
The Motorola Edge 20, with a thickness of only 6.99 mm, is one of the thinnest phones in the world today. Unlike the Pro version, the back of the body is made of plastic, but according to the manufacturer, its matte design prevents fingerprints. The frame of the device is apparently made of aluminum and the front of the phone is protected by durable Gorilla Glass 3 (2.5 dimensional type). In addition to having an IP52 degree of protection, Motorola has also introduced water repellent capability in the introduction of this phone. Not to mention, the Motorola Edge 20 weighs 163 grams, is relatively light and is available in three colors: gray, white and green.
There seems to be no difference between the display of this phone and the display of the Pro version, but one of the most important differences between the two devices You have to search in their processing section. Motorola has outsourced the Edge 20 processor to the Snapdragon 778G chipset, which is less powerful than the Snapdragon 870. The 6-nanometer chip consists of 8 cores (4 Cortex-A78 cores and 4 A55 cores) with a maximum clock speed of 2.4 GHz and its Adreno 624L GPU. 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal memory complete the processing set of this phone. Of course, Motorola did not mention Turbo Write and Host-Aware Performance Booster in this section.
There is also a decline in specifications in the battery sector. Where Motorola has chosen a 4,000 mAh battery for use in the Edge 20. The battery still uses 30-watt fast charge technology and, according to the manufacturer, will last up to 8 hours with just 10 minutes of charging. Other hardware and software specifications of this phone are no different from the Pro version.
Motorola Edge 20 Lite is produced in black and green colors with a sleek and polished look and weighs 185 grams. At 8.25mm, the phone is a bit thicker than the previous two models, but there's a compelling reason for the increase: battery life. Contrary to expectations, the battery capacity of the Lite version is higher than the previous two models and reaches 5,000 mAh. Like the previous two models, here the battery is charged with a 30 watt charger. According to the manufacturer, this battery easily lasts up to two days and with just 10 minutes of charging, the user will not need to recharge the phone until the end of the day.
The only difference between the Motorola Edge 20 Lite display compared to the previous two models is the 90 update rate Hertz is related. But the phone's processor has dropped significantly to the Dimensity 720 chipset (MediaTek). 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory complete this set. Fortunately, using internal storage can improve internal memory. Having a headphone jack can also be good news for those who are interested in this phone.
In the light version, we also have a set of 3 cameras, and the main camera still has a resolution of 108 megapixels. But the resolution of the Ultraviolet camera has been reduced from 16 megapixels to 8 megapixels, and instead of a telephoto lens, a 2-megapixel depth camera has been installed. Needless to say, the resolution of the selfie camera is still 32 megapixels. Price and release date Motorola has not announced an exact release date for these products, but we do know that all three handsets will be available in Europe, Latin America and Asia in the coming weeks. is not). The Motorola Edge 20 Pro is priced at 699 and the base price of the Motorola Edge 20 starts at 499. The Motorola Edge 20 Lite also retails for 349.
