Motorola has launched three new Edge 20 series 5G phones – the edge 20 pro, edge 20 and edge 20 lite, which will be available in August, in Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Asia. The specs look alluring with powerful processors, quality camera systems including a periscope style zoom on the pro model, a faster display refresh rate and faster battery charging.

Motorola edge 20 pro delivers a new 108MP main camera and features ‘Ultra Pixel technology’, where every nine pixels is combined into one large ultra pixel, which improves light sensitivity by nine times and results in better low light performance.

There’s also an ultrawide-angle lens with built-in Macro Vision for extreme close-ups, as close as 3cm away. The third camera is motorola’s first periscope-style telephoto lens, which bends the light 90-degrees for superior clarity from five times the distance. A 50x Super Zoom and 8K resolution video finishes off what is undeniably a great camera setup.

The edge 20 pro comes with a big 6.7" Max Vision display with OLED technology and 10-bit colour, for a true-to-life on the display. A 144Hz refresh rate – the highest refresh rate available on mainstream smartphones – will certainly appeal to gamers and action movie fans. Powered by the ultra-fast Snapdragon 870 5G Mobile Platform, the edge 20 comes with 256 GB of built-in storage and 12 GB of the latest generation memory so everything runs smoothly.

Users can go over 30 hours on 5G without having to recharge and there’s also TurboPower 30 for quick charging - nine hours of power in ten minutes of charging.

The 5G phone features a 6.7” display and industry-leading 144Hz refresh rate, as well as Qualcomm processor and ultra-fast Snapdragon 778G 5G Mobile Platform, supporting Wi-Fi 6. The edge 20 comes with up to 256 GB of built-in storage, up to 8 GB of the latest generation memory and 4000 mAh battery, which features TurboPower 30 charging which gives you eight hours of power in just ten minutes.
