The Motorola Edge 20 series has been leaked, building up to its reported August 5 launch date. Posted by the reliable Evan Blass, all three variants of the Edge 20 series have been revealed as part of renders that look pretty much final. The Edge 20 Pro has received the most amount of attention, of the three, and looks quite interesting as well. The renders further suggest that while the Edge 20 Lite may come with a gradient turquoise shade, the standard Edge 20 will feature a shade of grey, and the Edge 20 Pro comes bearing a blue colour variant, among other possible options that have not been revealed yet.
Motorola Edge 20, 20 Lite and 20 Pro: design details
According to the leak, the Motorola Edge 20 Pro appears to feature fairly uniform bezels. It has a chunky triple rear camera, with the top module being square — and therefore likely being a telephoto one. The camera clearly mentions 108MP image resolution, 2.1um pixel size and zoom range of nearly 10x, hence detailing some key camera specifications here. Based on the camera specs mentioned, it is likely that the Edge 20 Pro would come with the Samsung Isocell HM2 image sensor, which offers pixel binning to create 2.1um ultra pixels — which is exactly what is mentioned on the camera module as well.
While the display of the Edge 20 Pro isn’t curved, the rear appears to feature dual curved edges, and may hence be easier to grip. The rear also appears to come with a texture, hence adding a distinct identity to the phone as well. The fingerprint scanner isn’t at the rear, so it will likely be an under-display one. The front camera, meanwhile, appears to be placed at the centre in a drill hole slot. There also appears to be an alert slider to the left of the phone.
In comparison, the Edge 20 Lite appears to feature a 108MP triple camera unit at the back but with a slightly different placement, while the standard Edge 20 has straight edges akin to the Apple iPhone 12 series, along with a 108MP triple rear camera setup.
As per market information, the Motorola Edge 20 Pro features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, along with up to 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. The standard Edge 20, meanwhile, may be powered by the Snapdragon 778G SoC. The Edge 20 is said to feature a 6.67-inch OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, and a 4,000mAh battery. The Edge 20 Pro, on the other hand, is expected to feature a 5x telephoto periscope lens, and come with a beefier, 4,500mAh battery.
In comparison, the Motorola Edge 20 Lite is expected to run on the Snapdragon 720 SoC, along with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. More details should be available once it is launched, with most rumours tipping the launch for August 5 in China.
