Motorola Moto Edge 20 series: Everything you need to know

Motorola’s new Edge 20 series of phones has been confirmed internationally — and although we’re not getting the midrange Edge 20 in the U.S., we are getting a rather similar variant known as the Edge, with presales starting August 23. Here’s everything we know about each device in the lineup so far, including how much they’re likely to cost you.

Motorola Edge 20 Lite: The baby of the bunch

The Edge 20 Lite will likely be the cheapest of the new Edge 20 series and is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 720 5G chip with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It sports a 6.7-inch full HD+ display, the same as the other phones in the series. It’s reported to have three rear cameras: A 108MP main, a 16MP ultrawide, and an 8MP lens, with a 32MP selfie camera on the front. The battery here is expected to be the biggest of the range at 5,000mAh and it will feature 30-watt fast charging.

The Edge 20 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chip with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. It has a 6.7-inch OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate under the hood. When it comes to cameras, the Edge 20 is reported to have the same lineup as the Edge 20 Lite. It has a 4,000mAh battery that is smaller battery than the one in the Edge 20 Lite. This phone won’t be coming to the U.S. and Canada — instead, the new Motorola Edge will launch in late August — more on that in a moment.

Motorola Edge 20 Pro: The flagship

The flagship of the Edge 20 lineup, the Edge 20 Pro is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip with 6GB, 8GB, or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. Like the other two phones in the series, it will has a 6.7-inch full HD+ display with a 144Hz refresh rate that can give give high-end gaming phones a run for their money. The cameras on offer include a 108MP camera with 5x optical zoom, an 8MP telephoto camera, and a 16MP ultrawide camera. It’s the only model that supports 8K video at 24 frames per second, while the rest of the lineup shoots in 4K. The battery capacity is 4,500mAh and it supports 30-watt TurboPower fast charging.

The Motorola Edge for the U.S. and Canada

Although the U.S. isn’t getting the midrange Motorola Edge 20, the U.S. variant, simply called “Edge,” boasts some great specs. It shares the same Snapdragon 778G chip as the Edge 20, and comes with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage, which doesn’t appear to be expandable via microSD card. It boasts a larger 6.8-inch LCD FHD+ display with that 144Hz refresh rate, and its battery is larger than that of the international Edge 20, coming in at 5,000mAh with 30-watt charging. The cameras on offer also differ, with a 108MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP depth sensor, plus a 32MP selfie camera. The U.S. Edge is a weighty device at 200 grams compared to the 185g of the Motorola Edge 20 Pro. The phone comes in one color: Nebula Blue.

When is the new Motorola Edge on sale in the U.S. and Canada?

The new Edge will be available for presale starting August 23, with the phone available to buy beginning September 2. For a limited time, you’ll be able to pick up the Edge for $500, saving $200 off the usual price of $700. In the U.S. you’ll be able to get an unlocked handset that works with all carriers at Best Buy, Amazon, B&H Photo, and Motorola. In the coming months, the Edge 20 series will also be available from Spectrum Mobile and Verizon. Customers in Canada can also expect availability in the coming months.

Amazon Music

It's a jungle of music streaming platforms out there, so it stands to reason that Amazon would have one among its massive kingdom of services. And while Amazon Music might not be top of mind among the Spotifys and Apple Musics of the world, you might be surprised by its 100-million-song library, high-resolution and spatial audio offerings, podcast library, Alexa voice control, and a pretty amiable user interface that makes finding music pretty easy.

The OnePlus 11 is the latest premium smartphone from OnePlus and is crammed with generational upgrades in every area. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, faster charging that tops up the large 5,000mAh battery in around 30 minutes, and more efficient storage and RAM are just some of the many upgrades we see on the flagship phone.

On the connectivity front, the OnePlus 11 gets a broader set of supported 5G frequency bands, Bluetooth 5.3, and theoretical support for Wi-Fi 7, which will be activated later following regulatory approvals per region. But there's one connectivity question on many people's minds: Does the OnePlus 11 have eSIM? We've yet to see a OnePlus device ship with eSIM support — including last year's OnePlus 10T and OnePlus 10 Pro. eSIM is a handy feature to have and can be a great convenience, so is it available on the OnePlus 11?
