The Motorola Edge 20 is in the middle of the pack and features nearly the same camera system as the Pro model, but it has a slightly downgraded telephoto lens. It has the upper mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, but retains much of the same features and even design of the Pro model. The battery is also slightly downgraded — from 4,500 mAh in the Pro to 4,000 mAh in this model.

Motorola Edge 20 LiteMotorola Edge 20 Lite

The Motorola Edge 20 Lite is the most budget-oriented of the trio, and it packs the MediaTek Dimensity 720 in place of a Qualcomm chipset. The ultra-wide camera is also dropped, though the rest of the specifications manage to stay mostly the same. The display refresh rate drops down to 90Hz, but it’s still HDR10+ and full HD+. The battery is slightly bigger at 5000mAh, which is nice.


Software

In a communication blunder, Motorola initially told Android Authority that the company will only guarantee one major software update and two years of security updates, but they have since backtracked and told the publication that the Motorola Edge 20 series will get two major OS updates. That means the Motorola Edge 20 series will get updates to Android 12 and Android 13. Two years of OS updates is a lot more reasonable than one year, especially given the price of these phones, though it’s certainly nowhere near the best.

All three devices are launching with support for Motorola’s “Ready For” platform, which is the company’s equivalent to Samsung DeX.


Pricing and availability

The Motorola Edge 20 series will be available for purchase in Europe in the following configurations:

  • Motorola Edge 20 Pro: Available August at £649.99/€699.99 in Midnight Blue, Blue Vegan Leather, or Iridescent White
  • Motorola Edge 20: Available August at £429.99/€499.99 in Frosted Gray, Frosted Emerald, or Frosted White
  • Motorola Edge 20 Lite: Available September at £299.99/€349.99 in Lagoon Green or Electric Graphite

The Motorola Edge 20 series is also coming to Asia and Latin America. In the Middle East, the Edge 20 Lite and Pro models will be available. One of these devices will come to North America this fall, though Motorola hasn’t confirmed yet which one will make it stateside.
