Motorola Edge 20, Lite and Pro: Lenovo introduces a new mobile phone trio


Lenovo is launching three new smartphones under the Motorola label: The basic model is called Edge 20, and there is also a cheaper Lite version and a more expensive Pro version. The Edge 20 will be available from August for 700 euros, the standard model will also be available in August and cost 500 euros. Lenovo will not sell the Lite version until September, which costs 350 euros. All three phones come with Android 11 on the market.

According to Lenovo, the Motorola Edge 20 Pro comes with a 108-megapixel main camera that can add up to nine pixels for better light sensitivity. There is also an ultra-wide-angle and a macro lens. The camera quartet is completed by a telephoto lens with 50x zoom. The Motorola Edge 20 Pro can also record videos in 8K resolution.

Lenovo’s Edge 20 Pro has a 6.7-inch OLED display that meets the requirements of the HDR10 + standard. With a high refresh rate of 144 Hertz, it can also play certain content more smoothly than the screens of many older cell phones, which were mostly limited to 60 Hertz. The Lenovo smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 870, the RAM is 12 GB. The mobile phone also has 256 GB of storage space. The Edge 20 Pro can access the mobile internet via the 5G standard.

The standard version of the Edge 20 also supports 5G and has the large 108-megapixel main sensor plus additional ultra-wide-angle, macro and telephoto lenses. The display is also 6.7 inches and supports refresh rates of up to 144 Hertz. There are differences, for example, in the processor: The Edge 20 has a Snapdragon 778G, which is slightly weaker than the 870 of the more expensive model. The main memory is also a bit smaller at 8 GB, but this should hardly be noticeable in everyday use.

In the Lite version of the Motorola Edge 20, Lenovo uses a MediaTek chipset that also supports 5G. Here, too, the display corresponds to the two more expensive models – for 350 euros you get a large OLED screen with a high refresh rate. The main memory is 8 GB, the battery with 5000 mAh is even larger than in the standard version.
