Less than a month after their launch in the global market, the Motorola Edge 20 series launched in India today but unlike the global market, only two phones made it to India. These are the Motorola Edge 20 & the Edge 20 Lite. The Motorola Edge 20 Lite launched in India as the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion and in this article, we will talk in detail about that phone. Apart from the change in name, this phone also gets a performance boost over the global variant in the form of MediaTek Dimensity 800U SOC (the Global variant has Dimensity 720).
Design-wise, there is no difference. The Edge 20 Fusion comes with an iPhone-like camera module on the rear that includes three sensors in it. The fingerprint scanner is on the right side and you get a USB Type-C port along with the headphone jack on the bottom. There is just one speaker on this phone and that’s on the bottom. On the front, you get a flat screen with a hole punch in the middle. The whole phone is made out of polycarbonate.
Speaking of the front, there is a 6.7-inch 10-bit OLED with a 90Hz refresh rate. So, even if the fingerprint scanner is on the side, that doesn’t mean Motorola went for an LCD on this phone. The display has an FHD+ resolution. Under the hood, there is the Dimensity 800U SOC and just to let you know, the global variant has Dimensity 720. So, Motorola made this one major upgrade for the Indian market. The phone comes with 13 5G bands as well.
There is either 6GB or 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB storage that is also expandable via a microSD card.
The three cameras on the back include one 108 Megapixel sensor with an f/1.9 aperture lens, an 8 Megapixel sensor with an ultrawide lens, and a 2 Megapixel depth sensor. You can shoot up to 4K 30fps videos via the rear camera. On the front, you get a 32 Megapixel camera. Finally, the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion has a big 5,000mAh battery and supports 30W fast charging. The 30W adapter comes in the box. The phone runs on Android 11 out of the box. It is a clean, stock Android experience with no bloatware or ads, something that Motorola phones are known for.
Finally, speaking of the pricing for India, the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion comes in two variants. The 6GB + 128GB variant is priced at₹21,499 whereas the 8GB + 128GB variant at₹22,999. You can get your hands on one on the 27th of August and the phone will be available on Flipkart.
