After a long wait, Motorola’s new Edge family is now a reality. Three were the models that the company presented, among which we can find the Motorola Edge 20 Pro, the Motorola Edge 20 and, which we will tell you about in this article, the Motorola Edge 20 Lite. The latter is presented as the most economical alternative among them, retaining some characteristics of its older brothers that will make it fully compete in the complicated Android mid-range.

A design in line with the entire range
Aesthetically, the new Motorola Edge 20 Lite features lines that are not at all surprising within the Motorola family of products. We continue to keep the brand’s logo in its central part, and we find a generously sized camera module that is gaining prominence in the design, keeping the same color as the back of the device.
And, speaking of color, the American firm has decided to equip its Lite model with two finishes, among which we can see an Electric Graphite and Lagoon Green color, that is to say black and green.
Other details that catch our attention are the inclusion of a 3.5mm jack at the bottom next to the USB-C connection, a fingerprint reader on the release button and even a resistance to the water and dustproof which achieves IP52 certification.
Looking at the panel chosen to mount on this Lite model, we find a screen with OLED technology, something not too common in these price ranges, accompanied by a Full HD + resolution, a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz and even compatibility with HDR10 +. This shows good use of its side frames thanks to the use of the hole in the screen for its front camera.
Mediatek processor in charge of operations
One of the big differences that we will find compared to its big brothers will be the choice of processor. In this case we have a chipset signed by Mediatek, in particular the Dimensity 720 5G, which comes with a single variant of 8 GB of RAM with 128 GB of internal storage expandable with micro SD cards up to 512 GB.
Another interesting aspect is that we have 5G connectivity, which is important considering the price of the product, in addition to a generous battery with a capacity of 5000mAh compatible with fast charging up to 30W of power.
Combined with this hardware we will have available the latest version of the operating system, Android 11, which, as Motorola is used to us, will come with some additional features while maintaining the original aesthetics of this software.
Motorola does not forget the 108 megapixels of the Lite model
One of the big surprises to be found in the cheapest phone in the Motorola Edge 20 family is the choice of the same 108-megapixel sensor found in its brethren. It seems that Motorola does not want to leave out the photographic section in this device, so, at least on paper, we will find an identical result compared to the standard and pro models. To complete this section, the company has equipped the Edge 20 Lite with the following sensors:
108-megapixel main sensor with f / 1.9 aperture lens Wide-angle with 16-megapixel sensor and f / 2.2 aperture lens 2-megapixel depth sensor 32-megapixel front camera with f / 2.25 aperture
Motorola Edge 20 Lite price and availability
