The company recently announced to launch Motorola Edge 20, Edge 20 Lite, and Edge 20 Pro in the global market. They come with high refresh rate displays, 108MP triple cameras, and more.
So, before going to the price and availability of the new Motorola Edge devices, let’s take a quick look at their key specs and features individually.
