OK. The Motorola Edge 20 Pro is not quite the flagship, flagship. It is not rocking the SD888 or 888+, but it does get a fairly decent flagship-level chip, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870.
On top of that, the Motorola Edge 20 Pro touts a new 108 MP main camera which not a lot of smartphones have. This camera further features Ultra Pixel technology where every nine pixels is combined into one large “ultra pixel” which improves light sensitivity by 9x and therefore, better low light imaging performance.
There is also an ultrawide-angle lens with built-in Macro Vision for capturing 4x more of the scene in a frame while Macro Vision lets you get 5x closer – as close as 3 cm – to the subject in macro photography.
And then’s the star of the show, the periscope-style telephoto lens – the first in a Motorola device. This lens allows for up to 50x Super Zoom.
For videophiles, you’ll be glad to know that the Motorola Edge 20 Pro is capable of 8K videoing – even though not a lot of TV actually supports it.
Other key features include a 144 Hz 6.7-inch Max Vision OLED display, Wi-Fi 6, 12 GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB UFS 3.1 storage, 32 MP selfie camera, water repellent design, and TurboPower 30 that provides up to 9 hours of power with just 10 minutes of charging.
Finally, the device is powered by “near-stock” Android 11 OS with My UX. The Motorola Edge 20 Pro will be available in select markets this month with a €699.99 (around US$820) sticker.
