PRESS RELEASE

To stand apart in the market, we wanted to build a new device that has everything consumers care about most. The result is a state-of-the-art smartphone that delivers advanced technology in every category that matters, including powerhouse 5G performance, a dynamic and immersive display, a photography experience like no other, audio that’s completely unmatched, and the largest battery in its class.1 Simply put, motorola edge is the phone you’ve been waiting for. 

motorola edge was built for future-proofed 5G performance, connecting you with sub-6 GHz networks so you can be ready for the next generation of wireless technology with a phone that’s built for tomorrow. Qualcomm’s SnapdragonTM 765 Mobile Platform provides ultra-fast performance and instant responsiveness for browsing, watching videos, or playing games. 6 GB memory and 128 GB of storage will keep your device running smoothly so you can take full advantage of the experiences enabled by 5G.2

With the motorola edge, we are introducing a  display like never before. Our brand new Endless Edge display wraps nearly 90-degrees around both sides of the device and stretches 6.7 inches to create an immersive viewing experience. Perfect for entertainment, the cinematic 21:9 screen ratio is the default aspect for major films and tv shows. The display is gorgeous, capable of showing a billion shades of color and offering incredibly dynamic picture quality with HDR10. With a 90Hz screen refresh rate that you’ll love, the screen boasts exceptionally smooth movement so every scroll and swipe looks amazing.

The Endless Edge display isn’t just beautiful, it’s functional too. The curved screen and narrow width on the motorola edge provide the optimal proportions for one-handed use and navigation, making it easy to reach across the device without fumbling. Edge Touch, part of our new My UX suite of software features, allows you to customize new ways to interact with your device. Just swipe up or down on the edge to pull down notifications or switch apps. The display edges also come in handy when your phone isn’t in your hand, lighting up to show battery charging status, incoming calls, alarms, and notifications from across the room. In the new Moto Game Time, gamers can turn the phone sideways and use two additional, customizable buttons on the top edge of the screen for console-like four finger gameplay. 

Mobile entertainment is on the rise, with mobile video consumption rising by 100% year over year.3 Our consumer research highlights consumers are using their phone's loudspeakers the majority of the time when watching their favorite content. motorola edge has the loudest, most powerful stereo speakers in a smartphone ever, plus precision tuning for professional-quality sonic performance and deeper, fuller sound.4 The audio tuning technology comes from Waves, recipient of a Technical GRAMMY® Award, to make your music, videos, and phone calls sound louder and clearer than ever. Born from recording studios and used by sound engineers, music, film & TV producers and broadcasters, Waves delivers professional-quality sonic performance on smartphone speakers in a way that’s never been done before.

The versatile triple camera system gives you a lens for every shot.  The 64MP sensor main camera is the highest camera resolution in its class.1 With Quad Pixel technology, this sensor has 4x the light sensitivity to capture incredibly clear and crisp photos in all lighting conditions. Capture more from far away with high-res optical zoom on the 8MP telephoto lens, and snap more of the scene with our 16MP ultra-wide angle lens, or get up close and personal with Macro Vision gets you 5x closer to the subject for extreme close-up shots.   

All this performance and 5G power isn’t worth much if you’re constantly running out of battery. We packed a 4500 mAh battery into this device, the largest battery in its class,1 to go up to two days without plugging in.5 For added convenience, motorola edge features TurboPowerTM charging that gives you hours of power in just minutes so you can recharge in no time.6

We’re committed to bringing intuitive software experiences to our consumers. There are no clunky software skins, no duplicate apps - just near-stock Android™ 10. We  choose to build upon Android with unique ways to enhance customers’ mobile experience. That’s why with the motorola edge family, we’re introducing My UX, allowing users to customize their experience to be even more intuitive and personal, so it works the way they want.  And it’s all in one place, the Moto app!    

My UX includes all the great moto experiences customers have come to know and love, from turning on the flashlight with a simple chop gesture to launching the camera with the twist of a wrist. And with motorola edge, in addition to the new edge display interactions, My UX let’s users take music, videos and games to the next level with custom settings and advanced controls. Users can even create their own device themes by choosing from unique fonts, colors, icon shapes, and fingerprint sensor animations, so their phone is one in a million.  My UX truly puts users in control of their mobile experience.

motorola edge is the phone you’ve been waiting for if you want to switch to a supercharged 5G device for less. From the beginning, motorola edge has always been about pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for performance and design, building on our expertise, and solving key pain points for consumers by putting into practice everything we’ve learned through our extensive consumer research. The motorola edge family is the best of the best, but this is also just the beginning of what we have to offer.
