The popular Motorola Edge is now on its third generation with the release of the 2022 variant.
One bragging right that the Motorola Edge 2022 have is being the first to use the MediaTek Dimensity 1050 processor. It’s no flagship, but should be powerful enough to provide decent performance on midrange phones like this one.
The 6nm octa-core chip consists of two Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.5GHz and six Cortex-A55 clocked at 2.0GHz. It is paired with a Mali-G610 MC3 GPU and provides sub-6GHz 5G connectivity.
For RAM, we have 8GB worth of it, while the storage is at 256GB and you should be satisfied with it since it doesn’t come with a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The battery has a 5,000mAh capacity, complete with a 30W TurboPower charging and 15W wireless charging. It also comes with 5W reverse charging for your accessories.
On the front, we have a pretty packed display. It is quite large at 6.6-inches, uses a vibrant OLED panel with 10-bit color and HDR10+ support, and has a speedy 144Hz refresh rate.
The back has a triple camera setup, which is led by a sharp 50-megapixel main shooter complete with optical image stabilization. Below it is the 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens that can also do macro shots. Finally, we have the obligatory depth sensor.
Selfies and video calls are then handled by the 32-megapixel front-facing camera. Also on the front is the under-display fingerprint scanner, and a slightly-tweaked Android 12 operating system displayed on the screen.
The official price and availability details of the Motorola Edge 2022 are yet to be announced but they should first be available in the United States.
