The US-based tech brand has finally unveiled a couple of 5G smartphones in India. The smartphones, Edge 20 and Edge 20 Fusion, will fall in the mid-segment category. The duo is already launched in the global markets and the Edge 20 shares the identical specs with its global fellow. However, the Edge 20 Fusion is a rebranded Edge 20 Lite for the Indian market. The latter was launched in the European market in July.

Comparing the duo, the spec-sheet is quite different on both the smartphones. Edge 20 offers a more premium set of specifications. The latest addition to the mid-segment lineup from Motorola will directly compete with Oppo Reno 6, Realme X7 Max, OnePlus Nord 2, etc.
