Android version and market relevance

The company Motorola in August 2021 officially announced its new smartphone Motorola Edge (2021) in the series of mobile devices Motorola Edge. In our subjective opinion, this year one of the important parameters for smartphones has become support for 5G networks, and this new model has received such a characteristic. As well as many other smartphones with support for 5G networks in our catalog.

“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 11, which did not receive any version updates.

Screen, body and battery

The case Motorola Edge (2021) has got interesting features: very thin side frames, cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors, protection from dust and water (in the standards allowed by the standard, the smartphone can be influenced by water, submerged, etc.).

The screen Motorola Edge (2021) is made using the IPS LCD technology, has a diagonal 6.7 inches and refresh rate 144 Hz. If the smoothness of the interface is important for you (especially in mobile games), then you need to choose smartphones with screens that have a refresh rate higher than 120 times per second. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 9 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 5 000 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 32 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment good cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 108 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Motorola Edge (2021). The smartphone received 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 778G 5G (6 nm). RAM is built-in 8 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 256 GB. This is the only option that is produced by the manufacturer. But memory cards, unfortunately, with this smartphone, you can not use, because the manufacturer did not provide for them a slot.

Price for Motorola Edge (2021): buy or not to buy?

So this is Motorola Edge (2021) after the official announcement. This novelty hit the top, the most flagship segment of smartphones.

Buy Motorola Edge (2021) you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  September 2021. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $500 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is is just a huge screen, and the camera is sooooo cool, and the frontcamera is also very cool.
