Motorola had a slow year in 2020 with just a few smartphone launches, but this year, the company wants to catch up with the competition. The company already launched a bunch of smartphones under the mid-range segment this year. According to a recent report, it is preparing a new batch of smartphones to release in the second half of 2021. Among leaked codenames, we have devices such as Motorola Edge Berlin, Motorola Edge Kyoto, and the Motorola Edge Pstar. Along with these codenames, some of the specifications for each respective device have leaked. Now, tipster Evan Blass has revealed that the Motorola Kyoto is, in fact, the Motorola Edge 20 Lite. Moreover, the mentions that the Motorola Lisbon and Motorola Saipan will reach the market as Motorola G60S and Motorola G50 5G, respectively.

Motorola Edge 20 Lite, Motorola G60S and Motorola G50 5G
As per the new report, the Motorola Edge 20 Lite will come with an impressive camera setup featuring a 108MP primary camera. The 108MP shooter will come alongside an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP depth sensor. Selfies will also be pretty crisp thanks to a 32MP selfie snapper. Unfortunately, the remaining specifications such as display size, hardware details, and battery capacity are unknown at the moment. The same can be said about the Moto G60S and Motorola G50 5G. Apart from the marketing names, we don’t know much about these devices. However, we can expect the G60S to be an incremental upgrade over the G60. The G50 5G is a curious case since the original Moto G50 already has 5G capabilities.
For those unaware, the Motorola G50 was released back in March. The device also got its own Motorola Ibiza codename. It flaunts a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen with an HD+ resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels and a 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, the device sports the 5G-ready Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 SoC. It comes with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of Internal Storage. On the software front, the device runs with Android 11 straight out of the box. In terms of optics, the device has a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP depth sensor. At the front, the device features a 13MP camera. The package has a 5,000mAh battery complete with 15W charging. The device costs around 249 Euros across Europe. We are curious to see what will make the new “Moto G50 5G” variant stand against its sibling.
As far as the Motorola Edge 20 Lite is concerned, we suspect that it will be a “Lite” variant for the Motorola Edge 20 series. We’re still waiting for Motorola to unveil new flagships this year after the Moto G100 or Edge S was the closest shot on the high-tier segment. Let’s see if the Edge 20 series will keep popping out in the headlines in the coming months.
