Motorola Edge 20 Pro is set to launch in India today, but the company accidentally divulged a key detail about the phone ahead of its unveiling. In August, Motorola brought two new mid-range smartphones including the Edge 20 and Edge 20 Fusion in into the Indian market. Later, the company revealed that it is gearing up to launch the Edge 20 Pro in the country soon.
The more powerful Motorola Edge 20 Pro smartphone’s launch date was set for October 1. However, Motorola accidentally divulged the phone’s India pricing even before it went official in the country. On top of that, the phone has been subject to several leaks. Last month, Flipkart revealed the phone’s specifications via a dedicated microsite for the Motorola Edge 20 Pro.
