According to the XDA Developers, the Motorola Edge Lite should come with the Snapdragon 765 chip. Taking into account that the standard Edge comes with the Snapdragon 765G, version of the 765 optimized for games, the cheapest device should not lose so much in performance in everyday tasks. It must also have 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM, same options as the traditional Edge, and 64 GB or 128 GB for storage.
The screen would also be practically identical, with the same 6.7 inches, FullHD + resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate.
What changes, then? The cameras would have lower resolution sensors: the camera remains quadruple, but the main sensor for the Edge Lite would be 48 megapixels, against 64 megapixels for the Edge and 108 megapixels for the Edge +. At the front, it would bring a dual camera, consisting of 8 and 2 megapixel sensors, in place of the Edge’s single 25 megapixel camera.
The battery would even be a little bigger, with 4,800 mAh, and would have an 18 W charger – the Edge has 4,500 mAh and a 15 W charger. In addition, the Snapdragon 765 chip has a 5G modem, which means that Motorola can bring the new connection to a premium intermediate device for the first time. Perhaps this is not very interesting in Brazil, since the 5G auction has not yet been held in the country.
According to Android Central, Motorola is preparing two different models of the Edge Lite: the XT2075-1, aimed at the American market and exclusive to the operator Verizon, and the XT2075-3, aimed at the international market, including Europe, Japan, the Middle East and Latin America.
For now, Motorola has said nothing about the launch of Edge and Edge + in Brazil. In Mexico, to take an example from another Latin American country, the line was launched last week. If it’s any indication, the arrival of the devices in the Mexican market generally coincides with the launch here, so we may have news soon.
