The Motorola Edge 20 Pro is one of the flagship phones launched by Motorola for 2021 and is part of the 2021 Edge trilogy. The Edge 20 Pro is the high-end premium model of the trilogy and comes with amazing features like a bigger battery and an upgraded processor.
The Edge 20 Pro comes with a pre-installed silicone protector case, a 30W adapter, and a type C USB cable.
Design and Display
Like the Edge 20, the Edge 20 Pro has a slick and beautiful finish. Though not as thin as the Edge 20, it feels really light for a premium phone. The device has a 6.7 OLED screen clad with a Gorilla Glass 5.
The 6.7-inch OLED display features 10bits color reproduction and HDR 10+ support with an amazing 144Hz refresh rate and 576 peak touch sampling rate.

The downside is that Motorola did not increase the IP rating of the Edge 20 Pro. The Edge 20 Pro retains the same IP rating that the Edge 20 has, IP52, dust, and water-repellant.
Despite the IP52 rating, the Edge 20 Pro has a good quality build and design and leaves a high-quality impression.
Software and Performance
The Motorola Edge 20 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC and has Android 11 pre-installed. There are also the promised two years android updates. User experience is enhanced by Motorola’s MyUX user interface and the ‘Ready For’ functions which enable one to connect to an external TV or a computer screen wirelessly.

The Motorola Edge 20 Pro packs a 4,500mAh battery capacity, which is more than what’s available on the Edge 20.
