THE Motorola prepares for the launch of several cell phones from the Motorola Edge line — and one of them had already been partially unveiled: the Motorola Edge 20 Lite, which was discovered under codename “Kyoto”. Now, a new leak seems to have revealed the technical data of four models: the Kyoto itself, the Motorola “Pstar” and two versions of Motorola “Berlin”.
The information is from the well-known Evan Blass, who has a good record of hitting predictions about the smartphone industry. In a recent tweet, Evleaks revealed a table with specifications of the aforementioned models. The frame shows details about screen, processor, RAM memory, battery and more.
Details about the various models which will compose the second-gen Motorola Edge family. (I’m told that PStar may be an alternate codename for the device also referred to as the Sierras.)

Check out, below, everything we know so far about the supposed cell phones of the Motorola Edge line.
Motorola “Kyoto”, or Motorola Edge 20 Lite
As already revealed, the Motorola “Kyoto”, or Edge 20 Lite, should arrive with a rear 108 MP triple camera. Now, we have new specifications, which also detail the other lenses, one with an 8 MP sensor (hybrid, ultrawide and macro) and another with 2 MP (depth). Selfies would be made with 32 megapixels.
According to Evan Blass, the phone has a Full HD+ screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate, a MediaTek Dimensity 720 chip and 6 or 8 GB RAM, depending on the market.
The Motorola Edge 20 Lite is expected to have 128GB of storage, which is industry standard, and a 5,000 mAh battery. It would come out of the factory in the colors “Iron” and “Cosmo”.
According to the leak, there are two Berlin variants — one global and one US, called “Berlin NA”. They differ by screen size, battery and rear camera set.
The North American model would have a 6.78” display against 6.67” for the global one. Both would have Full HD+ resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate, for smoother graphics and smoother transitions.
In the rear cameras, the 108 MP main sensor would be present in both variants. However, while the US model would have a hybrid lens (ultrawide and macro) with 8 MP, while the global one would bring a higher resolution sensor, 16 MP, for this function.
The 2 MP depth sensor on the “Berlin NA” would be replaced by an 8 MP telephoto lens on the “Berlin” for up to 3x optical zoom. On the front camera, everything is the same: 32 megapixels.
Moving on to battery capacity, we would have 5,000 mAh in the North American variant and 4,000 mAh in the global.
The amount of RAM, storage space and chips would be the same: 6/8GB, 128/256GB and Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, respectively.
Finally, the Motorola “Pstar”, with model number “XT2153-1” should be the most advanced smartphone of the new crop, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip. It should have options of 6, 8 or 12 GB of RAM memory, and 128 or 256 GB of storage.
Rumors indicate that the device is intended for markets in Asia, Europe, Australia, India and Latin America. Despite that, its screen resembles the “Berlin”, with 6.67 inches and Full HD+ resolution, in addition to a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Like all the other models in the lineup, the main camera is 108 MP. The ultrawide lens is upgraded to a 16MP sensor (it’s also capable of taking macro shots), and the last rear lens is an 8MP telephoto lens that allows up to 5x zoom.
In China, the Motorola “Pstar” must have a 16 MP front camera, and in other markets, 32 MP.
The 4,500 mAh battery is a reduction compared to the “Berlin NA”. But if we consider that the Pstar chip is more efficient, maybe in the end, they are even. Also, the “Pstar” must come with Ready For support, which allows you to use your smartphone as a desktop.
The new models of the Motorola Edge line have not yet been officially announced, but this is expected to happen in the second half. Apparently, smartphones will come with Android 11 installed at the factory — it remains to be seen whether Motorola will maintain the policy of tight updates of the latest wave of cell phones.
