Motorola Edge 20 and Motorola Edge 20 Fusion are being teased to launch in India soon. The Lenovo-owned company is promoting the launch on its social media channels. While the Motorola Edge 20 was a part of the Motorola Edge 20 series that initially arrived in Europe last month, the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion is expected to be a rebranded Motorola Edge 20 Lite, which was launched alongside the Motorola Edge 20 and Motorola Edge 20 Pro. Both Motorola Edge 20 and Motorola Edge 20 Fusion are expected to come with the company's proprietary skin on top of Android 11.
The Motorola India accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have started teasing the launch of the Motorola Edge 20 and Motorola Edge 20 Fusion in the country. The company has changed the cover image on its social media accounts to confirm the arrival of the two new Motorola phones. It also appears that Motorola has decided to skip the Edge 20 Pro from its Edge series coming to the Indian market.
Motorola Edge 20, Motorola Edge 20 Fusion price in India (expected)
Motorola Edge 20 price in India is yet to be revealed, though the phone could be priced similar to what was announced in Europe last month. The phone came at a starting price of EUR 499.99 (roughly Rs. 43,600) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. It also comes in Frosted Onyx and Frosted Pearl colours.
The Motorola Edge 20 Fusion, on the other hand, is expected to be the rebadged Motorola Edge 20 Lite that came to Europe at EUR 349.99 (Rs. 30,500) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage model and features Electric Graphite and Lagoon Green colours.
Originally, the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion was expected to be the fourth model in the Motorola Edge 20 series after the Motorola Edge 20, Edge 20 Pro, and Edge 20 Lite and was speculated to be limited to the US. However, it appears that the company has decided to bring the new model first to the Indian market.
Motorola had not provided the India launch date of the Edge 20 series at the time of filing this story. However, Gadgets 360 has reached out to the company for the details and will update this space when it responds.
