Motorola Edge (2022) Overview:

Design and Display

Motorola has not brought drastic changes when it comes to design. Moto Edge (2022) is available in a sleek Mineral Gray color and measures 7.99mm in terms of thickness. The power button and volume rockers are on the right-hand side. Additionally, the Edge is IP52 certified.

For display, Motorola uses a 6.6″ OLED panel with a 144Hz refresh rate. It has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, HDR10+ certification, and a 20:9 aspect ratio. Motorola Edge (2022) has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of an in-display one that was on its predecessor.

Performance

Performance on the Motorola Edge (2022) is handled by the Dimensity 1050. As aforementioned, it is the first phone to ship with this processor. The Dimensity 1050 is based on a 6nm process and comprises two Cortex-A78 clocked at 2.5GHz, and six Cortex-A55 cores with 2.0GHz clock speed. The Mali-G610 GPU handles graphics.

The triple rear camera system on the Motorola Edge (2022) is led by a 50MP sensor with OIS. Accompanying the sensor is a 13MP ultrawide camera with 120-degree FoV which also doubles as a macro shooter. Finally, there is also a depth sensor. For selfies and video conferences, there is a 32MP sensor up front.
