Motorola Edge 2022 enters the market and the name suggests that this smartphone has a certain edge for the users at a low cost. This is credited to be the first 5G smartphone in the US market with a MediaTek Dimensity 1050 chipset and if you do not already have an idea, this was one of the most awaited chipsets in recent times.

So Motorola took this opportunity to launch a smart device and this one comes with some really smart features as well. Here are some of the major features of the new Motorola Edge 2022 that you ought to know before you go for it:

  • Motorola Edge 2022 is a slim and sleek device that measures just 8mm in size and weighs about 170g. The smartphone comes with a glass front, plastic frame, and plastic back and has a water-repellent design. It occurs in a single gray color.
  • It has a really good display as well. You get a 6.6-inch OLED support that comes with a 144Hz display refresh rate and has HDR10+ support as well. Besides, the smartphone also comes with a 1080p display resolution and about 88.1 percent screen to body ratio. I think the display of this smartphone is really good for regular users as well as gamers.
  • The smartphone uses a MediaTek Dimensity 1050 chipset which is 6nm in size with an octa-core structure and is clocked at 2.5GHz. Besides, it comes with an ARM Mali-G610 MC3 support as well. This Mediatek chipset was awaited because it is the first one from the brand with dual-mm Wave and Sub 6GHz connectivity features. So you can expect really good connectivity without breaking your bank.
  • The smartphone comes supported by Stock Android 12 and as per the updates by Motorola, you will get the Android 13 update very soon. And having a device with Stock Android that makes sure you stay away from unwanted ads and Bloatware is something really cool.
  • The camera section of the smartphone is again a highlight of the device. You get a 50MP main camera with a 13MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP depth sensor as well with the device. Besides, this triple rear camera setup has an LED flash and gyro-EIS feature as well to ensure that you get really good images even in the dark. Not to forget that it has as much as a 32MP front camera that comes with HDR support and it can shoot really good selfies and offer you great video calls as well.
  • As of now, the smartphone has been launched in just a single variant and it comes with 8GB RAM support and 256GB internal storage as well. So you can do pretty well with these features, even if you like to play a lot of games or store them on your smartphone.
  • The device has a powerful 5000mAh battery which will definitely last a long period of time and it will also get charged quickly because it comes with 30W fast charging support as well. I think the charging support could have been slightly better, but you also get a 15W fast wireless charging support and even 5W reverse charging support as well.
  • The device comes with an under-display fingerprint sensor which is optical in nature and it also comes with a powerful face unlock feature. Besides, you get USB Type-C 2.0, USB On-The-Go, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, and other interesting features as well with the device.

So you can say that Motorola Edge 2022 is a complete package for the users and occurs with some really interesting specs at a cost of just $499. Do you think this smartphone will do well at the cost it takes?
