Why the Motorola Edge (2023) is your next smartphone
The Motorola Edge (2023) gains more modern exterior updates dubbed as “fluid design” and a sturdier build by incorporating an aluminum enclosure and vegan leather on the back. Meanwhile, the 6.6-inch OLED screen now has curvier edges and wrapped with thinner bezels. It also has an IP68 dust and water resistance, which is a big jump from the water-repellent rating.
While the Edge (2023) has a smaller battery, it does feature a newer Dimensity 7030 chipset, which is then paired with larger 8 GB RAM and 256 GB on-board storage. Additionally, the charging is improved with 68 watts or more than double of the 30 watts on its predecessor.
When it comes to imaging, Motorola gave the Edge (2023) the same dual camera helmed by a 50 MP primary shooter and backed by a 13 MP ultrawide. The selfie camera is also unchanged with a 32 MP sensor, but it is now capable of recording 4K videos.
Unlike on previous Edge generations, the 2023 model does get the Moto Ready For support. This means you can plug or connect wirelessly the handset to monitors and TVs and even add controllers when gaming on big screens or turn the Edge (2023) into a webcam during video calls.
