Motorola launches new Edge range of smartphones with Ready For platform
Motorola has launched its new Edge range of mid-tier smartphones which are all 5G compatible and boasting an impressively thin design, large OLED displays and advanced camera systems at up to 108-megapixels.
They also include Motorola’s new Ready For platform which allows customers to amplify their experience with the device by linking wirelessly to a TV or a PC.
The company also unveiled the moto g50 – a sub $400 smartphone that is also 5G.
“So much has changed in the world recently, so with the latest Motorola edge family, it was important for us to bring consumers what they need most,” said Kurt Bonnici, Head of Motorola ANZ.
“Motorola has always worked to democratise cutting-edge technology to empower people in their daily lives.
“With this philosophy, these new devices go beyond the previous generation of edge in nearly every category to bring incredible new features at more accessible price points.
“In addition, the smartphone is now more than just a communication tool. It is the hub for information, entertainment, productivity and content creation.
“Motorola’s new Ready For platform elevates these experiences to be more immersive and productive by putting the power in the consumer’s hands to realise the full potential of their device.”
