Motorola released the Edge 2022 in August, and we’ve previously reviewed it. The new Motorola Edge 2022 is cheaper and has better specifications and hardware than prior iterations.
The new Motorola Edge 2022 has the latest MediaTek Dimensity 1050 chipset, 6/8GB of RAM, and 128/256GB of storage. The phone has outstanding front and back cameras and supports 30W wired and wireless charging.

Feature-packed Edge 2022
The device is plastic, yet it’s elegant, thin, and light. It has a 6.6-inch FHD+, 144Hz, 10-bit OLED screen. Motorola’s Edge 2022 has a 120Hz refresh rate, which is rare. The device boasts an under-display optical fingerprint scanner and lower bottom bezels.
The Edge 2022 is equipped with MediaTek’s first 5G mmWave SoC, the Dimensity 1050. The phone has 6/128GB and 8/256GB memory choices. The phone comes with Android 12, but the firm will update it to 13.
The rear camera array includes a 50MP f/1.8 primary sensor with PDAF and OIS, a 13MP f/1.5 ultrawide sensor, and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. 32MP f/2.5 front-facing camera. It’s a respectable camera arrangement, and while we don’t expect it to compete with high-end smartphones, we think it will capture critical moments in acceptable lighting. We won’t know until we see the device.
Motorola is recognised for its fast charging and huge batteries, and the 2022 is no exception. The 5,000 mAh battery supports 30W fast wired charging. The phone supports 15W rapid wireless charging and 5W reverse charging. The phone doesn’t come with a charger.
