Motorola is reportedly working on a cheaper 5G smartphone which is said to run on either Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G or Snapdragon 675 processor. Dubbed as Moto Edge Lite, the smartphone could launch with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage.

The upcoming Lite phone will join Motorola’s recent Edge Plus and Edge phones. The two new phones have 128GB built-in storage and a 4,500mAh battery. According to reports, Motorola Edge Lite could come with a slightly bigger 4,700mAh battery.

The latest leak comes shortly after leakster Mukul Sharma spotted a new Motorola phone on a European website. The listed specs of the phone, bearing model number XT2075-3, match the new information – 5G connectivity, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.

More details about the phone are not available yet but speculations are it will have more or less same specifications as the Moto Edge phones.

Motorola’s Moto Edge+ launched in India last month for 74,999. The Edge+ boasts of high-end specifications such as 90Hz display, 5G, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, and 108-megapixel camera.

The cheaper Edge phone has Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor, 6GB of RAM, 64-megapixel camera. It also has a 90Hz display.

That said, Motorola’s affordable 5G phone could take on Apple’s new iPhone SE 2020 and Samsung’s 5G-enabled Galaxy A71.
