We are waiting for the Motorola Edge 2 to appear at some point this year, and thanks to a very well-connected source, we now have a few key details about it – including screen sizes, processors, and RAM and storage configurations.
Specifications are taken from the generally reliable Evan blass, which says four Motorola Edge 2 models are on the way, codenamed Pstar, Kyoto and Berlin – the fourth being a Berlin variant modified for the US market.
This US model apparently comes via Verizon and will feature a 6.78-inch, 2460 x 1080 pixel 120Hz display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor, 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of internal storage, and a triple lens. 108MP + 8MP + 2PM rear camera with wide angle capabilities. The battery capacity is 5,000 mAh.
The global version of the Berlin phone would come with a 6.67-inch, 2400 x 1080 pixel display at 120Hz, along with the same processor, RAM, and storage options. The battery capacity is smaller at 4000mAh, and the rear camera is different: this is a 108MP + 16MP + 8MP triple lens model with wide angle mode and 3x optical zoom.
Details on the different models that will make up the second generation Motorola Edge family. (I’m told that PStar may be another codename for the device also known as Sierra.)

Then the Pstar model, apparently boasting a 6.67-inch, 2400 x 1080-pixel 120Hz display, a higher Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, a 4,500mAh battery, and a 108MP + 16MP + 8MP triple-lens rear camera with large angle and 5x optics possibility of zooming. You will be able to get it with 6 GB, 8 GB or 12 GB of RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of storage.
Finally, we have what appears to be Kyoto’s budget model – a 2400 x 1080 pixel display at 90Hz of unspecified size, a MediaTek Dimensity 720 processor, 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a 108MP + 8MP + 2MP triple lens rear camera with wide angle function and 5000mAh capacity battery.
It would appear that the Pstar model is the more top-of-the-line of the four, although it’s not quite the high-end flagship that the Motorola Edge Plus of last year was. This phone and the Motorola Edge has shown that the manufacturer is moving away from the budget and mid-range handsets it usually sells.
Since these phones launched in May 2020, sequels are a bit late at this point, so we expect to see them anytime from now on. There haven’t been a lot of leaks and rumors about the handsets so far, in addition to their code names.
