Motorola is rumored to be working on a bunch of Edge-series smartphones with codenames Sierra, Berlin, Berlin NA, and Kyoto. A fresh leak from tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks has now revealed the commercial name for one of these phones. He has further mentioned two other smartphones that are part of different lineups.
Blass has tweeted that the "Kyoto" smartphone will be released as the Motorola Edge 20 Lite. It will become the fourth member of the series that currently has Motorola Edge, Motorola Edge+, and Motorola Edge S. The name suggests it will be an affordable variant with toned-down specifications as compared to other members of the lineup.
The other two phones listed in the tweet are Motorola G60S and Motorola G50 5G. These are tipped to be codenamed Lisbon and Saipan respectively. The first phone is expected to be an enhanced variant of the Moto G60 launched two months ago. That phone arrived with a 120Hz display, Snapdragon 732G processor, 108MP quad cameras, and a huge 6,000mAh battery.
Motorola "Kyoto" is the Edge 20 Lite— Evan Blass (@evleaks) June 21, 2021
Motorola "Lisbon" is the G60S
Motorola "Saipan" is the G50 5G
It is important to note that Motorola already has a phone named Moto G50 5G. It was announced earlier this year with Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 and was codenamed "Ibiza". It seems like the upcoming "Saipan" model could be meant for different markets with slight changes or it might feature a different processor altogether. We will have to wait to find answers but as of now, there are no words on the possible release timelines for any of these devices.
