Motorola is set to launch three smartphones in India on September 8. The upcoming handsets will be part of the Motorola Edge series, according to the company. Motorola recently launched its latest smartphone called the Edge 2022 for US and Canadian markets. It is the first phone to debut with MediaTek's new Dimensity 1050 SoC under the hood and was priced at $499.99 (roughly Rs. 40,000), which pushed the device into the premium segment compared to its predecessor which was a mid-range device.
The company put up a teaser on its official social media channels revealing that three new smartphones from its Edge series will soon be launched in India. The teaser does not reveal which models will be announced, nor does it provide any hints about the upcoming smartphones, but it does reveal a launch date that is set for September 8.
There plenty of possible handsets that could make their way to India, including the recently launched Moto X30 Pro and the Moto S30 Pro, both of which were recently announced in China alongside the new Moto Razr 2022.
While the Motorola Razr 2022 is currently only on sale in China, the Lenovo-owned smartphone brand could bring the Moto X30 Pro and the Moto S30 Pro to India after rebranding it to the Edge series, something which the company has done in the past.
