Motorola Edge (2024) is official: New Quick Button, fast charging and AI features
Motorola is one of the companies that makes the widest range of Android smartphones. It is often recognized for delivering reliable performance at a competitive price. The new Edge (2024) is no exception to this. It comes with several upgrades, and as the year suggests, it has AI on board.

People often want a phone that lasts all day, takes great pics, and helps them get stuff done, you know, something that fits their life. Well, the Motorola Edge (2024) just landed in North America with a 50MP camera system that promises great results in low light, plus large battery and fast 68W charging. This phone also has a thin, endless-edge design, all for a mid-range price. 

Motorola Edge (2024) design and display




The all-new Motorola Edge (2024) boasts a near-borderless curved display for a comfortable grip. Wrapped in a stylish, vegan leather back in Midnight Blue, the Edge (2024) offers a premium aesthetic without the premium price tag.

The Motorola Edge (2024) is built tough with an IP68 rating. This means it can shrug off dust and even survive unexpected dips in water, like a spilled drink or a quick dunk.

The Motorola Edge (2024) packs a new side button called the "Quick Button." This handy feature lets you launch your go-to app or even trigger a specific action within an app with a single press. Need to check messages fast? Launch your favorite messaging app. Want to jump straight to social media? The Quick Button can handle that, too.

 

The Motorola Edge (2024) maintains the same expansive 6.6-inch endless edge display found on its predecessor, the Edge (2023).



The display offers FHD+ resolution and boasts a smooth 144Hz refresh rate that intelligently adjusts to optimize battery life. For an even more captivating experience, the display is complemented by Dolby Atmos technology, promising to deliver rich and detailed sound.

To capture stunning images in low-light conditions, the Edge (2024) features a combination of Motorola's Auto Night Vision technology and Sony's LYTIA 700C image sensor. 

Shaky hands won't ruin your photos, either. The Edge (2024) features both Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to combat minor hand movements and Adaptive Stabilization powered by AI. This AI-powered system analyzes camera movement and fine-tunes stabilization for blur-free photos and videos.

  • Magic Editor: Using generative AI, this editor makes it easy to do complex photo edits, like repositioning your subject or turning the sky from gray to blue
  • Magic Eraser: Allows you to select and erase subjects from the photo (no more photobombers)
  • Photo Unblur: Clears up blurry photos
  • Google Auto Enhance: Automatically improves color and lighting.
