After a long time, Motorola comes with a new smartphone named Motorola Edge 2021 that has been launched in the USA market. We have seen this Motorola Edge series from last year with an edge-to-edge curved display. But this time the company has decided to discontinue the curved screen that looks more premium. The company has given a flat-screen with slim bezels on the sides with a huge chin at the bottom. The pone looks not so good as comparing the previous version of the edge series smartphone. The Motorola Edge 2021 also comes with a 144Hz refresh rate display for gaming like PUBG Mobile, BGMI, CODM, Fortnite Mobile. The game requires a higher refresh rate to enhance the gaming experience. The company announced that the display is 60 percent more faster than the previous generation of Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge Plus.
