The Motorola Edge 20 and Motorola Edge 20 Fusion were launched in the Indian market a few days ago. The Motorola Edge 20 was ready to go on sale on August 24th, while the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion was announced to go on sale on August 27th. In a new development, Motorola has already said that the sale of the Motorola Edge 20 model in India has been delayed. The company did not share details about the reason for postponing the sale date. A new sale date will be announced later.
The Lenovo-owned brand has announced that the sale of the Motorola Edge 20 in India has been postponed indefinitely. It will no longer go on sale on August 24th, as previously announced. A new sale date has not yet been announced. Instead, Motorola said the Edge 20 will be on pre-order from Aug. 24 via Flipkart, and a sale date ‘will be announced shortly’.
This only affects the Motorola Edge 20, as the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion that was released next door will go on sale as planned. The Motorola Edge 20 Fusion will be available for purchase via Flipkart and at major retail stores from 12:00 noon on August 27th.
“We are delighted to see the overwhelming response we have received from the media and consumers to our newly released Edge 20 series products. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to postpone the Edge 20 sales date, which we will announce shortly.” Motorola said in a statement.
