Motorola Edge 20 and Motorola Edge 20 Fusion were launched in the Indian market a few days ago. The Motorola Edge 20 was all set to go on sale on August 24 while the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion was announced to go on sale on August 27. In a new development, Motorola has now said that the sale of the Motorola Edge 20 model in India has been deferred. The company has not shared details about why the sale date has been postponed. A new sale date will be announced later.
The Lenovo-owned brand announced that the Motorola Edge 20 sale in India has been indefinitely postponed. It will no longer go on sale on August 24 as announced earlier. A new sale date has not been announced yet either. Instead, Motorola said that the Edge 20 will be up for pre-order from August 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 launched alongside will go on sale as planned. Motorola Edge 20 Fusion will be available for purchase via Flipkart and major retail stores from 12pm (noon) on August 27.
“We are glad to see the overwhelming response that we have received from media and consumers for both our recently launched Edge 20 series products. However, due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to defer the sale date for Edge 20, which we will announce shortly,” Motorola said in a statement.
