The Motorola Edge 20 Fusion is available today in Electric Graphite and Cyber Teal from Motorola and Lenovo's online stores, along with JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks, The Good Guys, Harvey Norman, Big W (Online) and Mobiliciti, along with a planned September arrival at Vodafone.
Meanwhile, the Motorola g50 5G is on sale now in Meteorite Grey at all the same stores (except for Harvey Norman) and will also drop at Vodafone by the end September.
For those after something a little less budget, Motorola's mid-range Edge 20 (AU$699) and Edge 20 Pro (AU$899) are set to land in Australian stores this September sporting more premium features, such as 8K recording on the Edge 20 Pro and SuperZoom on the Edge 20.
