Familiar Design for Moto X40
Motorola is known for releasing fantastic budget and upper-midrange Android devices but they tend to go unnoticed by the public eye. One of these under-the-radar phones is the Moto X40, which made its debut in China back in December. However, the launch of this phone for the international market seems imminent and leaked renders have surfaced, giving us a glimpse of what to expect.
It appears that the Moto X40 Pro might be renamed as the Edge 40 Pro for other countries and is set to become Motorola’s first phone to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Thanks to Evan Blass, a Twitter leaker, we now have a look at the potential design of the phone.
The design seems to remain the same as the X40 that was exclusively launched in China, with a curved display that wraps around the vertical edges, a square camera bump with a triple-camera setup that has “50MP” branding, and very thin bezels surrounding the display. The Moto Edge 40 Pro may borrow its Chinese sibling’s 6.67-inch FHD+ OLED screen that has a smooth refresh rate of 165Hz, and is IP68 water and dust resistant, while having a USB-C port.
If the dimensions of the Moto Edge 40 Pro remain the same then it’s likely to measure 6.35 × 2.9 × 0.33 inches and weigh a mere 7.02 ounces. A 4,600Ah battery is expected to provide sufficient screen-on time while 125W wired fast charging may be standard, along with support for 15W wireless and reverse wireless charging. The camera setup is expected to feature a primary 50MP f/1.9 camera with OIS, another 50MP ultrawide, and a 12MP macro telephoto lens, and a 60MP front-facing camera for selfies.
In Motorola’s product line, the Edge 40 Pro may be marketed as the successor to the Edge 30 Pro that was launched in 2022 in the USA as the Edge+. While the launch date for this phone has yet to be confirmed, we hope to see it in person soon.
