Motorola’s Moto X40 will be released globally as the Motorola Edge 40 Pro, according to a Geekbench listing and well-known leakers. Although the smartphone missed its originally scheduled MWC 2023 launch, it is expected to arrive on global shores sooner or later. MySmartPrice has revealed some fascinating information about both the Moto Edge 40 Pro and its less-talked-about sibling, the Moto Edge 40.
The non-Pro version of the Motorola Edge 40 has yet to be released in China, so its global debut may coincide with its Chinese unveiling. It lacks the bells and whistles of the Moto Edge 40 Pro, but it still boasts a respectable 6.5-inch 144 Hz pOLED panel with 1,200 nits peak brightness, HDR10+ certification, FHD+ resolution, and a touch sampling rate of 360 Hz.
According to reports, the Motorola Edge 40 will feature an as-yet-unannounced Dimensity 8020 SoC under the hood. While it could refer to new MediaTek hardware, there is a good chance it is a typo and is meant to be the Dimensity 8200, as MediaTek has not yet launched a Dimensity xx20-branded SoC. The device will also include 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage, and a 4,400 mAh battery that supports 68 Watts fast charging.
The Motorola Edge 40 aims to simplify the camera experience by including only the essentials, a 50 MP wide-angle lens and a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle lens. For selfies, there’s a 32 MP sensor at the front. Other features include an under-display fingerprint sensor, an optional vegan leather body, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.2. Although there is no official word on the release date or price, the smartphone is expected to be unveiled soon.
