Motorola introduced the Edge 40 Pro with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in early April. Actually, you would also expect the base model Motorola Edge 40 on stage, instead there have only been leaks and rumors so far. Now the upcoming Edge has at least appeared on Geekbench, which indicates an imminent launch.
The Motorola Edge 40 achieved 1,105 single-core points and a multi-core score of 3,542 points in the benchmark test. The device ran Android 13, had 8GB of RAM onboard, and was powered by a chipset called MediaTek’s MT6891Z_Z/CZA SoC. The chip had four performance cores with 2.6 GHz and four efficiency cores with 2.0 GHz. Geekbench doesn’t mention the processor’s name. Rumor has it that it’s MediaTek’s new Dimensity 8020 chip.
However, the designation MT6891Z_Z/CZA is more similar to the Dimensity 1100 model code, which is MT6891Z/CZA. In addition, the Dimensity 1100 has an eight-core CPU whose frequencies correspond exactly to the clock speeds listed above. As a result, benchmark results are sometimes to be taken with a pinch of salt, so we’ll have to wait for more sources to confirm the Motorola Edge 40 chipset specs.
The rest of the Motorola Edge 40 leaked specs include a 6.55-inch 144Hz pOLED display with a FullHD+ resolution. Up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage is under the hood, as is a 4,400 mAh battery that charges with 68 watts via cable and 15 watts wirelessly. In addition to a 50 megapixel main camera with OIS, Motorola also installs a 13 megapixel ultra wide and a 32 megapixel selfie camera. The Motorola smartphone also has a built-in fingerprint sensor and stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos tuning. Protection against water and dust guarantees an IP68 rating.
