The series is complete: After the Edge 40 Pro, the Motorola Edge 40 with powerful hardware and a premium build is now also available. There are two versions – one in blue acrylic and one with vegan leather in black or green. The latter two weigh 171g, while the acrylic variant is marginally lighter at 167g. All three are IP68 rated for water and dust resistance.
The Motorola Edge 40 relies on the new MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chipset, which is manufactured using a 6nm process. We also get 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The 6.55-inch OLED display has a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels with a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz. In addition, the 8-bit panel offers a maximum brightness of 1,200 nits, 360 Hz touch sampling and HDR10+ support. There are two stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support.
The main camera of the Motorola Edge 40 is based on a 1/1.5 inch sensor with 50 megapixels and an optically stabilized lens with an aperture of f/1.4. The sensor combines four pixels for 2 µm large overall pixels. There is also a 13 megapixel ultra wide with an aperture of f/2.2 and “Macro Vision”. This means that this lens has autofocus and is therefore also suitable for close-up shots. The Edge 40 also has a 32-megapixel selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.4 and also autofocus.
The Motorola Edge 40 is powered by a 4,400 mAh battery with 68 watts of wired charging and 15 watts of wireless charging. The matching charger is part of the scope of delivery. The Motorola phone is available now in Nebula Green, Eclipse Black (both vegan leather) and Lunar Blue (acrylic) priced at €550 ($606) for the only 8/256GB version.
