Motorola introduced the Edge 40 Pro in April and followed up a month later with the regular Edge 40. Today the company announced the third model – the Motorola Edge 40 Neo is here. The Neo is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 7030 chipset paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a maximum of 256GB of internal storage. Out of the box it runs Android 13 with support for Moto Connect and Moto’s Ready For system.
The Edge 40 Neo is based on a 6.55-inch curved 10-bit pOLED display with a FullHD+ resolution. The refresh rate is 144 Hz and the touch sampling rate is 360 Hz. It covers the DCI-P3 color space and creates a peak brightness of 1,300 nits. The panel also features HDR10+ certification, an integrated fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication and a central punchhole for the 32-megapixel selfie camera.
On the back is the camera module with a 50 megapixel main camera with OIS and a 13 megapixel ultra wide camera with a 120 degree field of view. The latter also has autofocus for macro shots. The Motorola Edge 40 Neo is available in three colors: PANTONE Black Beauty, PANTONE Soothing Sea and PANTONE Caneel Bay. The back of the black version is made of acrylic and is therefore the lightest. The other two models use slightly heavier vegan leather.

The Motorola smartphone also has stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos and a 5,000 mAh battery with 68 watt charging power an board.
