Motorola announced today that a new product will be launched in China on December 15th. The Weibo teaser features two smartphones: one with a centered punchhole in the display and another without. The latter could be an under-display camera version. Motorola did not explicitly mention the product name. But since the Edge X30 was launched around the same time last year, the Lenovo-owned brand could unveil the Moto X40 next Wednesday. The international version will be called the Motorola Edge 40 Pro.
Motorola hasn’t revealed anything about the X40/Edge 40 Pro yet. At least the chipset is already known thanks to an AnTuTu benchmark – Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU takes over the drive. A Motorola smartphone with the model code XT2301-5, which is said to be the X40, also appeared at TENAA with pictures and some technical data. Including a curved 6.67 inch FullHD+ display, 8/12/18 GB of RAM and 128/256/512 GB of storage.

The XT2301-5 features a triple camera setup on the rear, with a 50-megapixel main camera, a 50-megapixel ultrawide, and a 12-megapixel telephoto. There’s an under-display fingerprint sensor and a battery rated at 4,950mAh. However, another variant with a nominal capacity of 4,450 mAh has already appeared.
A Moto X40 Pro / Edge 40 Ultra appeared last week in the renders above. However, it is unclear whether it will also be on stage on December 15th. More teasers should shed some light on the matter before the official event.
