The Motorola Edge 40 Pro already appeared in a leak last month. It visited Geekbench with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and checked out the Google Play Console shortly after. All leaks have one thing in common: they indicate that the Edge 40 Pro will soon be launched as a global version of the Moto X40.
That suspicion was further substantiated today with new renders by tipster Evan Blass. It looks like the Edge 40 Pro images are straight from Motorola.com. In the US, the naming scheme is slightly different. So the Motorola smartphone should launch as the Moto Edge+ (2023) in America. Blass also posted a short video mentioning a refresh rate of 165 Hz. The high refresh rate was already one of the highlights of the X40. The OLED display is 6.7 inches, offers 10-bit colors, a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels (20:9) and has curved sides.
Motorola Edge 40 Pro with 125 watt fast charging
According to the Google Play Console, it is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in combination with up to 12 GB of RAM. The battery should only have a capacity of 4,600 mAh, but charge with an extremely fast 125 watts. At least 15 watts arrive wirelessly in the Motorola Edge 40 Pro. However, there were some differences between the chinese X30 and the international Edge 30 Pro last year.
The Moto X40, and thus probably also the Edge 40 Pro, is equipped with a 50 megapixel main camera with a 1/1.55 inch sensor and OIS. There is also a 50 megapixel ultra wide with 117 degrees and a 12 megapixel 2x zoom camera. On the front is a 60-megapixel selfie camera in a punchhole in the center.
According to the images, the phone has stereo speakers with Dolby Audio. And it should be waterproof, which would match the IP68-rated X40. There is no official word yet on when Motorola will launch the Edge 40 Pro globally. Also, a regular Edge 40 should show up sooner or later as well. An Edge 40 Ultra, on the other hand, is not in sight as long as there is no suitable base X40 Pro.
