Motorola unveiled the Moto X40 in China last December. The Motorola smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s currently fastest processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. According to a tip from China, the premiere on the world market is imminent. As usual with Motorola, the marketing name changes – the Moto X40 becomes the Motorola Edge 40 Pro.
The Motorola Edge 40 Pro should have the same design as the Moto X40 5G and be launched in black and blue colors. The 6.67-inch OLED display offers FHD+ resolution and supports a very fast 165 Hz refresh rate. The panel is also protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset works under the hood, which Motorola couples with up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of internal storage.
In the camera department, a front camera with a whopping 60 megapixels is used for selfies. On the back there is a 50-megapixel main camera, a 50-megapixel ultra-wide and a 12-megapixel portrait lens. As usual, Motorola uses MyUX 13 based on Android 13 for the new phone. The starting price of the 12/256 GB version is 850 euros.
