Motorola continues designing and launching new smartphones. But it is still out of competition. We mean though it has a number of very interesting models, this brand still can’t capture a large market share. The best proof of these words is the Motorola X40, which was launched in the Chinese market at the end of last year and is a high-end flagship product. We also know that the global variant of the phone will be called Motorola Edge 40 Pro. But there are not many leaks and rumors concerning this handset.
The Motorola Edge 40 Pro was spotted on the GeekBench database last week. Today, we learned that this handset had appeared on the Google Play Console. From the leaked information, we can assume that this is a flagship smartphone with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, 12GB of RAM, and a 1080p screen.
The built-in wallpaper on the device looks identical to the official image from Motorola’s website, showing 2.5D curved sides and a centered punch hole. Thus, everything remains unchanged in comparison to the X40.
Passing the Google Play Management Center certification indicates that the Motorola Edge 40 Pro will support Google services and will be pre-installed to run the Android 13 system.
As there wouldn’t be any major change with compared with the X40, we can assume that the specs list of the Motorola Edge 40 Pro. It should sport a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, a 6.67-inch OLED display with a support for FHD+ resolution and 165Hz refresh rate, and has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus coverage. The front facing camera will have a 60MP resolution, while the rear camera module will include a 50MP main lens, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and 12MP portrait lens. The 4600mAh battery will support 125W fast wired and 15W wireless charging. However, there should be another model with a 5000mAh battery and 68W charging.
The phone measures 161.3 x 73.9 x 8.5 mm and weighs 196 grams. Connectivity options include 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, GPS, and a USB Type-C port for charging.
