The Motorola Edge 40 Pro first appeared last month, showing up in Geekbench with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and then reappearing on the Google Play Console not long after. On both instances, it was stated that starting in December, this would be the Moto X40’s global version.
Now that Evan Blass has shared renders and brief videos of the phone, which appear to belong on the Edge 40 Pro’s page on Motorola.com, this link seems even more certain. Because of the slightly distinct naming convention in the US, this should be displayed as the Moto Edge+. (2023).
One video makes reference to the display’s 165Hz frame rate, which is one of the X40’s best features. The 6.7″-sized, 10-bit OLED panel monitor in question has a 20:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1,080 by 2,400 pixels.
The phone’s SD 8 Gen 2 processor can support up to 12GB of RAM. (based on data from the GPC). A 4,600mAh power cell battery with 125W rapid wired charging and 15W wireless charging should be used. (note that last year there were some difference between the X30 and Edge 30 Pro).
A 50MP main camera (1/1.55″ sensor, OIS) is featured on the X40 (and likely the Moto Edge 40 Pro), along with a 50MP ultra wide (117°) and a 12MP zoom camera. (2x). A 60MP selfie camera is housed inside a punch hole in the middle of the front.
The phone has stereo speakers (with Dolby Audio), as you can see in some of these pictures, and is water proof. (the X40 is rated IP68).
When Motorola will publicly introduce the Edge 40 Pro around the world is unknown. Other versions should follow (like a standard Edge 40), but without an X40 Pro, there won’t likely be an Edge 30 Ultra successor.
