Motorola is no stranger to launching amazing new smartphones. The key to this success is by focusing on offering top-notch user experiences by balancing its hardware and software offerings. This has been plain to see in the company’s E-series and G-series offerings, which are aimed at the budget and mid-range consumer. With the Edge series, the company aims to offer users a premium experience, without compromising on user experience. And the brand-new Motorola Edge 40 is a prime example of that. Powering the smartphone is the MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chipset and it is the key to the entire user experience.
Let’s take a closer look at what the smartphone has to offer.
As mentioned earlier, at the heart of the Motorola Edge 40 is the MediaTek Dimensity 8020 SoC. In fact, this new chipset is making its debut in the new smartphone. Looking at the specs, it seems like the Motorola Edge 40 is in fine hands. This octa-core chipset is based on the 6nm process and features four efficient Arm Cortex-A55 cores that are designed for everyday use. However, when the going gets tough, the phone can make use of the four Arm Cortex-A78 cores designed for resource-intensive tasks.
Gamers will also be pleased to hear that the Motorola Edge 40 is more than a match for their favourite titles. It packs a powerful Arm Mali-G77 GPU that can easily handle the latest games. Not only that, but the new HyperCrystal graphite cooling system can dissipate heat faster than standard cooling technology. This means longer gaming sessions without having to deal with heat.
Merges form with function
Of course, a premium smartphone must look the part and the Motorola Edge 40 does not disappoint. The sandblasted aluminium frame combine with the use of vegan leather on the rear makes makes the phone look classy and elegant. This is then combined with the 3D curved display that blends seamlessly with the frame. As if that wasn’t enough. The Motorola Edge 40 is IP68 rated for dust/water resistance and can be submerged 1.5m underwater for 30 minutes without any issues. In fact, the phone is touted as the slimmest 5G smartphone that is IP68 rated.
The MediaTek Dimensity 8020 supports high refresh rates on displays and the Motorola Edge 40 is a testament to that. The phone features a 6.55-inch pOLED display with a high refresh rate of 144Hz. This means smoother transition animations as well as scrolling. It is also very helpful for gamers as the high refresh rate reduces motion blur and provides an edge when playing competitively.
But it’s not just gamers that will love the display. The Motorola Edge 40 makes full use of the MediaTek MiraVision technology to offer support HDR10+ on the device. This means richer, and more natural-looking colours when viewing supported connect. This is then enhanced by the Moto Spatial Audio technology that is powered by Dolby Atmos.
At the back of the Motorola Edge 40 is a dual-camera setup with a 50MP primary camera and a 13MP ultra-wide camera. While this allows the phone to take great pictures, the device can also take great videos as well. This is made possible by tapping into the MediaTek APU 570 that is found in the Dimensity 8020 SoC. Not only does it allows the phone to capture night shots 20% faster than the previous Dimensity series, but it also allows for powerful AI-based features.
The Motorola Edge 40 comes with Horizon Lock, a feature that locks onto the horizon and keeps the video stable. There is also a Portrait Video mode that allows users to blur the background and highlight the subject. Vloggers and influencers would love the vlog mode that captures video from both cameras simultaneously.
The Motorola Edge 40 offers 5G connectivity thanks to the 5G modem in the MediaTek Dimensity 8020. In fact, the phone supports 14 5G bands. So you should stay connected regardless of your network provider. Further, the phone should also offer good battery life when connected to a 5G network thanks to the MediaTek 5G UltraSave technology in the chip.
Speaking of battery, the Motorola Edge 40 packs a large 4400mAh battery, which is pretty impressive considering the slimness of the phone. On top of this, the phone TurboPowerTM 68W fast charging allows a day’s worth of battery life with just 10 minutes of charging.
The Motorola Edge 40 sets a new standard for premium devices thanks to its groundbreaking MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chipset. This powerful octa-core SoC delivers exceptional performance, ensuring smooth gaming experiences and effortless multitasking. With advanced cooling technology and a 144Hz pOLED display, the phone takes entertainment to the next level. The chipset’s AI capabilities enhance photography and video recording, while 5G connectivity and a long-lasting battery complete the package. Experience the future of mobile technology with the Motorola Edge 40 and its cutting-edge chipset.
