Moto Edge 40 Pro renders leaked ahead of purported global launch

The Moto Edge 40 Pro is expected to be a rebranded version of the Moto X40 smartphone launched in China earlier.

  • Moto Edge 40 Pro renders have been leaked before launch
  • The design appears very similar to the Moto X40 in China
  • Moto had previously launched the Moto X30 as Edge 30 Pro globally

Motorola may no longer be the market leader that it once was decades ago, but that has not stopped the brand from launching a range of interesting devices in the smartphone space. Case in point — at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress 2023, Moto showcased a rollable smartphone concept, resembling its Rizr range of sliding mobile phones from decades ago. Alongside such bold experiments, the brand also launches regular devices, and the latest of the bunch is expected to be Moto Edge 40 Pro.

Moto Edge 40 Pro: what we know so far

According to a report by Android Police, citing renders published online on Twitter by noted tipster Evan Blass, the Moto Edge 40 Pro is expected to launch in global markets soon. Ahead of this launch, Blass shared a host of renders of the smartphone on Twitter, showcasing its full design including the rear camera module.

As per the design shared, the Moto Edge 40 Pro appears to look exactly like the already launched Moto X40 smartphone in China. This would not come as a surprise — Motorola had launched the China-only X30 as Edge 30 Pro in India and other global markets. As a result, a similar practice for the new generation of the smartphone would hardly be a shocker.

The design showcased a display that is curved inward on both the edges, and with super slim bezels all around. The rear features a triple rear camera to the top-left, with the ‘50MP’ moniker printed on it. Like the rear, the edges of the rear are also curved inward, giving the appearance of a premium Android smartphone.

While Blass or Android Police did not tip any specifications, if the X40 and Edge 40 Pro turn out to be the same, then we have a host of specifications at hand. These include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, up to 12GB RAM and 512GB storage, a 6.7-inch 165Hz full HD+ display, a 50MP + 50MP + 12MP triple rear camera setup with 2x optical zoom, Wi-Fi 6E and 5G connectivity, and a 4,600mAh battery with 125W fast charging.
