It is almost certain that the soon-to-be-launched Motorola Edge 40 Pro will be an international copy of the Chinese Moto X40, so the specifications reviewed here can actually be considered official. The data of the plain Edge 40 has also been leaked, and this promises to be a completely new mobile without Asian ancestry, which does not mean that it will not be cool, it is true: two negative changes have also been discussed.

On the one hand, next to the 50 megapixel main camera this year, instead of a 50, but only a 13 megapixel ultra-wide camera, a telephoto lens is not offered again, on the other hand, the base price can jump from 450 to 600 euros, which is a considerable price increase. On the other hand, the failed phone with its eye-catching design can be strengthened in many respects: such is the Dimensity 8020 chip, which is waiting to be announced, which was probably not confused by the spy source with the 8200 chip.

The 144 Hz HDR10+ pOLED panel with a 6.55″ screen diagonal, 1200 nits luminance and FHD+ resolution sounds good. The basic model has a stereo speaker and IP68 protection, and the 4400 mAh battery, which seems a little tight at 4400 mAh, has 68-watt charging support and you can get a matching adapter as well as a 15-watt wireless option.

For the time being, Motorola is keeping a secret about the exact presentation date, but the arrival of the new Edge family is already being hinted at on social media. Obviously, the focus will be on the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 model, the price of which will increase to 900 euros according to the tips, but just like the Edge 30 Fusion last year, a cheaper model may win the home price/value battle this year as well.
