The Moto X40’s TENAA listing (via. TechGoing) reveals that it has a 6.67-inch OLED display. The screen offers a Full HD+ resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels and 10-bit colors. It is integrated with an under-display fingerprint scanner. Reports have claimed that the device will carry support for a 165Hz refresh rate.
The TENAA listing reveals that the Moto X40 is powered by a 3.0GHz octa-core processor, which appears to be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform. The phone will arrive in China with 8 GB / 12 GB / 18 GB of LPDDR5x RAM and 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB of native storage.
The predecessor model, Moto Edge X30, featured a 5,000mAh battery and supported 68W fast charging. The 3C certification of the Moto X40 revealed that it will also support 68W rapid charging. As far as the battery size is concerned, the listing states that it packs a “4,950mAh / 4,450mAh” battery. It probably houses a 5,000mAh battery.
The listing has no information on the front camera of the Moto X40. However, it is speculated to sport a 60-megapixel selfie snapper like its previous generation model. The back panel of the device has a 50-megapixel + 50-megapixel + 12-megapixel triple camera unit.
The X40 measures 161.3 x 73.9 x 8.5mm and weighs around 196 grams. Now that it has received 3C and TENAA certifications, it appears that it could be one of the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phones to go official. The device is expected to release with the “Motorola Edge 40 Pro” moniker in the global market. It is likely to arrive in markets outside of China by Q1 2023.
