Introducing Edge 40 Pro - Motorola flagship with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and 165 Hz screen!

Introducing Edge 40 Pro – Motorola flagship with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and 165 Hz screen! news unit: On Tuesday, April 4, 2023 (April 15, 1402), Motorola company unveiled a new phone for the global market called Edge 40 Pro, which is in the flagship category. Of course, Edge 40 Pro is not a new phone and it should be considered the same Moto X40 that was introduced for the Chinese market a while ago. This procedure can also be seen in last year’s Motorola products; Where the Edge 30 Pro was actually the global market version of the Edge X30, which was unveiled in December 2021 for the Chinese market. Edge 40 Pro has advanced features in the flagship category, including IP68 body, 165 Hz old screen, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, main camera equipped with OIS and 125 W wired charger.

Edge 40 Pro has the same design difference as before and by placing it next to Moto X40, we do not face any difference; The edges of the screen and the back cover of the phone are designed to be completely curved, and thus, with the apparent reduction of the device’s peripheral band on the left and right, the thickness of the phone appears to be less than it is. Thanks to the device, but the square design of the camera lenses on the back looks a bit old.

The back and top of the phone, as expected from a flagship, is covered with Gorilla Glass Victus, and the matte glass on the back does not absorb fingerprints. Edge 40 Pro with IP68 standard is resistant to water and dust penetration, which, despite the fact that on paper it means the possibility of operating the phone under clear water with a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes, but the manufacturer does not need to use it in He spoke underwater!

Edge 40 Pro, which is available in two colors, blue and black, has approximate dimensions of 8.6 x 74 x 161.1 mm and weighs 199 grams.

The 6.67-inch screen of the device, despite the fact that it does not have LTPO technology (to change the refresh rate and automatically reduce it to very small values), unlike most other flagships of its class, but instead, it challenges almost all of its competitors by supporting a refresh rate of 165 Hz. . This pOLED panel has full HD+ resolution in the ratio of 20:9 or 1080 x 2400 pixels, and its touch speed is up to 360 times per second. Support for displaying HDR10+ content and Dolby Vision along with displaying the DCI-P3 color range are other features of this 10-bit panel. The fingerprint sensor is located in this panel.

The camera above the screen exceeds the usual expectations for a selfie camera and has a resolution of 60 megapixels. The sensor pixels of this camera are, of course, very small and 0.61 microns, which after a quadruple combination achieve 1.22 microns in one-quarter resolution. This camera lacks autofocus, but it surpasses most of its competitors by supporting 4K/60fps video recording.

On the back of the phone, we find three main cameras, ultrawide and telephoto/portrait, which were also present in the X40; The main 50-megapixel camera has a 1.5-inch sensor with 1-micron pixels that shoots at 12-megapixel resolution by default after quadruple pixel combining. This camera is equipped with a lens with an aperture of 1.8, which also has OIS. The maximum recording resolution of this camera is like a real flagship 8K/30fps, and by reducing the resolution to a fork, you can also record at 30 or 60 frames per second. The second camera is another 50 megapixel with an ultra-wide lens that captures a field of view equal to 114 degrees and supports photography from a very close distance (macro). The maximum resolution of this camera is 4K/60fps. The third and last camera in this collection is a 12-megapixel model that produces an image equivalent to 2x optical zoom, but with an aperture of 1.6, it also seems ideal for taking portraits. This camera is also capable of recording 4K videos, but the recording speed in this resolution is 30fps.

The Edge 40 Pro processor, as mentioned, is a 4 nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with a single Cortex-X3 core, dual Cortex-A715 and Cortex-A710 cores and three Cortex-A510 cores, and Adreno 740 is responsible for graphics processing. has it. While 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128, 256 or 512 GB of internal memory were used in Moto X40, the Chinese equivalent of this phone, Edge 40 Pro comes in only one version with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory. Of course, the type of these memories has not changed and is LPDDR5X for RAM and UFS 4.0 for internal memory.

The phone’s rather bulky battery has a capacity of 4,600 mAh, which seems a little weak for this detailed set; Instead, Motorola has considered a powerful charger for this battery, which will not make you wait much with the power of 125 watts. Motorola previously mentioned that the X40 only takes 7 minutes to reach 50% of battery capacity, which is apparently the case for the Edge 40 Pro as well. To complete the Edge 40 Pro flagship collection, it should be noted that it supports 15W wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging.

Operation in different frequency bands of 4G and 5G networks, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, satellite routers and NFC are part of the connection options of this phone, and dual Dolby Atmos speakers, four microphones and USB-C port (with USB 3.2 speed standard and support for DisplayPort 1.4 interface) are also present in it. There is no headphone jack and microSD memory slot in this phone.

Motorola Edge 40 Pro with Android 13 operating system and a user interface close to raw Android will be released to the European market in the “coming days” at a price of 899.99 euros, and there is still no news about the possibility of its presence in other markets, especially the US market.
