Motorola has launched multiple smartphones in the Edge 30 series in India and other markets. The Edge 30 series debuted in China as the X30-series. It has been almost a year since the first X30-series phone, the Moto X30, was launched in China. Motorola is now expected to launch the next generation of flagship phones to refresh the premium lineup. One of the devices expected to launch later this year is the Motorola Moto X40.

The Moto X40 could debut in global markets as the Moto Edge 40 Pro. The company has not confirmed any details about the launch of the upcoming Motorola phone. Meanwhile, a new leak has revealed the specifications and features of the Moto X40. The leak comes from tipster Digital Chat Station (DCS), who has maintained a fairly accurate record when it comes to smartphone leaks.

Motorola Moto X40 Specifications

Motorola could launch the Moto X40 in China in November or December. The device is likely the first X40-series phone launching in China. There is no official word on the launch date. Meanwhile, DCS (via) revealed that the X40 could feature the unannounced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC is expected to be announced at the Snapdragon Summit on November 15. Following the Snapdragon event, Motorola is expected to announce the X40-series launch date.

The X40 is also rumoured to feature a 50MP main camera sensor. It is likely to sport a triple-camera setup on the back. Considering the X30 came with a 50MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP depth sensor, the same specs could be passed on to the X40.

DCS further claimed that the X40 will be priced competitively and could well be one of the most affordable phones to feature a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The device was spotted on the 3C website with the model number XT2301-5. It revealed that the X40 will support 68W fast charging out of the box. Motorola is likely to keep its 125W fast charging tech exclusive to the Ultra models like the Edge 30 Ultra.

Moto Edge Series Background in India

Motorola has had a China first policy with its flagship series of smartphones and that includes the Edge X30 series which launched in India as the Edge 30 series of smartphones. The first in this series to launch in India is the Edge 30 Pro which featured the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. It was priced at Rs 49,999 to start with which means that we can keep this as a baseline for when the Edge X40 series launches in India. And like the previous versions it could launch as the Edge 40 series.

More details about the X40 series will be shared as and when available. Meanwhile, let us know your thoughts about the Moto X40 in the comments below.
