Motorola P40 Specifications Surface Online, Tipped to Feature Snapdragon 675 SoC, 48MP Camera


The Moto P30 and the Moto P30 Note were launched in China last year and they turned out to be pretty successful, all thanks to good specifications and their value-for-money factor. The Moto P30 Note was then launched in India in the second half of 2018 as the Motorola One Power (Review). It had stock Android UI instead of ZUI and turned out to be a great device in its price segment (sub-INR 15,000). Now, it looks like the successor to the Moto P30 has been leaked, complete with its design and specifications.

The Moto P40 appears to be featuring a shinier design, a punch-hole-style front-facing camera, a dual-camera setup at the rear, a much faster processor, and a high-capacity battery. Let’s have a look at its details specifications as well as the design of the upcoming smartphone.

Moto P40 Features, Specifications

Twitter user and Motorola enthusiast Andri Yatim (who goes by the Twitter handle @HeyAndri) has revealed the image and specifications of the Moto P40 in a new tweet. Going by his information, the Moto P40 will feature a 6.2-inch HD+ IPS LCD screen. However, it would be almost suicidal to use a lower resolution screen compared to the Full HD+ screen used in the Moto P30, so it could be a mistake on his part. Looks like the phone will have a fingerprint reader at the rear, under the Motorola Logo.

He has also revealed that the Moto P40 will run Android 9 Pie-based ZUI software and use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor. The phone could be launched in two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB. Both the storage variants will reportedly come with 6GB of RAM. Whether or not it will come with a microSD card slot remains to be seen. The Moto P40 will also come with a 12MP selfie camera with f/1.8 aperture and AI enhancements. The phone will have a 48MP+5MP dual-camera setup at the rear. The Moto P40 will also feature NFC and a 4132mAh battery.

What Could We Expect From Moto P40 Note?

Last year, the only difference between the Moto P30 and the Moto P30 Note was the battery capacity. The Moto P30 was launched with a 3000mAh battery, while the Moto P30 Note had a 5000mAh battery. Both featured 10W fast charging, though. This year, we expect a similar difference between the Moto P40 and the Moto P40 Note. The Moto P40 Note could come with a 5000mAh or even higher capacity battery. There’s a good chance that the Moto P40 Note could be launched in India as well and with Android One certified stock Android UI instead of ZUI.

Since there’s a huge upgrade in terms of processing power, design, and the camera, we expect the Moto P40 and the Moto P40 Note to be pricier versions of the Moto P30 and the Moto P30 Note rather than being their direct successors. Hence, if the Moto P40 Note launches in India, it will be priced higher than the Moto One Power and both could co-exist, catering to different price segments.
