Moto X40 Pro renders surface online, design revealed

This is Motorola's upcoming premium flagship

Do you know which brand was the first to launch a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered phone? It was Motorola. The phone was Moto Edge X30 which launched globally as the Moto Edge 30 Pro. While Motorola is not the first brand to launch a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered phone, the company has already announced that it is launching a phone with this SOC soon. The company has revealed that the Moto X40 series will feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

Now, OnLeaks has shared the renders of the Moto X40 Pro, which give us our first look at the design. As the name suggests, this is the successor to Moto X30 Pro, which launched in August as the first phone with a 200MP camera sensor.

Design-wise, the Moto X40 Pro is almost the same phone as Moto X30 Pro, except for the camera module. There is still a triple camera setup and a square-shaped camera module, but the arrangement of lenses is different. Apart from this, the phone looks the same as X30 Pro. There is a curved display with a hole punch cutout in the middle, a USB Type-C port on the bottom, no 3.5mm headphone jack, and a second speaker on top.

The display is roughly 6.67 inches, and the phone’s dimensions are 161.3 x 73.9 x 8.6mm (10.8mm with the camera module).

The spec sheet is not yet confirmed, but we know the SOC is Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Motorola has also revealed that the phone has IP68 certification. There is no information on the launch date yet.
