Leaked Moto X40 renders highlight design changes for Motorola Edge 40 Pro too
@OnLeaks has shared renders of Motorola’s next flagship smartphone, which the company has already started teasing on Chinese social media. For reference, the smartphone will launch in China as the Moto X40, perhaps in two versions, but the Edge 40 Pro elsewhere. @OnLeaks’ renders are not the first sightings of the Moto X40 or Edge 40 Pro, either. Instead, TENAA released hands-on photos with a Moto X40 unit in October.
Supposedly, @OnLeaks has based his renders on leaked CADs, which contain a few more details than TENAA revealed. As the images below show, the Moto X40 has upward and downward-firing speakers, as well as a bottom-mounted card tray and a centred USB Type-C port. The new renders highlight how little metal separates the curved display from the back glass, too. In fact, Motorola has left enough space to include a power button and volume buttons.
Additionally, @OnLeaks claims that the Moto X40 measures 161.3 x 73.9 x 8.6 mm, or 10.8 mm, when including its camera housing. In other words, the Moto X40 is shorter and narrower than its predecessor, which comes in at 163.6 x 75.6 mm. However, the Moto X40 is a touch thicker at 8.6 mm. Motorola has not announced the device’s Chinese or global release dates yet, although the former is expected to occur before the end of the year. In comparison, the Edge 40 Pro is unlikely to land until early 2023.
