Motorola Edge 40: Certifications confirm various specifications and confirm global launch
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has confirmed that Motorola has taken another step towards releasing the Edge 40, its next mid-range smartphone. For reference, Motorola has already brought the Moto X40 to global audiences by way of the Edge 40 Pro. As the images below show, the FCC has certified a smartphone with the model number 'XT2303-2' and does not refer to the Edge 40 by its marketing name.
However, other leaks have tied the XT2303 model number to the Edge 40, namely the Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) in the UAE. Additionally, certain FCC documentation confirms that the Edge 40 will carry a CE mark, underlining that it will be available in Europe. In other words, Motorola plans to offer the Edge 40 globally.
Moreover, the FCC has confirmed that the Edge 40 supports 5G and Bluetooth LE connectivity, as well as Wi-Fi 6. For some reason, Wi-Fi 6E is missing, meaning that the Edge 40 will be unable to connect to faster 6 GHz connections. Separately, the TRDA has revealed that the Edge 40 also has a 4,400 mAh battery and 68 W fast charging, which matches earlier leaks. A release date still remains unknown for now, but retail units may have already reached some people, based on recent Geekbench listings.
