The ‘teaser’ images of the next Motorola flagship tell us about the “SUV of mobile phones”, although we are not very clear what that means yet.
For a few weeks Lenovo has been leaking details of your next flagship phone under the banner of Motorolawhich according to previous leaks will be known as Motorbike X40 in some markets while in others, surely in Europe too, it will arrive renamed as Motorola Edge 40 Pro although keeping design and hardware intact.
We already know, in fact, that in all the countries where it is sold it will finally boast a chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 to crown quite an outstanding hardware platformand that always counting on a more affordable concept in costs that will allow him to fight as one of the top of the range with the best rate between price and benefits.
Be that as it may, there were things that Lenovo and Motorola had not told us, but again on the popular social network Weibohabitual nest of the Chinese filterers, surprise functionalities are detailed that will turn this Moto X40 (or Edge 40 Pro) into what for Motorola is “the SUV of smartphones”.
And it is that indeed no one expected additional protection for a flagship that already last year it ran out of resistance certifications, but that finally and with a view to the next course 2023 yes, it will have an IP68 certification seal that ensures its durability against liquids and dust like the rest of the cut more premium.
That is why Motorola talks about the “SUV from your smartphone catalogue”since versatility, autonomy and durability have prevailed above any other aspect or design parameter.
The idea of the North American brand, now in Chinese hands, is precisely that this Motorola Edge 40 Pro is one of the most capable high-performance smartphones in any environmentallowing its users to enjoy them to the fullest just like an SUV allows you to face more demanding challenges than any conventional tourism.
Of course, and although the IP68 certification theoretically promises resistance to complete immersion in water at depths up to one meter, then in the real world you have to be a little more carefulbecause, for example, it is not recommended to wet a device with salt water or expose it to pressurized water jets.
Maybe that’s why East teaser from Motorola is not too lucky or should be pointed outas many users could make a mistake with the resistance capabilities of their new phone and end up damaging it completely unconsciously.
The future Moto Edge 40 Pro promises, according to leaks, a Snapdragon 8 Gen2 SoC, an OLED screen with 165 hertz refresh rate and fast charging of up to 68 watts, as well as a triple camera with a 50-megapixel main sensor that will seek to further raise Motorola’s photographic bar .
And as for what we know about the hardware from previous leaks, we have already indicated that the chipset will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2accompanied for the occasion of 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5x RAM last generation.
will have a OLED type panel that can be refreshed at a rate of 165 hertz and you will enjoy LTPO technology, as well as a generous battery of as yet unknown capacity, but compatible with the ultra-fast charging up to 68 watts.
Regarding the multimedia section, there will be a 60 megapixel front camerathe data is impressive, although the greatest evolution will be behind with a triple 50-megapixel module the main sensor50 MP the ultra wide angle and 12 megapixels a telephoto lens to offer optical zoom.
Seen what has been seen and with the experience we have it will surely appear very soonbecause the leaks grow in quantity and quality, so we will have to keep track of Motorola very closely… We’ll be alert!
