Motorola announces December 15 launch event, Moto X40 expected- Motorola today revealed that it will launch a new device in China on December 15; the teaser image it posted on Weibo shows two cellphones, one of which has a centred punch hole in the display and the other does not. The latter might be a model with an in-display camera. Since the Edge X30 was revealed around the same time last year, the Lenovo-owned firm could introduce the Moto X40 next Wednesday, but Motorola didn’t specifically mention the name of the gadget.
- On December 15, Motorola has an event planned.
- On stage, the business might introduce the Moto X40 and Moto X40 Pro.
- The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 SoC and triple cameras on the back are expected to come standard with the phones.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to power the Motorola X40, which hasn’t been officially announced by the company but was seen on AnTuTu utilising Qualcomm’s most recent flagship chip.
A Motorola smartphone thought to be the X40 was listed on TENAA with the product code XT2301-5 with its photos and specifications, which included a 6.67″ FullHD+ curved screen, 8GB/12GB/18GB RAM, and 128G/256GB/512GB storage.
The XT2301-5 has a 4,950 mAh battery with a triple camera configuration on the back (50MP+50MP+12MP). It also has an in-display fingerprint scanner. However, there is a different model with a 4,450 mAh cell capacity.
The Moto X40 Pro has also come to our attention; last week, leaked renders showed it. On December 15, it’s not yet known if it will be made available together with the vanilla model.
Prior to the event on December 15, Motorola is likely to make some announcements regarding its next device.
Moto X40 design
Images of the Moto X40 from TENAA revealed that it would have curved edges and a punch-hole cutout in the middle. On the right edge are the power and volume rockers. The triple camera sensors and an LED flash are housed in a square module that can be seen on the back. In the centre is the recognisable Moto dimple.
Interestingly, the event invitation depicts one phone with a punch-hole cutout in the centre and the other without one, leading us to suspect the selfie camera may be positioned beneath the screen.
