Motorola will also have another variant with PMMA acrylic glass on the back. That will be for select colors. The entire framing of the phone will be of metal.

It is said to be the first phone in the segment with a 144Hz 3D Curved display. The panel is expected to have a resolution of Full-HD+. It will be a punch-hole P-OLED screen that will double up as an in-display fingerprint scanner for security.

Furthermore, the 6.55-inch screen will have a 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut, 1200 nits of brightness, and HDR10 certification.

Since the display on the phone will be curved from the sides, Motorola is bringing another feature that makes use of the curves. Whenever a phone call or SMS comes, the edge of the phone will light up to notify you.

As for cameras, the device may feature a dual-rear camera system with a 50MP main lens having 2-micron ultra-pixel technology. The main lens will support optical image stabilization and have f/1.4 aperture.

Upfront, there will be a 32MP camera for clicking selfies. The device will pack a 4,400mAh battery with support for 68W TurboPower. It will also support 15W wireless charging.

Motorola has confirmed that the Edge 40 will be the world’s first phone with MediaTek Dimensity 8020 processor. The device will come with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage.

Other than this, the device will have a stereo speaker setup backed by Dolby Atmos. It will come with features like Moto Spaces, Moto Secure, ThinkShield, and e-SIM support.
