The Motorola Edge 40 Pro could kill the Galaxy S23 Ultra | Digital Trends Spanish

It looks like an official announcement for the Motorola Edge 40 and Edge 40 Pro is right around the corner, but the new leaks have already painted a clear (and flattering) picture of what fans should expect from smartphones.

The Motorola Edge 40 Pro, specifically, is shaping up to be an excellent device if the leaks are accurate, and it could be a surprising competitor to the excellent Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.


According to avid Twitter leaker SnoopyTech, the specifications for the Edge 40 Pro have been laid out in full. The flagship will feature a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and offer 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It will feature a 6.67-inch Full HD+ display that supports a 165Hz refresh rate, along with a 4,600mAh battery that supports 125W super-fast charging via a USB-C port. In terms of cameras, the Motorola Edge 40 Pro is rumored to support three rear shooters: two 50-megapixel lenses (one wide and one ultra-wide) and a 12MP telephoto lens. On the front of the phone, the Edge 40 Pro is said to have a massive 60MP selfie camera.

Those specs, coupled with the fact that it will likely run Android 13 out of the box, indicate that the Edge 40 Pro is essentially a Galaxy S23 Ultra with a few different cameras. The only important thing that sets it apart is its supposed price.

The 256GB storage version of the S23 Ultra retails for $1,199, while the Edge 40 Pro will retail for just 899 Euros (roughly $975). That price difference is pretty substantial considering how expensive new flagship smartphones have become of late, so the Edge 40 Pro boasts some pretty impressive specs for a device that seems likely to sell for under $1,000. .

While none of this is officially confirmed yet, there’s been a steady trickle of leaks regarding the Motorola Edge 40 Pro’s specs that seem to corroborate each other’s information, so it sounds like Motorola could be sitting on a major flagship competitor.

The Edge 40 Pro renders also paint it as a sleek-looking smartphone that sports a rounded, almost bezel-less display. In China, the Edge 40 Pro (called the Moto X40) did well, so given its impressive specs, it’ll be exciting to see how it fares in the global market once it finally makes its official debut.
