Introducing the motorola edge 40, a device submersed in style

Today, Motorola expands the edge family with the motorola edge 40, a device that boasts advanced features like a curved display, IP68 dust and water protection, a powerful 50MP camera and fast charging in a sleek, stylish design.

Mixing style and performance, the motorola edge 40 is one of the slimmest in its class (7.58mm), featuring a borderless curved glass display and curved rear inlay joined together by a precision-cut, sandblasted aluminium frame. Beautifully sleek and seamless to hold, this combination offers both exceptional design and comfort, fitting perfectly in the contours of users’ hands.

Plus the soft, vegan leather backing makes it easy to grip. Beyond its looks, the premium design includes IP68 protection1 to withstand dust, dirt, sand2 and protect against an accidental dunk under fresh water1, so it’s ready to accompany users on all of life’s adventures.

Fantastic photos with a cutting edge camera system

With a 50MP hi-res camera system that includes the widest aperture available in a smartphone (f/1.4), the motorola edge 40 captures beautiful, detailed photos.

The incredibly wide aperture means users can enjoy:

  • Better pictures in low-light environments, so time of day is not an issue
  • A naturally soft focus background behind the subject for a professional touch
  • Faster capture speeds effortlessly freeze the action, making candid photos as accurate as possible

Plus, the Ambient Light Sensor immediately sets exposure so photographers don’t have to worry about missing a moment when opening their camera. All-pixel focus provides more accurate performance in any light, and OIS for crystal-clear shots. A 13MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision completes the rear camera system, letting users fit more in the frame or get closer to their subject, and a 32MP hi-res selfie camera guarantees excellent group or solo shots in all lighting conditions. The motorola edge 40 also comes with an array of new video and camera enhancements like Horizon Lock Stabilisation, Video Portrait and Vlog Mode to keep photographers up-to-date and on-trend.

A cinematic experience for enhanced entertainment

When streaming content and playing games, a big, beautiful screen is paramount, and the motorola edge 40 delivers a 6.55” pOLED display that features borderless curved edges for an all-encompassing view. The immersive display is complete with Full HD+ resolution, which makes for a sharper picture with less pixelation. It also comes with HDR10+ certification and DCI-P3 colour range for a wider range of colours that appear more vivid and true to life. When gaming, scrolling or multitasking, consumers can also take advantage of a fast and fluid 144Hz refresh rate to smoothly navigate their device.

The cinematic viewing experience is accompanied by Dolby Atmos® sound on stereo speakers, which adds depth and details to consumers’ favourite entertainment with enhanced bass. Plus, Motorola Spatial Sound makes the sound coming from users’ headphones or speakers feel more immersive as it fills the space around them when they’re listening to music or playing games. The motorola edge 40 display and audio offerings deliver an entertainment experience that is captivating and true to life.

Blazing-fast charging and consistent performance offer reliability on the go

When it’s time to recharge, consumers can rely on 68W TurboPower™ charging to get power for the day in just 10 minutes2,3, and enjoy a long-lasting 4400mAh battery that can connect at 5G speeds4 and keep up with busy routines. For added convenience, they can free themselves from cords with 15W wireless charging4 .

The motorola edge 40 is also equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chipset, offering seamless connections to blazing-fast 5G and Wi-Fi networks and powering everything from high resolution videos to smoother gaming. All with faster CPU & GPU speeds and greater power efficiency compared to the previous generation. There’s also 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM for smooth performance and quick recall, and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage5 for ample room for photos, movies, songs, apps, and games. Consumers can also unleash the full power of their smartphone with Ready For wireless connection6 and PC compatibility7.

The motorola edge 40 runs on Android 13 and includes new security and software features for enhanced protection and safety, including the Moto Secure App. Powered by Thinkshield, the Moto Secure App is the go-to destination for all the vital device security and privacy features on the device.

Moto Secure App comes with a number of protections, including Secure Folder, to protect sensitive information and apps, Network Protection, to minimise risk when using public Wi-Fi, Lock Screen Security, allowing users to configure their lock screen options and PIN Pad Scramble, ensuring passwords are protected from other users looking at the device.
