The screen as the protagonist

As can be seen in the product images, the terminal is quite large in its official dimensions (158.43 x 71.99 x 7.49 mm) but It is thin and light enough (total weight of 167 grams) so that it feels good when you hold it in your hands. In front there are almost no bezels visible, with a hole above its screen to place its front camera and a screen that extends towards its sides thanks to its curved edges.

Motorola Edge 40 can be obtained in standard black color as well as in green or pink tones which makes it more striking. Its structure has a vegan leather finish as well as a fine, precision-cut shot-blasted aluminum frame. And when it comes to resistance, it is capable of withstanding exposure to dust, dirt and sand, as well as being submerged in fresh water at a depth of up to 1.5 meters for a maximum of 30 minutes.

Thus, we arrive at the most important part of its specifications, such as its 6.55-inch pOLED display in a native resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and a 20:9 aspect ratio. Its advanced details range from a 144Hz refresh rate, 360Hz touch sampling rate, 1200 nits maximum brightness levels, and support for the HDR10+ color standard.
