Moto Edge 40 Pro FCC certification with 125W fast charging hints at imminent launch

Previously, we have seen the Motorola XT2301-5 appear on China’s 3C listing. With the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor officially available, it is no secret that Motorola is working on a new flagship that will house the cutting-edge Qualcomm SoC. This is thought to be the new Moto X40.

The Moto Edge 40 Pro was recently discovered on the TRDA listing as a version of the same handset with model number XT2301-4. According to the brand’s name history, the likelihood that this is a Moto X40 rebrand is strong. The identical gadget, bearing the model number XT2301-4, has since turned up in the FCC certification database, exposing some information along the way.

In addition to supporting 125W wired charging, the gadget is shown to be compatible with both wireless and reverse wireless charging. NFC, Bluetooth, and 5G are supported. One oddity with the description is that it lists the device’s Wi-Fi capabilities as being only Wi-Fi 6E, despite the fact that the most recent Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor supports Wi-Fi 7. This raises the issue of whether Motorola intends to save the new SoC for a “Ultra” version or whether it will actually be included in the Edge 40 Pro.

According to current reports surrounding the gadget, it will have a triple camera configuration on the back, consisting of a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 50-megapixel ultra-wide unit, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens. It will also have LPDDR5X RAM. Finally, it is anticipated that the device’s display would support a refresh rate of up to 165Hz.
