Hi, what are you looking for?


With the Edge 40 Pro, Motorola is taking its product seriously.

Motorola hasn’t had much presence in the flagship phone market in the previous two years, but that may soon change. A worldwide version of the X40, which the firm debuted in China at the end of last year, is being unveiled by the company as the Edge 40 Pro. It has a 6.67-inch display with a refresh rate of up to 165 Hz, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU, and an IP68 designation for weather and dust protection.

In summary, it appears to be a strong competitor in Android flagship devices, at least on paper. At €899.99 (about $980), it will be available in European countries “in the next days,” and Latin American markets will follow soon after.

So what about the US? With a remark in today’s press release that it’s “happy to reveal its commitment to extend the Edge family in North America this year,” Motorola is a touch sneaky about that. Then again, maybe it’s not bringing that phone to the US. Motorola has committed to it, whatever it entails.

I want the Edge 40 Pro to be available in the US. It also comes with 12GB of RAM, a 50-megapixel primary camera with optical stabilization, very quick 125W cable charging, and 15W wireless charging in addition to a true IP68 classification, which the Edge Plus from last year lacked. Another enhancement over the Edge Plus is the 12-megapixel, 2-x “portrait” telephoto camera. The Edge Plus lacked a telephoto camera.

All of that sounds wonderful to me, but there is one crucial aspect that I hope Motorola has also improved: its software support policy. Only two OS upgrades and three years of security patches were guaranteed for the Edge Plus. It must perform far better to match Samsung’s regular four OS upgrades and five years of security support.
