Leak show non-modular Motorola P40 is the best looking Moto device in years


Ever since Motorola introduced the world to Moto Mods, the aesthetic appeal of its devices has gone down the drain. Most of its phones have roughly been the same size and shape so that they would all use the same Moto Mods which snap into the back of the phones.

The design of the first devices to use Moto Mods wasn’t too bad, but the market has shifted significantly since then and manufacturers have been delivering metal and glass smartphones which are absolutely stunning. Feeling a bit left out, it looks like the upcoming Motorola P40 will put Moto Mods to the side and give us a phone that looks far more attractive than anything the company has put our in years.

A new Motorola P40 leak has surfaced, shedding light on the phone’s specs while also producing renders which show what the device could look like. The body of the Motorola P40 is said to feature a metal frame which is sandwiched between front and rear glass panels which curve towards the edges. The 6.2-inch display will not feature a flexible panel, but it will have a punch-hole cutout in the top left corner for its front-facing camera.

The back of the phone is dominated by the raised dual-camera module in the top left corner. The main sensor should be capable of capturing 48MP images, but not details have been shared regarding the secondary sensor. The phone will also be equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and stock Android in certain markets since it’ll likely fall under the company’s Motorola One brand outside of China.

Based on the Motorola P30, the new P40 should come with at least 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a fairly-capable mid-range Snapdragon processor. If Motorola plays its cards right, the P40 could a popular option in 2019 for anyone looking for a mid-range device.
