According to device leaks, they also apply to a high-end AMOLED display, not to mention more than one mysterious iPhone-esque camera hump.
Motorola now also confirms that the Moto X40 will offer “A comprehensive experienceas a flagship with its newly confirmed processor upgrade. And again, the company is yet to reveal whether or not it can once again beat potential competitors like Xiaomi 13 Pro or OnePlus 11 to launch.
