The confusingly branded Motorola P30 made quite a few (negative) headlines a few months back with its striking iPhone X resemblance, but fret not, as it seems the P40 will not mimic the design of Apple's latest flagships in such an obvious way.
It's possible that Motorola will also come out with an global version of the P40.More news: Samsung C-Lab to unveil 8 AI projects at CES 2019
The renders indicate a new direction in Motorola's design aesthetic, as the company adopts the display hole front camera feature.
The firm is widely expected to launch the Moto G7 family later in February, but that may not be the only device it is working on presently, as a freshly leaked render of a likely successor to the Moto P30 has just surfaced.More news: New e-commerce policy: Who likes it, who hates it
This past August, Motorola released a phone in China known as the P30. The renders show that the P40 will be an nearly bezel-less phone, and will include pretty thin bezels on the sides. For one thing, there is no notch on board here but rather a punch hole in the display to house the selfie camera. There are slim bezels around the screen, save for the chin that's large enough to fit Motorola's branding.
The renders show the SIM tray to be on the left, the power and volume buttons on the right, and a USB Type-C port at the bottom on the phone, along with a microphone hole and a speaker grille. The smartphone is expected to measure 160.1 x 71.2. x 8.7 mm in dimensions and 10mm in thickness including the bump at the rear. The P40 will sport dual camera setup on the back panel which will be aligned in a vertical fashion. The megapixel of the secondary camera of the P40 is yet to be revealed. Aside from that, no other details are mentioned, except the fingerprint scanner embedded in the logo on the back, and the existence of a 3.5mm headphone jack.More news: 'The Accidental Prime Minister': Congress demands special screening prior to release
