The budget Moto E40 has a 90 Hz display, a 48 megapixel camera and a 5000 mAh battery

Motorola quietly announced the release of a new member of the Moto E family. This is the Moto E40, a budget smartphone that replaces the previously released Moto E20. The novelty sports a large display with a high refresh rate, a powerful enough processor and a large battery. But first things first.

At the front, the new Moto E40 has a 6.5-inch HD + LCD panel with a 90 refresh rate and a small O-hole at the top for an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling. The manufacturer installed three more cameras on the back cover. It’s a 48MP main camera paired with a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. There, on the back panel, you can see the branded Moto logo in a round shape with a built-in fingerprint scanner.

The new Motorola smartphone is based on the Unisoc T700 chipset in combination with 4 GB of RAM. For data storage, there is a built-in 64 GB drive, which can be expanded using a microSD memory card. The Moto E40 is powered by a 5,000mAh rechargeable battery charged via the USB Type-C port. On a single charge, according to the manufacturer, the smartphone can last up to two days. And it works under the control of the Android 11 mobile operating system, on top of which the manufacturer installed its proprietary MyUX user interface.

The Moto E40 is housed in a plastic case with a grooved back cover, which prevents fingerprints from appearing on the surface like on a glossy case. The smartphone is offered in two colors: pink and gray.

The cost and timing of the start of sales of Moto E40 are still unknown. The manufacturer should disclose this information as soon as possible.
