Motorola has recently rolled out a new smartphone named Moto X40 in the Chinese market. The smartphone is the successor of the Moto X30 that appeared in the market last year. Talking about the latest offering by Moto, it brings multiple upgrades to the table. A major highlight of the device is that it brings a whopping 165Hz refresh rate which makes it the first phone to carry the same.

This time, Moto has also made a few changes in the design as we can spot the square-shaped camera island, including three sensors and a circular flash situated at the top left corner of the device. The Motorola branding can be spotted on the center of the screen. The power button and volume rockers of the smartphone are located on the right spine.

As for the pricing, the Moto X40’s 8GB RAM variant with 256GB internal storage is available in the market at a price of CNY 3,399, which converts to Rs 40,300. On the other hand, the 12GB RAM variant of the device with 512GB internal storage is available in the market for CNY 4,299, which converts to 51,000. The device ships in two different colour variants: Blue and Black.

Until now, there is no information regarding the India launch of the Moto offering. However, whenever it makes an entry in India, Moto X40 will have a neck to neck battle against the upcoming iQOO 11 as both the devices run on the same processor. Talking about the iQOO 11 5G, it is going to launch in India on January 10.
