Announcement. Motorola Edge (2023) – a rounded middle class for the Far Abroad

American premiere, meet the new Motorola Edge (aka Motorola Edge (2023)).

Motorola Edge (2023)

Who it? A variation on the theme of the European smartphone Motorola Edge 40 Neo. Only the battery was reduced from 5000 to 4400 mAh. But they did push in wireless charging.

Motorola Edge 40 Neo

There are no differences from last year's Edge (2022) too much. There, like the European 40 Neo, a 5000 mAh battery was used, and there was an additional depth sensor. Charging was even slower. Well, that's not the point.

To the characteristics.

Edge (2023), like 40 Neo, has a freshMediaTek Dimensity 7030 chipset (~500K in AnTuTu10). By and large, the same thing, only under the name MediaTek Dimensity 1050, was also used in Edge (2022).

Memory. 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage. I suspect there is no support for memory cards.

POLED screen with ultra-high (144 Hz) refresh rate. Standard size, 6.6″ (105 cm²), decent resolution, 1080×2400 (399 ppi).

Battery... Well, I hope the smartphone is economical. Still, 4400 mAh is a little less than what you want to see. But charging is fast - 68 W. Wireless charging speed – 15 W.

Cameras.32 MP with autofocus at the front, 50+13 MP with optical stabilization at the back. Most likely, the sensor used in the main camera has not changed - OmniVision OV50A. But it is not exactly. But what has changed is the aperture. It was f/1.8, now (if this is not a typo) f/1.4.

It's not very clear what's going on with the protection.For the European Edge 40 Neo, complete waterproofness is declared - IP68. It is not indicated here in the official specification. But the page title contains the words “Water Resistant”. So, I think IP68 is still available here.

There is an NFC module, Wi-Fi 6E, support for 5G networks. The fingerprint scanner is hidden under the screen.

The Motorola Edge (2023) will cost $499.99 (₽50,700) at launch.
