The Moto Edge 40 will have a marginally smaller 6.55″ panel than the Pro (6.67″) with a curved AMOLED screen. It will be an 8-bit screen with a fast refresh rate of 144Hz. (vs. 165Hz, 10-bit on the Pro).
A 50MP primary module (with OIS) and a 13MP super wide camera are anticipated to be included in the camera configuration (as opposed to 50+50+12MP on the Pro, which also has a 2x zoom lens). A 32MP sensor with a lesser quality will be used for the front-facing camera.
