Cutting edge camera system
With a 50MP hi-res camera system that includes the widest aperture available in a smartphone (f/1.4), the motorola edge 40 captures beautiful, detailed photos.
The incredibly wide aperture means users can enjoy:
- Better pictures in low-light environments, so time of day is not an issue
- A naturally soft focus background behind the subject for a professional touch
- Faster capture speeds effortlessly freeze the action, making candid photos as accurate as possible
Plus, the Ambient Light Sensor immediately sets exposure so photographers don’t have to worry about missing a moment when opening their camera. All-pixel focus provides more accurate performance in any light, and OIS for crystal-clear shots.
A 13MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision completes the rear camera system, letting users fit more in the frame or get closer to their subject, and a 32MP hi-res selfie camera guarantees excellent group or solo shots in all lighting conditions. The motorola edge 40 also comes with an array of new video and camera enhancements like Horizon Lock Stabilisation, Video Portrait and Vlog Mode to keep photographers up-to-date and on-trend.
When streaming content and playing games, a big, beautiful screen is paramount, and the motorola edge 40 delivers a 6.55” pOLED display that features borderless curved edges for an all-encompassing view. The immersive display is complete with Full HD+ resolution, which makes for a sharper picture with less pixelation. It also comes with HDR10+ certification and DCI-P3 colour range for a wider range of colours that appear more vivid and true to life. When gaming, scrolling or multitasking, consumers can also take advantage of a fast and fluid 144Hz refresh rate to smoothly navigate their device.
The cinematic viewing experience is accompanied by Dolby Atmos sound on stereo speakers, which adds depth and details to consumers’ favourite entertainment with enhanced bass. Plus, Motorola Spatial Sound makes the sound coming from users’ headphones or speakers feel more immersive as it fills the space around them when they’re listening to music or playing games. The motorola edge 40 display and audio offerings deliver an entertainment experience that is captivating and true to life.
