The Motorola E40 is equipped with a 6.5-inch LCD display with an HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. Thanks to the high refresh rate of the screen, moving images look much smoother.

Motorola Moto E40 with triple camera
A triple camera is placed on the back. It consists of a 48 megapixel main camera, a 2 megapixel macro camera and a 2 megapixel depth sensor. The latter makes it possible to take photos with a bokeh effect – blurring the background, making the subject stand out more beautifully. The fingerprint sensor can also be found on the back of the device.
The Motorola E40 is powered by a Unisoc T700 SoC with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage memory. A microSD memory card slot is also available to expand the memory. The phone runs on the Android 11 operating system. There is also a button on the side of the device to activate the Google Assistant.
Furthermore, this new Motorola phone has a single speaker, Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi support. The Moto E40 will be equipped with a 5,000 mAh battery. Because it is a relatively large battery, the phone will last about 2 days with average use, before it needs to be placed on the charger.
Charging is done via the USB-C connection on the bottom. The speed at which you can charge the phone is limited, the E40 supports a maximum charging power of 10 Watts. By placing the device on the charger at night, you will not be bothered much by the low charging speed. A 10W charger is included as standard.
