Going along with the renders that are leaked online, the Motorola P40 will be the first in series to get a display with a punch hole that houses a selfie camera. After the announcement of the Honor V20, this punch hole design is gaining huge traction in the smartphone industry. Even Motorola is likely to join the series after the Samsung Galaxy A8s, Huawei Nova 4. Talking about the display screen, it features 6.2-inches display without a notch, thin bezels, and Motorola branding. The left edge houses a SIM tray whereas the volume and power buttons are at the right end. On the bottom, you can find a USB Type-C port, speaker grille, and a hole. It still gets a 3.5mm headphone jack positioned at the top end. From the leaked images, we can find that the rear panel is highly reflective which suggest glass material. Another main highlight of the Motorola smartphone is the dual rear camera setup of the 48MP sensor. Currently, there is no exact information on the resolution of the secondary camera sensor. It further has two LED flashlights placed below the sensors. On the rear end, there is a Motorola logo along with the fingerprint sensor. Apart from the sensor, Motorola even brings up facial unlock as a part of the biometric security. Since the rear end also gets an Android One logo, we can be sure that the device will be an affordable option and will get regular security and software updates. Apart from the design, there is no information about the Motorola P40 specs. But, being the latest generation smartphone, Motorola P40 will definitely pack in powerful internals that makes the device best choice to prefer for 2019.
