Smartphone releases usually come fast with manufacturers diversifying their lineups by launching budget, mid-range, and premium smartphones. Lenovo-owned Motorola is no exception to this, with the company rumoured to be preparing a successor to the recently unveiled Moto Edge X30, aptly named Moto X40. This device has now made its way to the China Compulsory Certification database, also referred to as 3C, thus confirming the phone’s imminent arrival.

Based on the information we have on the phone so far, it could feature Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which is yet to be announced. Renowned industry source Digital Chat Station has recently divulged that the phone will carry a full HD+ resolution screen as well as a 50MP primary rear camera.
