Motorola P40 renders leak as punch-hole slowly becomes a trend

Motorola P40 renders leak as punch-hole slowly becomes a trend

Motorola's 2019 "P" series phone is said be available in worldwide markets as well, unlike its predecessor, which is limited to China. Considering more and more smartphone makers are planning to bring the punch hole display, chances of the technology ruling 2019 are high.

The Motorola P-series is a new series that was unveiled by the Lenovo-owned company this year. While the Motorola P40 in China will come with some custom skin on top, the global variant as an Android One device should ship with stock Android Pie out-of-the-box. It's likely the display's touch capabilities run over this area too - much like the first phones like this, made by Samsung.

With Samsung, Honor, and possibly now Motorola adopting the hole-punch display design, it's increasingly looking like that could be a popular smartphone trend in 2019. The front side has a relatively significant bezel, but probably no more significant than that of the most recent big-screen Apple phone, the iPhone XR.

According to the latest report, the Motorola P40 will come with a 6.2-inch display and will also be a camera powerhouse with a 48MP rear camera.

The pictures have the selfie camera as a hole on the top left of the 6.2-inch display; camera details are now unavailable. The USB Type-C port, mic and speaker grille are at the bottom.

The Moto P40 will measure 160.1 x 71.2 x 8.7 mm, but the camera bump will stick out to 10 mm. Motorola isn't ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack as of yet and the jack will be placed on the top edge of the phone. The megapixel of the secondary camera of the P40 is yet to be revealed. The dual shooter on the back will be in a vertical fashion, while the fingerprint scanner will have a Moto logo.
