Motorola Moto X40 certified with 68W and 125W charging options

Yordan, 13 December 2022

The Moto X40 series is expected to arrive on December 15, when Motorola is having an event in China. We expect two devices - a vanilla Moto X40 and a Moto X40 Pro, and the 3C listing from today revealed the former will support 125W fast charging, but will also have a slower 68W option.

Currently, the 125W standard (20V/6.25A output) is the fastest for a Motorola smartphone, and we’ve seen it in the X30 Pro and Edge 30 Ultra. The XT2301-5 will be the first vanilla Moto to get triple-digit fast charging, which would be a massive selling point for the device.

The information about two charging options is in line with the two entries we saw on TENAA earlier - one with a 5,000 mAh battery, the other with 4,500 mAh. It is safe to say only the latter will support 125W as the device needs physical room for the fast-charging hardware.
