Capture breathtaking details with a triple high-res camera system
Motorola’s newest edge smartphone arrives with a triple high-res camera system to capture breathtaking images and videos. The 50MP high-res camera features OIS, essential for shake-free photos, and instant all-pixel focus, which provides 32x more focusing pixels compared to traditional PDAF, resulting in faster, more accurate performance in any light3. The edge 40 pro also comes with a 50MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision and a 12MP 2x telephoto portrait camera, so users can capture everything from stunning landscapes to extreme close-ups and flattering shots of people.
For selfies, the edge 40 pro features a 60MP camera with Snapdragon’s Cognitive Image Signal Processor, which uses advanced AI to divide each scene into different segments. This ensures elements like the sky, buildings, landscapes, and skin tones are optimized independently for greater color accuracy and a photo that is more true to life.
With this new smartphone, consumers can also record cinematic-quality videos directly on their device, whether in crystal-clear 8K resolution or in 4K HDR10+, to pack over a billion shades of color into their footage.
Additionally, Motorola is introducing software features that bring this device’s exceptional camera hardware to life, including new video shooting modes to inspire creativity, such as:
– Video Night Vision: When shooting videos in low-light environments, users can switch to Night Vision mode for video to capture brighter footage with more detail, better clarity, and more accurate color.
– Horizon Lock Stabilization: When engaging in extreme sports like mountain biking or skiing, this feature keeps the user’s shots stabilized and locked onto the horizon — even while rotating the smartphone up to a full 360° during action scenes.
– Video Auto Focus Tracking: Users can enable this feature to keep the subject crystal-clear and in focus even when it’s in motion throughout the frame.
– Video Portrait (bokeh): In Video Mode, users can select Video Portrait, a bokeh setting, to automatically blur the background of videos using a new AI-based algorithm for a beautiful, soft-focus background behind the subject.
On top of these features, expect stunning images and videos when using certain social media applications, which now support specific Motorola camera functions like Dual Capture, ultrawide, and telephoto directly from the apps.
