As per the post, both models will have vertical stripes that will span the length of the back panel like the standard model’s Racing Black variant. However, the “Matrix AI Vision Camera” text will be placed on the stripe and not around the camera island. The company has yet to outline the details of the hardware differences between the standard X40 GT and the Racing Edition.
Meanwhile, the Racing Edition has already been listed on the Chinese online retail platform JD.com. The listing suggests that the Racing Edition will come with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage onboard. To compare, the regular models come in two memory options – 8GB/256GB and 12GB/256GB. The full specs, price and availability details of the special edition smartphones are expected to be revealed at the launch date.
