Motorola Nio set to become the latest Moto flagship, could feature Snapdragon 865 and Android 11 OS

Lenovo-owned company Motorola is expected to launch a flagship device in the market after a series of budget and mid-range devices.

Lenovo-owned Motorola is working on the latest flagship-level device dubbed as Motorola Nio. Earlier in 2020, Motorola made a comeback in the flagship market with the launch of Motorola Edge+. Now, Motorola seems set to launch another flagship with the upcoming Nio.

According to a report from German outlet TechnikNews in collaboration with Adam Conway, the Lenovo-based smartphone giants are working on a high-end handset with the model number XT2125. The device is given the codename of “Nio” and will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 similar to the Motorola Edge+.

Motorola Nio rumoured Specifications and Features

In terms of rumored specs and features, Nio is likely to sport a Full HD+ display with 1,080 x 2,520p resolution. The highlight of Nio is the top-end Snapdragon 865 SoC from Qualcomm that is perfectly complemented by 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There could be an improved variant with 12GB of RAM with 256GB of internal storage but it isn’t confirmed yet.

When talking about the camera specs, Nio houses a triple camera setup at the rear with a stunning 64MP wide-sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP depth sensor.  Nio has an amazing rear camera setup that allows you to capture memorable moments in crystal clear clarity. Moreover, the device also comes with a 16MP wide-angle front camera with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle secondary lens to take stylish selfies.

Motorola Nio likely to come with an unusual 105Hz refresh rate

Interestingly, the report from TechnikNews claimed that Nio will feature a 90Hz refresh rate. But a tweet from Mishaal Rahman of XDA Developers has revealed that this is not the case. In fact, Motorola Nio could support an unusual 105Hz refresh rate.

Nio is likely to have the latest Android 11 out of the box and is tipped to launch at the end of the first quarter in 2021. However, it remains to be seen whether Nio debuts as the successor to Moto Edge+ or if it is launched as an affordable flagship handset.
