Motorola is now said to have a new high-end device in the works that might run Android 11 out of the box. It is also touted to have at least 8GB of RAM and a 64MP main camera. A leaker also now claims it will have a rather unusual refresh rate for its display: 105 hertz (Hz).
The blog TechnikNews, in collaboration with the XDA contributor Adam Conway, has purported to present a leak concerning a new Motorola phone. It apparently has the new code-name Nio, although it may also run on the same Snapdragon 865 SoC as the Edge+.
It is also said to have camera sensors made by either OmniVision or Samsung, the OV64B 64MP sensor included. Otherwise, this “Nio” might have between 8 and 12GB of RAM, with up to 256GB of internal storage.
Therefore, it is shaping up to be a more or less typical premium-ish device. However, another tipster, Mishaal Rahman, also now insists it will have the non-standard refresh rate of 105Hz. The display in question is also said to be FHD+ and to measure 6.7 inches diagonally.
It is not clear why Motorola may have chosen this setting: perhaps it is intended to conserve battery life. However, the “Nio” lacks an approximate launch date or price as yet.
