Leaker shows off upcoming Motorola G smartphone codenamed ‘nio’

The smartphone sports dual hole-punch selfie cameras

This past week, mobile chip-maker Qualcomm revealed its new Snapdragon 888 processor at its annual Tech Summit Digital 2020 event.

While the new chipset is an interesting step forward for mobile processors, Sergio Buniac, Motorola’s president, revealed that his company would release a Moto-G branded handset powered by a Snapdragon 800-series processor.

The device that will house this processor is codenamed “nio,” according to often-reliable leaker Evan Blass. Blass leaked the Motorola-made handset image, showcasing its large display and double hole-punch selfie cameras in the top right corner.

The nio is rumoured to feature at least 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, Android 11 and a 5,000mAh battery. Similar to Samsung’s Dex feature, Motorola’s nio is also tipped to sport a feature called ‘DisplayPort Alternate Mode’ that will let it connect to external monitors.

Other reports indicate that the handset features a 6.6-inch Full HD+ screen with a 2520 x 1080 pixel resolution and 64-megapixel primary shooter alongside a 16-megapixel wide-angle camera lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

Previous leaks regarding the nio from XDA Developers and Gadgets 360 indicate that the handset sports this year’s Snapdragon 865 processor and that it will feature a 105Hz display refresh rate.
