Motorola’s ‘Nio’ Flagship for 2021 is Expected to Feature Dual Selfie Camera, 105Hz Display

Motorola Edge+

Motorola is working on its flagship offering for the next year. The 2021 Motorola flagship will be called “Nio,” and it is expected to feature a display with 105Hz refresh rates. This is very weird since most of the displays either support 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rates. The “Nio” is a codename, and the final name is yet to be revealed/leaked.

The folks at XDA have an explanation for the rather unusual display refresh rate. Typically smartphone manufacturers test a higher peak refresh rate. For instance, Asus was testing ROG Phone 3 with a display refresh rate of 160Hz. However, the Rog Phone 3 launched with a 144Hz display. It shows that Motorola might be testing a 105Hz refresh rate; however, the final product is expected to offer a lesser refresh rate.

The Motorola Nio is expected to come with an FHD display that offers a maximum resolution of 1080 x 2520 pixels. Furthermore, the punch hole on the front houses a dual selfie camera. Powering the device is Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 paired with 8GB of RAM. On the storage front, you get 128GB of internal storage.
