Motorola’s rumoured flagship smartphone under the codename ‘Nio’ could be a Snapdragon 865-powered Moto G, according to fresh leaks. The phone was reportedly in development with its key specifications being leaked previously. However, the latest leak also gives us a glimpse at the display of the phone. 

According to a report by noted leakster Evan Blass on Voice, Motorola is preparing a Moto G that is powered by a Snapdragon 800-series processor and is codenamed ‘Nio’. During the recently concluded Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2020 where the chip-maker announced the Snapdragon 888, Motorola President Sergio Buniac revealed how the company is preparing to bring Snapdragon 800-series experience to the Moto G lineup in 2021. 

The image shared by Blass showcases a phone with dual punch-hole cutouts for two selfie cameras. It seemingly has narrow side bezels and noticeable bezels on the top and bottom. In a separate report by XDA developers, it is revealed that the upcoming Moto G runs on Android 11 and supports DisplayPort Alternate Mode over Type-C. This is for the company’s dedicated desktop mode that was teased during the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2020. Essentially, users will be able to connect the phone to a display for an extended desktop functionality. 

Motorola’s upcoming flagship Moto G is rumoured to feature a 6.7-inch display with a Full HD+ (2520 x 1080 pixels) resolution along with dual selfie cameras on the top. The screen may support 105Hz or 90Hz refresh rate.

The phone is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor with an octa-core CPU and is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage option. It is expected to run on Android 11 out-of-the-box with Moto customizations.

Moto G with Snapdragon 865 reportedly has a triple camera setup on the back that consists of a primary 64MP camera that uses the OmniVision OV64B image sensor, a secondary 16MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is a 16MP primary front-facing camera along with an 8MP secondary selfie camera.

The phone is also expected to pack in a 5,000mAh battery that will likely support some kind of fast charging system. While there is no official word from Motorola about the smartphone in question, we expect the company to make things official soon.
