Motorola “Nio” flagship phone testing an unusual 105Hz refresh rate

The next Motorola flagship phone codenamed “Nio” is going through internal testing. It is expected to be unveiled during Q1 of next year. A tweet by XDA Member, Mishaal Rahman, reveals that the Motorola “Nio” is under testing with an unusual 105Hz refresh rate. A high refresh rate is common among flagship smartphones and is generally in the multiple of 24 or 30.

This year, Motorola also unveiled smartphones with a 90Hz refresh rate in Motorola Edge, Edge+, and Moto G 5G Plus smartphones. A 90Hz refresh rate can easily display videos in 30/60fps, and the 120Hz refresh rate can handle 24fps video. Back to the Motorola Nio, a 105Hz refresh rate is unusual and seems like the smartphone will no ship with this configuration. Most likely, it is just for testing purposes and the device will ship with a 90Hz refresh rate.

We saw the same case with ROG Phone 3 where the company was testing a 160Hz refresh rate but launched the smartphone with 144Hz refresh rate. A German publication, TechnikNews, reveals that the Motorola Nio will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. There could also be a 12GB RAM + 256GB storage.

The smartphone will feature a 6.7-inch display with 2520×1080 pixel resolution. On the back, Motorola Nio will sport a triple camera setup where the primary shooter is a 64MP OmniVision OV64B image sensor. The second one is a 16MP OmniVision OV16A10 sensor likely to act as an ultrawide lens and the last one is a 2MP depth sensor. There will be a dual-camera setup on the front side which consists of a 16MP OmniVision OV16A1Q sensor and an 8MP Samsung S5K4H7 sensor.
