We are used to seeing smartphones with display sporting a 60Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz, or even 144Hz refresh rate, but 105Hz? No. But Motorola could soon launch a flagship phone called the ‘Nio’ with a 105Hz refresh because, well, no one actually knows. We’ve got that and more for you after the break.
Is it a case of the well-known proverb – “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”? It’s unclear, but it could just be Motorola attempting to set itself apart from brands using 90Hz and 120Hz displays.
The Motorola XT2125 or ‘Nio’ as it known internally, is said to sport a big 6.7-inch display with an FHD+ resolution of 2560 x 1080, be powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor and 8GB of RAM with 128GB of built-in storage. A 5,000mAh battery keeps the lights on and Audio Zoom is present, a feature that uses the handset’s microphones to adapt the audio focus when zooming in or out.
The trio of rear cameras include a 64MP main sensor, a 16MP sensor that could be an ultra-wide lens, as well as a 2MP sensor that will likely be a dedicated Depth or Macro lens. The Nio apparently has dual selfie cameras consisting of a 16MP ultra-wide angle lens and an 8MP sensor.
So, that’s what we can look forward to the Motorola Nio, a phone that will probably launch running Android 11 when it’s officially unveiled. When that will be is anyone’s guess at this point but it shouldn’t be too long to wait.
