If true, Motorola may be planning to release a Snapdragon 865 early next year that should be less expensive than the newer Snapdragon 875 devices.
A new leak emerged regarding a Motorola phone codenamed “Nio”, featuring an aging Snapdragon 865 chipset and 64MP triple-camera setup. According to rumors, this Nio device might be the successor to the Motorola Edge+ that launched last April. But based on the preliminary specs, we speculate that it’s the
standard Snapdragon 865 version of the Edge. After all, the company never released the non-Plus model of the Edge+ only released the Snapdragon 765 mid-range variant of the Edge+.
Speaking of specs, Moto Nio is packing 8GB/128GB (with a possibility of 12GB/256GB), 90 FHD+ display, 64MP+16MP+2MP from OmniVision, a 16MP OmniVision selfie camera as well, but with 8MP ultrawide from Samsung. Unlike the Edge+, it’ll run Android 11 out of the box.
The Edge+ was an expensive phone during launch, costing $999(~P50,000). Given the timing of the Nio as well as its chipset, there’s a good chance that the device will be much less expensive.
