Late to the party but not the last place - Motorola to release new high end flagship

The Edge+ is currently Motorola's Flagship phone with a 90hz display with specs similar to most other flagships at the start of 2020. However recently there have been mentions of a new device named "Nio" that will have specs even better than the Edge+.


We’ve seen solid evidence that this upcoming flagship has a peak refresh rate of 105Hz, but there’s no telling if Motorola will actually ship the phone in this configuration. Given that 105Hz doesn’t divide evenly into 24 or 30, it’s possible that Motorola is only testing this refresh rate during development and will cap the refresh rate at 90Hz when the phone launches. We saw something similar when ASUS launched the ROG Phone 3 with its 144Hz display, only to find out the company was testing a 160Hz refresh rate mode before launch. Alternatively, Motorola could simply adjust the refresh rate of the display whenever there’s a video on screen to avoid any micro stutters but otherwise enable the higher 105Hz refresh rate when scrolling through the UI or apps.


As for what else we know about the phone, we know that the display resolution is 2520×1080, with a display size of 6.7-inches. It also appears to pack a 5,000 mAh battery, alongside new camera features including “audio zoom”. Audio Zoom is a feature that exists already on other smartphones from the likes of Samsung, Google, and others, and it basically uses the phone’s microphones to adjust the audio focus when you zoom in or out. Other specifications have been reported by both myself and Nils Ahrensmeier of TechnikNews. The Motorola XT2125 (codenamed “Nio”) reportedly features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and a base variant with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.

Thoughts: While regular moto models are decent, if this phone doesn't come naturally with a 865+ I think it will struggle to compete with other similar flagships, unless the price is as good as Xiaomi/Vivo/Huawei's offerings.


But hey, at least it's not the Nokia Pureview 9.3

Good luck against the Mi 10 and Mi 10T

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Moto should have stuck with Moto "E" for low end, "G" for mid "X" for high and "Z" for ultra (note tier).  Good luck to them. I had motos in the past (wife currently does) I really liked my Atrix HD.
