Motorola President Sergio Buniac revealed at the Qualcomm Tech Summit earlier in the week that the corporate is functioning on a new Moto G phone powered by a Snapdragon 800-series chipset.
Though it is not clear yet if the device will feature Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 chipset, one among the reliable leakers Evan Blass has now posted the primary render of the upcoming Moto G phone in a post on Voice.
The phone will likely debut sometime early next year to take on a number of the best Android phones within the value flagship segment, including Samsung’s Galaxy S20 FE and the Google Pixel 5.
The render reveals a design that appears to be very almost like the Moto G 5G Plus that the Lenovo-owned company launched earlier this year. We see dual hole-punch cutouts on the top-left corner of the display and a sizeable chin at the bottom.
As per Blass, the upcoming device is codenamed “Nio” and will include a USB-C port with support for a “DisplayPort Alternate Mode,” making it possible for users to connect the phone to external monitors. As teased by the company earlier in the week , it’s working on a desktop mode kind of like Samsung DeX.
According to XDA Developers, the upcoming device is going to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset, paired with at least 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. It is also expected to pack a large 5,000mAh battery and a unique 105Hz refresh rate display.
