Moto G Nio with dual selfie camera spotted in leaks Moto G 5G Plus

The only notable release from Moto this year was the Moto Razr 5G smartphone, however, apart from carrying the crowd favourite design and a foldable display, the phone didn’t have much to root for. Apart from the Razr, we have the Moto Edge Plus boasting flagship specifications, however, nothing much after that.

Interestingly, after a whirlwind of announcements around the smartphones rocking the Snapdragon 880 chipset, right after the chipset was unveiled, Sergio Buniac, President of Motorola Mobility, shared a cryptic message. He stated that the company is looking to “unleash a platform with more powerful experiences in gaming, artificial intelligence, and camera technologies.”

Teasing further, he added, “in the coming year we will bring Qualcomm’s 800-series mobile platform into the moto g family.” While he did mention that the new device is expected to launch sometime next year, however, he remained non-committal around the use of the latest processor on this phone and decided to let this fact remain a mystery.

The said device could be Moto G Nio, which has been pictured for the first time thanks to a popular Evan Bass. This freshly leaked image suggests that the phone could come with a dual selfie camera setup and a large flat display with a near bezel-less design.

Incidentally, a similar smartphone with a dual selfie camera was spotted in the video talking about the upcoming features that Motorola’s plans to bring with the new platform allowing the smartphone to be used as a gaming console, a TV interface and a Samsung DeX like desktop interface. The phone may come with a DisplayPort Alternate Mode, an extension of USB Type-C to support video output to external displays. These new features are expected to come with the Android 11 update on Moto devices.
