Motorola was recently rumored to be working on the successor of its Motorola Edge+, and it was tipped to be codenamed Nio. Later, it was revealed that Nio was a G-series device with high-end specifications, including a flagship chipset. Recently, a new Motorola device has appeared online with the moniker ‘Motorola Edge S’, and the company also teased its launch. Now, live hands-on images of the device have leaked online.
First spotted and reported by Nils Ahrensmeier(@NilsAhrDE), these images appeared on Weibo a couple of days ago. The device is seen sporting a dual punch-hole screen at the front. On the rear lies a Moto G 5G Plus-like quad-camera setup. Plus, there’s a “64MP camera” and “Audio Zoom” branding below the camera module. As per previous reports, the Motorola Nio could feature an FHD+ (2520 x 1080 pixels) panel that offers a 90Hz refresh rate. The main camera uses the 64MP sensor and is assisted by an 8MP secondary camera that uses Samsung’s S5K4H7 sensor.
