The Wi-Fi Alliance certification doesn’t reveal much about the Motorola Nio specifications apart from the fact that the device supports dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz and 5GHz) and runs on Android 11. Other than this, the Wi-Fi Alliance certification tells us that the Motorola Nio smartphone is one step closer to being launched.

Motorola Nio specifications were spotted on Geekbench last month. The device is expected to come with the 2020 flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with 8GB RAM. This would make the Motorola Nio a high-end smartphone, though the use of last year’s flagship chipset will allow the company to price the device more competitively. Additionally, a live image of the smartphone was posted by tipster Evan Blass, revealing the display with two circular hole-punch cutouts for two front-facing cameras.

Motorola Nio launch date is yet to be revealed, but an earlier report suggested that the phone will arrive in Q1 2021. The report also revealed other specs, including a 6.7-inch FHD+ display with an unusual 105Hz refresh rate, 256GB internal storage, 64MP triple cameras, and 16MP dual front cameras. The smartphone is also said to come with a 5,000mAh battery, though fast charging support remains a mystery for now.
