Earlier tips may have offered a glimpse of an early-2021 premium mobile device from Motorola. Now, another suggests that the OEM also has more affordable phones in the works. They are said to have the code-names Capri and Capri Plus, one of which may have a 90Hz display.

Motorola's next high-end phone is now said to run on the Snapdragon 865 - or even 888 - processor and to run Android 11 out of the box. According to new rumors, the same OEM is also working on additional new phones that will also run this OS. However, they might end up in a much lower tier compared to the rumored "Nio".

Nevertheless, they also have intriguing new code-names of their own. The "Capri" (or XT2127) is said to have an HD+ display with a standard 60 hertz (Hz) screen and an 8MP waterdrop notch. Its SoC may be the Snapdragon 460, paired to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

This device is also now touted to have 48+8+2+2MP rear cameras, dual SIM and possibly NFC. It might launch alongside a Plus variant (or XT2129). This putative phone is now said to have a 90Hz refresh rate for its own HD+ screen. There may also be an additional 6GB RAM/128GB internal storage option for this higher-end option.

The "Capri Plus" may also have 64+13+2+2MP rear shooters. This new tip has been published by TechnikNews in conjunction with Adam Conway, as was the first leak concerning the "Nio". It does not mention which processor the new Plus is supposed to have, however. Then again, it does point to a first-quarter launch for it and its possibly cheaper sibling.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
