Nio is gearing up for a significant announcement, the unveiling of its first-ever smartphone, the Nio Phone, on September 21st. This highly-anticipated device was spotted last month on AnTuTu’s database with the model number N2301 and has since been spotted again in the 3C certification platform database.
The 3C listing for the Nio Phone suggests that it might come with a charger capable of up to 100W fast charging. While the battery capacity remains undisclosed, the rapid charging capability indicates a focus on enhancing user experience. Simultaneously, Nio's recent launch of the updated EC6 SUV in China, priced at approximately 358,000 Yuan (around $49,820), also provided a potential peek at the Nio Phone's design. The visuals shared suggest the phone could have a curved display, which might be more expansive than the standard 6.7-inch screens that most smartphones sport today. A noticeable feature is a custom button on the device's left side.
Interestingly, the shared images indicate the possibility of the EC6's centre console wirelessly charging the Nio Phone. This hints at the phone's support for wireless charging capabilities. Furthermore, current reports suggest that the phone will come equipped with a 120Hz AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset clocked at 3.36GHz, LPDDR5x RAM, UFS 4.0 storage, and a triple camera setup, all running on Android 13. As for the available configurations, expectations are set on three variants: 12GB RAM + 1TB storage, 16GB RAM + 512GB storage, and 16GB RAM + 1TB storage.
