Motorola One Vision features, specifications and price
The One Vision’s major new feature is the extra tall 21:9 display, which is an aspect ratio widely seen in cinemas. The display is almost identical to the cinema-view display seen on Sony’s Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus smartphones launched at MWC 2019 in February. The smartphone features a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display, and is another device with the new hole punch design. Smartphone makers are trying really hard to get rid of notch, and it seems that Motorola has settled on the hole punch design.
Apart from the taller display and hole punch design, Motorola is also moving away from Qualcomm and MediaTek to use Samsung’s mobile processor. Under the hood of Motorola One Vision is Samsung Exynos 9609 SoC, which is an octa-core CPU with four Cortex A73 performance cores clocked at 2.2GHz and four Cortex A55 efficiency cores clocked at 1.7GHz. The smartphone comes equipped with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Motorola One Vision features a dual rear camera setup comprising of a 48-megapixel main camera with OIS and f/1.7 aperture paired with a 5-megapixel f/2.2 apertures camera for depth sensing. The primary camera is capable of shooting 12-megapixel stills and adds new camera-centric features like shot optimization and a Night Vision mode. At the front, there is a 25-megapixel selfie shooter built into the punch hole display.
