Consumers have an abundance of options when it comes to new smartphones these days, and it often seems like the designs and specs for all of these phones run together. Many OEMs are trying to stand out from the pack with their displays, either going with hole-punch cutouts, notches, or pop-up mechanisms for their selfie cameras.
It looks as though Motorola might be the latest to jump on the latter bandwagon with its upcoming One Hyper smartphone. This looks to be yet another mid-range offering from Motorola rather than a true flagship with top-of-the-line specs. The pop-up mechanism reportedly houses a 32MP selfie camera without a separate LED for flash.
The pop-up selfie camera allows for an unblemished 6.4-inch 1080p display (19.5:9 aspect ratio). What's interesting, however, is despite the fact that the One Hyper doesn't have a cutout or notch to contend with, there are still relatively large bezels at the top and bottom of the display (based on images previously leaked by Evan Blass).
Out back, we see a dual camera setup, with at least one of those sensors being a 64MP unit. Also visible is a rear-mounted optical fingerprint sensor that just a few years ago was state-of-the-art technology.
Rounding out the features for the Motorola One Hyper include a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC, just 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. The device is also expected to launch with Android 10, which XDA-Developers sees as a clear sign that this device won't arrive until 2020.
When we last visited what's being worked on in the Motorola labs, the company's upcoming Moto G8 Plus smartphone leaked with a triple-camera setup and a tiny display notch for its selfie camera.
