Motorola One Vision Debuts With 6.3-inch Punch Hole Display And Samsung Exynos 9609

Motorola is expanding its smartphone family once again, this time with the announcement of the One Vision. As its name implies, this smartphone is running Google's pared down Android One operating system.

The One Vision breaks away from the design themes that we've seen from previous "One" smartphones and does away with the centrally-mounted display notch. Instead, the smartphone uses a single punch hole “CinemaVision” display, similar to what you'd see on the Samsung Galaxy S10e. That cutout houses a 25-megapixel selfie camera if you’re into that sort of thing.

Speaking of the CinemaVision display, it measures 6.3 inches diagonally and has a 21:9 aspect ratio. As for the resolution, it checks in at 2520x1080, which isn't exactly confidence-inspiring given the panel's size. 

Out back you'll find dual sensors, as with previous One smartphones. In this case, there is a 48-megapixel primary sensor (Samsung GM-1) with an f/1.7 aperture. The camera doesn't actually shoot at 48-megapixels, however. Instead, is used QuadPixel technology -- as seen on the upcoming Moto Z4-- to spit out 12-megapixel images that four times the light sensitivity as comparable 12-megapixel images. The primary sensor is joined by a depth sensor for portrait mode.

Inside, The One Vision is powered by a Samsung Exynos 9609 processor (quad Cortex-A73 at 2.2GHz, quad Cortex-A55 at 1.7GHz) which is paired with 4GB of RAM. The smartphone has 128GB of internal storage along with a hybrid card slot. The slot can either accommodate dual SIM cards or one SIM card/one microSD card. On the power front, Motorola has equipped the Moto One Vision with a respectable 3500 mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging with the TurboPower charger (included in the box).

Unfortunately, at this time it looks as though the Motorola One Vision is limited to Latin America, Brazil and parts of Europe for now. It will launch next week with a price tag of €299, which puts it at about $335.
