Motorola has announced a new smartphone called the Motorola One Vision. At the moment, it's unknown when Motorola will launch the One Vision in India, but with the company losing the battle to Chinese companies, we might see it bringing the One Vision to the sub-continent in the next few weeks. The phone comes with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display which has an aspect ratio of 21:9; We have seen the same screen used by Sony on its smartphones and it's now being used by Motorola. Let's dive in and see what the Motorola One Vision has in store for us.
The "Vision" in the phone's name refers in part to this unusual display, but it's also Motorola's way of drawing attention to the dual camera around back.
The phone also isn't waterproof, as it has an IP rating of IP56, so it should be able to handle some sweat and rain but it isn't one you should take in the shower.
There is a fingerprint scanner at the back as well. The smartphone has 128GB of internal storage along with a hybrid card slot. I think this is the most disappointing feature of the phone.
Powering the mid-range processor inside the One Vision will be a 3500 mAh battery, capable of fast charging. Moto promises up to 7 hours of use time after just 15 minutes of charging from 0%.
The camera is where this phone begins to become even more interesting. Motorola's camera software provides added AI features like shot optimization and a Night Vision mode.
There's also a 5MP secondary lens on the rear of the phone that is used for depth sensing, so you can make bokeh shots where you blur the background of photos to ensure focus on certain elements of the image. Motorola said it features QuadPixel technology which effectively bins for individual pixels to turn them into one larger pixel for capturing more light.
That means that despite the megapixel count you're only going to be able to take the equivalent of 12MP shots with the phone's rear camera, but it's still a powerful shooter that creates some lovely images in our limited testing so far.
On the software front, the phone is running stock Android Pie and is part of the Android One program, promising two major OS updates and three years of security update support.
