Motorola One Action Launched. Comes with a 90° Tilted Wide Angle Action Camera!

Published

on

Motorola launched its “One” budget line of smartphones last year. Today the Lenovo-owned manufacturer announced its latest smartphone in the series: the Motorola One Action. However it’s not the smartphone’s specs that makes it stand out from the crowd, it’s the action-camera like video quality on a smartphone.

The “Action” in the name refers to the third camera sensor on the phone. It’s a dedicated 16MP ultra-wide video camera with 117-degree field of view that has the ability to shoot videos like a GoPro. Motorola made a few tweaks in the sensor to make it different from a regular smartphone.

Apart from the super-wide field of view, Motorola also physically rotated the camera. This allows you to capture landscape photos/videos while the phone is held in portrait (and vice versa). The company has added a software-side algorithm calling it “Enhanced Video Stabilisation”. With a unique combination of hardware and software innovation, Motorola perfected this technology.

The Motorola One Action features a 6.3 inch FHD+ 21:9 CinemaVision display with a hole-punch cutout at the top left corner. Under the hood, it houses a Samsung Exynos 9609 paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage with further expandable options via microSD. The other two lens at the rear are ordinary sensors of 12MP and 5MP.

The front offers a 5MP camera with f/2.0 aperture. It draws power from a 3,500 mAh battery with 10W charging. The 3.5 mm headphone jack resides at the top with the fingerprint sensor at the back. Other features include NFC and IPX2 water resistance.

The device will be launched with different Android versions. The North American version running a customized Android 9 Pie will go on sale in US and Canada in sometime in October. It will have only one guaranteed software update with the pricing yet to be disclosed. The handset with pure Android will be available from today in Brazil, Mexico and various European countries from today starting at €259 (Rs 20,500 approx). It has Denim Blue and Polar White color options.
