Motorola is expanding its Moto One lineup quite fast. After launching a bunch of phones like Motorola One Zoom, Motorola One Action, Motorola One Vision. the company has introduced the all-new Moto One Macro in India. And as it is evident from the name of the phone itself, it has got a macro lens that will help users take ultra-close shots.
The Moto One Macro can focus on subjects as close as 2 cm. For macro shots, there is a 2-megapixel sensor with 1.75µm pixels. That’s the main highlight but the phone comes with a triple-camera setup on the back. Also, this time, the pricing is good at Rs. 9,999.
The Moto One Macro features a 6.2-inch HD+ LCD display (720x1520px) with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The phone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P70 chipset, which is quite similar to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675 chipset in terms of performance. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. There is a hybrid slot for memory expansion and SIM cards, but the sacrifice is obvious- Users can either put two Nano-SIM cards or a Nano-SIM card along with a microSD card into the hybrid slot.
Now, in terms of camera, as mentioned earlier, it has got a triple-camera setup on the back. And we have already talked about the macro lens. The primary shooter is a 13-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and a pixel size of 1.12µm. The camera is capable of shooting full HD 1080p videos at 60fps. It can also record slow-mo videos at 120fps. Apart from the mains sensor, there is also a 2-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel camera for video calls and selfies.
The Moto One Macro, despite having the keyword ‘One’ in its name, is not a phone under the Android One program. However, the phone runs Android 9 Pie out of the box with a few modifications and changes here and there. Motorola has promised Android 10 on this device and two years of security patches in the future. We all know how Motorola keeps its promises! The Moto One Macro packs a 4000mAh battery with support for Rapid Charging- That’s what Motorola is saying. Looks like it’s 10W charging instead of the typical 15W or 18W Turbo Charging, which is very typical on Motorola smartphones. This time, in a budget phone like this also, Motorola has opted for USB-C for charging and data transfer. Also, the 10W charger is included in the box.
As of now, the Moto One Macro has been launched only in India, where the phone will go for sale on Flipkart for a price of Rs. 9999 or $140 (approx.). However, there is just one color option available- Space Blue. It is beings said that the global launch will happen soon and the phone will be brought to markets in the US, Latin America, and Europe on October 24.
