Motorola has launched its latest Android One smartphone, the Motorola One Action in India. The smartphone was first launched in Brazil last week. It comes with a unique industry-first ultra-wide action camera sensor.
The Motorola One Action features a 6.3-inch CinemaVision LCD display. It has an FHD+ resolution of 1080×2520 pixels and a 21:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, there is an octa-core Exynos 9690 chipset paired with a Mali-G72MP3 GPU. It comes with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage which can be further expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card.
The latest Motorola device comes with a triple camera rear setup but the third sensor is a special one. It is a dedicated 16MP ultra-wide sensor with a 117-degree field of view which can shoot videos like a Go-Pro. The company rotated the camera because of which you can hold the handset vertically while recording horizontally (and vice versa). The “Action“ tag in the name refers to the third camera. Motorola also added a software-side algorithm calling it “Enhanced Video Stabilisation”.
The other two sensors at the back are ordinary 12MP and 5MP sensors. On the front, it sports a 5MP selfie camera placed on the punch-hole at the top left corner. The handset comes as a part of the Android One program with Android 9 Pie. It means it has no ads, third-party software and will get regular updates.
It is backed by a 3,500 mAh battery with 10W charging. Other features include NFC, 3.5 mm headphone jack and IPX2 water resistance. Connectivity options include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS and USB Type-C.
In India, the Motorola One Action is priced at Rs 13,999 and comes in Denim Blue and Pearl White color options. It will go on sale via Flipkart on August 30 at 12 PM. Launch offers include 3 months no-cost EMI from Flipkart, Rs 1,000 discount on Axis bank credit and debit cardholders and a cashback of Rs 2,200 from Jio in the form of vouchers, along with an additional 125GB data.
