Motorola has finally unveiled the Motorola One Vision, the first Motorola smartphone with a punch-hole display or a circular cutout in the top-left corner of the display to house the selfie camera. For starters, this SoC is near-identical to the Exynos 9610 SoC that is also used on the Samsung Galaxy A50. The primary sensor is accompanied by a 5MP depth shooter. Likely around a day thanks to a 3,500mAh battery. As for video recording, the phone can shoot 4K footage at 30 fps. The phone's main sensor on the back uses Quad Pixel technology that combines four pixels into one, and as a result, produces boosted 12-megapixel photos.

We will continue to partner with Google to exceed software requirements and deliver monthly security updates for 3 years, an up-to-date OS, and a simple interface through Android One. The 3500mAh battery fast charges with a 15-watt adapter.

The Motorola One Vision runs Android 9 Pie and has Motorola-exclusive features (Moto Actions). Our new portrait lighting feature uses AI to add attractive lighting effects to your subject's face, while auto smile capture and smart composition ensure your photos are always Insta-ready. Once this feature is enabled, the phone can look at the photo you just took; if it "sees" that the image is slightly skewed, it'll crop and level the image to look a little tidier.

Motorola is also adding a few artificially intelligent smarts into the camera too, but it's largely playing catch-up to the rest of the industry. Others, like AI shot composition, are a little more nuanced. The Night Vision is especially useful in dark lighting situations. However, that is not stopping them from launching new smartphones.


Let's check out full specs, price and availability details here.

The phone comes in Bronze and Sapphire color options and will sell globally, but not in the U.S or Canada.

At an affordable price of around $300 (EUR 300 in Europe), the Motorola One Vision will be available for purchase today in Brazil and certain parts of Europe. On May 16, the phone will launch in Saudi Arabia and Thailand. Over the following weeks, the phone will also be getting a wider release in Latin America, as well as a roll-out across Asia, Middle East, and Australia. Pricing will vary by market.
