Lenovo launched a slew of products at its annual Tech Life event at IFA 2019, and one of the lot that got people talking was the motorola one zoom. The attention-grabbing, satin-smooth new addition to the motorola one family boasts a quad-camera system on the back, and will cost just USD450 in the US or EUR429 in Europe.

The one zoom comes after the original motorola one last year, and subsequent motorola one vision and motorola one action models.

While the world is bombarded with a plethora of shiny, gradient-effect backings of phones like the Huawei P30 Pro, Galaxy Note 10, and more, the motorola one zoom embraces a satin-like matte finish. No gloss means no fingerprints and smudges, definitely a welcome thing these days. It comes in Electric Grey, Cosmic Purple, and Brushed Bronze colour options.

I’m kind of digging the rectangular camera array, which looks distinctive and thankfully symmetrical. 

The 6.4-inch Full HD+ OLED Max Vision display (2340×1080) looks pretty good and comes integrated with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It comes protected with 2.5D Panda King glass, while the rear get 3D Gorilla Glass 3.

Under the hood, the motorola one zoom packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 coupled with 4GB of RAM a 128GB of storage. So, expect respectable upper mid-range performance.

Motorola claims up to two days of battery life from the 4,000mAh cell, which fast charges via USB-C. An 18W TurboPower charger is included in the box. 

In case you’re wondering, it does feature a 3.5mm headphone jack (phew) together with mono down-firing speakers and three microphones.

What’s interesting is the quad-camera system on the rear comprising a 48MP f/1.7 Quad Pixel main sensor with OIS and PDAF; 16MP wide-angle (117-degree); 8MP telephoto (3x optical zoom, OIS); and 5MP depth sensor. 

On the front, you’ll find a substantial 25MP f/2.0 selfie camera with Quad Pixel technology, ensuring well-exposed selfies no matter the lighting condition.

Speaking of which, thanks to artificial intelligence, you’ll get AI Shot Optimisation, Smart Composition, AI Auto Smile Capture, Night Vision, Portrait Lighting, and more. 

For videos, the motorola one zoom shoots up to 1080p@30 with its rear camera, and up to 4K Ultra HD (30fps).

The dual-SIM device comes with a hybrid SIM tray (2xSIM or 1SIM + microSD), NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac dual-band (2.4GHz & 5GHz).

What’s surprising is that it doesn’t run Android One like its motorola one siblings, just plain Android 9 Pie.

Pricing and availability

The motorola one zoom retails for USD450/EUR499 (MYR1,877) and is available now in the US and Europe.
