Motorola announced a latest addition to its One series last week—the One Vision. The premium mid-tier series features a punch-hole display, a whopping 48MP main camera and surprise, surprise… the spanking new Samsung Exynos 9609 processor.
The One Vision comes with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ LCD display (1080×2520) with an uncommon 21:9 screen aspect ratio, protected by Gorilla Glass 4. The near bezel-less front is thanks to a punch-hole implementation on the top left of the display. That aside, there’s also a slight chin.
What’s interesting is on the inside. You see, the One Vision is one of the extremely rare non-Samsung devices to use an Exynos processor (aside from China’s Meizu). In fact, the One Vision is the first phone in the world to use Samsung’s new Exynos 9609 silicon. The Exynos 9609 is Samsung’s second SoC in the 96xx series, following the Exynos 9610 that powers the Galaxy A50.
The new chip is built on Samsung’s 10nm FinFET process and is mated to a Mali G72MP3 GPU.
The phone packs 4GB LPDDR4 RAM coupled with 128GB of storage and supports microSD expansion.
Keeping the device juiced is a above average 3,500mAh battery that charges up via USB-C. It supports TurboPower that can give you up to seven hours of power in just 14 minutes of charging.
In line with some of the mid-range and flagship devices in the market today, the highlight feature of the One Vision is its 48MP main camera. Utilising the Sony IMX586 sensor, the camera features OIS and a fast f/1.7 aperture lens. The sensor pixel bins 4:1 for 1.6-micron pixel 12MP photos (Motorola calls its Quad Pixel technology) and expectedly boasts a dedicated “Night Vision” mode for low-light captures,
There’s a secondary 5MP depth sensor for Portrait Mode and depth-of-field shots.
Over on the front, there’s a 25MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
The dual-SIM device offers a hybrid SIM tray (nano-SIM) and has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The One Vision runs Android One based on Android 9 Pie and will receive OS upgrades to Android Q and Android R. Motorola guarantees security updates for three years from the initial global launch of the device.
The Motorola One Vision costs EUR299 (~MYR1,394) and is now available in Brazil, Mexico, Europe, Saudi Arabia and Thailand. It will roll out to other Latin America countries as well as selected Asian countries and Australia in the coming months. Available in Sapphire Gradient and Bronze Gradient colour options.
Will it come to Malaysia, you ask? Based on the previous Motorola One, there’s a possibility, but assuming if it does debut, it will likely be through online retailers like Shopee or Lazada.
