Motorola One Zoom

Motorola is reportedly planning to launch a bunch of new devices at IFA 2019 in Berlin early next month. Earlier today, we talked about the Motorola One Action, a budget handset that is likely to see officialdom at the same event. Images of the One Action first appeared on popular German tech blog Winfuture.de. As it turns out, the One Action is not the only Motorola ‘One’ handset that is set to be unveiled there. Folks at Winfutre have posted a fresh set of images that showcase the design and hardware aspects of another device called the Motorola One Zoom. As evident from its naming scheme, the One Zoom is a camera-centric device with a crazy-looking quad-camera setup at the rear. The One Zoom is reportedly the same device that was earlier touted as the Motorola One Pro.

Let’s dive into the details of this phone.

Motorola One Zoom specifications, key features

The Motorola One Zoom is a camera-centric smartphone that features a quad-camera setup at the rear. The primary rear camera uses a 48-megapixel sensor that uses pixel binning to create 12-megapixel images. The secondary camera on the device uses an ultra-wide-angle lens with a 117-degree field of view. Motorola reportedly plans to market this as an’ Action Cam’. The third camera on the Motorola One Zoom uses a telephoto lens with support for up to 5x hybrid zoom. The fourth camera on the device will be exclusively used to gather depth information to enhance the background blur and bokeh. The depth sensor reportedly uses a 5-megapixel sensor.

Motorola One Zoom Front

Unlike the Motorola One Vision and the One Action that get an ultra-tall 21:9 display, the One Zoom seems to sport a more traditional 19.5:9 panel that measures 6.2-inches across. While not confirmed yet, the One Zoom uses an AMOLED panel with fullHD+ resolution. The handset is also likely to sport an in-display fingerprint scanner. The rear panel of the handset gets a layer of toughened glass to enhance the overall look and feel of the device. The One Zoom is also likely to feature a large battery since the handset looks relatively thicker than other devices from the company.

 

Other bits about the handset – including the processor – remains shrouded in mystery. We should, however, get additional details of the phone in the next few days. As mentioned earlier, the Motorola One Zoom is likely to be announced along with a bunch of other Motorola devices during IFA 2019 at Berlin. Current reports peg the price of the One Zoom to be around the USD 480 mark.
