Motorola One Vision with hole-punch display and 48MP camera launched

The Motorola One Vision

The Motorola One Vision was launched this week with a set of specifications that appear - at surface level - to closely follow those of the headline smartphones this season.

So that's probably why the new $335 Motorola One Vision isn't coming to the U.S. or Canada.

The One Vision breaks away from the design themes that we've seen from previous "One" smartphones and does away with the centrally-mounted display notch. You won't be able to buy it in the U.S., but Motorola will sell it in many other markets. Night photos are not always given attention but Motorola sees to it the Night Vision mode is ready. There had been a lot of leaks and rumors about this upcoming smartphone for many months. It's a pity; this phone has some powerful features for a device in this price range, including a 25-megapixel selfie camera and a rare Samsung processor.

It's also the first Motorola smartphone to offer a 21:9 aspect ratio display, dubbed "CinemaVision" by the firm, similar to that found on Sony's Xperia X10 and Xperia 10 Plus.

The phone also isn't waterproof, as it has an IP rating of IP56, so it should be able to handle some sweat and rain but it isn't one you should take in the shower.

Inside, The One Vision is powered by a Samsung Exynos 9609 processor (quad Cortex-A73 at 2.2GHz, quad Cortex-A55 at 1.7GHz) which is paired with 4GB of RAM.

"With the Android ecosystem, we empower you with helpful innovations, such as Google Assistant, and responsible features, like Digital Wellbeing, helping you focus on what matters most".

On the software front, the phone is running stock Android Pie and is part of the Android One program, promising two major OS updates and three years of security update support. The 3500mAh battery fast charges with a 15-watt adapter. The rear side of the phone is not entirely visible and only the logo of the company can be seen.

The One Vision has two cameras on the rear side- a 48MP primary sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. The 48MP sensor results in high-quality 12MP photos with reduced noise and better brightness.

It can also be used for a mode called Portrait Lighting that allows you to do artistic things like keep the subject of a photo in color while the background is black and white, or change where the sun looks to be in an image. The phone comes with a hole-punch display, a dual rear camera setup, a rear fingerprint sensor, a 21:9 display, and more.
