After launching the Moto G7 series of phones, Motorola is back with another smartphone, namely, the Motorola One Vision. The One Vision is part of the company's One lineup of phones and it's part of Android One programme. However, the highlight of the phone is not the software, in fact, it's the 21:9 display found on the front of the phone. Motorola is the first brand to launch a smartphone with 21:9 display in India. Besides the display, the Motorola One Vision comes powered by Samsung's Exynos 9609 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Also, the phone has a punch-hole selfie camera and a 48MP sensor is present on the rear side. The phone comes in a single variant that is priced at Rs 19,999.
Motorola One Vision: Specifications and Features
Starting off with the display, the One Vision packs a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with 21:9 aspect ratio and 1080 x 2520 pixels resolution. This screen deviates from the trend of 19:9 display smartphones which we have been seeing for a while now. There's a punch-hole selfie camera on the top left corner and it comprises of a 25MP unit. Motorola has launched the One Vision in two colour options- Bronze and Sapphire. The phone measures 8.7mm in thickness and weighs just over 180 grams.
Underneath, Motorola has used the Samsung Exynos 9609 chipset, which works in tandem with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. As noted, the phone comes in a single variant and it allows users to expand storage via microSD card. Software side of things, the One Vision runs Android 9 Pie out of the box and comes with a promise of two major software updates. It's backed by a 3500mAh battery with fast charging support.
Cameras on the smartphone include a 48MP primary shooter and a 5MP depth sensor on the rear side. Sadly, Motorola has used the Samsung GM1 sensor on the back side and it's not the Sony IMX586 sensor. Up front, users get to click selfies via a 25MP shooter. The fingerprint scanner is present on the rear side and it's not an in-display one.
Motorola One Vision: Pricing and Availability
Motorola has launched the One Vision in just one variant and in two colours. The price of the sole variant is set as Rs 19,999 and it takes on the Samsung Galaxy A50 which also has a similar processor. The One Vision will be exclusive to Flipkart in India and the first sale will take place on June 27 at 12 PM.
Motorola One Vision: Competitors in India
The primary competitor to the One Vision is Samsung's Galaxy A50, which is available at Rs 18,490 across offline stores. It's unknown at the moment whether Motorola is planning to see the One Vision via offline stores.
As for the comparison, the Galaxy A50 is powered by the Exynos 9610 chipset, while the One Vision has Exynos 9609 chipset. The Exynos 9609 SoC on the One Vision is a slightly underclocked version of Exynos 9610, so the performance will not be noticeable between the two phones. The One Vision has a bigger battery in the form of 5000mAh unit and the 21:9 display will be a boon for heavy multimedia consuming users.
That said, the Galaxy A50 offers triple rear cameras, AMOLED display and an in-display fingerprint scanner along with catchy design.
