Motorola’s latest One series phone has been officially unveiled. The new One Vision is a premium mid-range smartphone that is the first from the company with a punch-hole display and features a 48MP camera, not from Sony, but from Samsung.

Motorola has officially revealed the One Vision, its first smartphone with a punch-hole display. Interestingly, the display also adopts the 21:9 aspect ratio found on Sony’s new Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 smartphones except instead of calling it CinemaWide, Motorola is calling it CinemaVision. At 6.3-inches, it will be quite tall as well, but the advantage is the movies won’t show black bars on the screen and multitasking is enhanced.

The Motorola One Vision also packs 48MP sensor on the rear, in addition to a 25MP sensor peaking through the display on the front. Except, unlike just about every other 48MP camera sensor shipping in smartphone today it is an ISOCELL sensor made by Samsung. Motorola said it features QuadPixel technology which effectively bins for individual pixels to turn them into one larger pixel for capturing more light.

The Samsung connection for the One Vision doesn’t end there either. It is one of the first non-Samsung branded smartphones to run a Samsung Exynos chip. In this case, it is an Exynos 9609 matched with 4 GB of RAM with AI smarts designed for mid-range smartphones. It comes with 128 GB of storage as the standard configuration but also supports microSD cards up to 512 GB. It is powered by a decent 3,500mAh battery and wrapped in bronze or sapphire colored enclosures.

The Motorola One Vision goes on sale in Brazil today priced from the equivalent of US$490 and will be followed by launches in Mexico and Europe. There are currently no plans to launch the device in States.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have been particularly interested in all things Apple, but also enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture.
