Motorola has been rumored to release a quad-camera smartphone for quite some time and it was said to be called Motorola One Pro. But a new WinFuture.de report claims that the same phone will now be released under a new name: Motorola One Zoom. It seems like Motorola wants to make it clear straight away that it is a camera-centric smartphone.
The same report also has a few Motorola One Zoom press renders showing the product design from all angles. It has a taller bezel-less 6.2-inch display but with a dot-like notch in the center. The important thing to note here is that it is not a 21:9 display like we saw with the Motorola One Action and One Vision.
On the back panel, you will find all of the four cameras housed within a separate box-like shape. It has a 48-megapixel primary sensor with quad-pixel binning technology. It means that the camera app will merge four surrounding pixels into one and will offer 12-megapixel images. It is said to be shot with more details, better contrast, and high sharpness. The other two sensors are expected to be wide-angle and zoom ones where the latter will offer up to 5x hybrid zoom. Interestingly, there will be dual optical image stabilization support.
There is another report coming from 91Mobiles which sheds more light on Motorola One Zoom specifications. It mentions that the 6.2-inch display on the phone will be of Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution and also support HDR. In terms of performance, it is said to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor coupled with 4GB and 6GB of RAM. The storage options will include 64GB and 128GB which should be microSD card supported. It is said to have a 16-megapixel front camera and the whole package will be powered by a 4,000mAh battery but no information on fast charging.
The Motorola One Zoom is said to offer USB Type-C port, NFC connectivity, and also the 3.5mm headphone jack. It is expected to cost €429 (about $480) and an official unveiling expected at IFA 2019 in Berlin.
