Last week, we came across a leak mentioning that Motorola's first quad-camera smartphone will be called Motorola One Zoom instead of the initially rumored One Pro. This information was shared by reliable tipster Roland Quandt (@rquandt) who has now shared a few more details about this upcoming smartphone.
To start off, the Motorola One Zoom is said to be a mid-range smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 being the processor of choice. It is an octa-core processor that will be clocked at 2.0GHz on the device. It will be paired with 4GB of RAM along with 128GB of UFS onboard storage. It seems like this will be the only configuration option for the smartphone.
On the back panel, it will have a quad-camera setup with a 48-megapixel Quad Bayer sensor. It will offer quad-pixel binning which will merge four surrounding pixels to deliver 12-megapixel shots with better quality and higher sharpness. It will also have dual optical image stabilization (OIS) so that your shots and videos can turn out steady.
The Motorola logo on the backside will light up but it has not been mentioned when and how. The most interesting bit of information is that the Motorola One Zoom will come with Alexa Special integration. It means that it will not be an Android One smartphone despite being part of the Motorola One lineup. Lastly, it is said to cost EUR 399 i.e. about $445 which should be for the unlocked variant.
