Motorola has released a teaser image confirming a launch event for December 3rd in Brazil. The teaser does not reveal much but it confirms that the upcoming phone will have a pop-up camera. The official name of the phone is currently unknown but considering recent reports, it is likely to be the Motorola One Hyper smartphone.
It will be Motorola's first-ever pop-up camera smartphone and will join many other phones with a similar design. It means there will neither be a notched nor a punch-hole display. There will be a full-screen display experience with minimal bezels on all four sides. This upcoming phone will be the newest member of the Motorola One family which has no relation with Google's Android One initiative. Other phones in the series are One Macro, One Zoom, One Action, One Vision, and One Power.
If we go by rumors, the Motorola One Hyper is said to come with a 6.39-inch Full HD+ IPS display. It is reported to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. There will be 64-megapixel and 8-megapixel dual rear cameras along with a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
It is rumored to have a 4,000mAh battery to keep the lights on. Other rumored features include USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a fingerprint scanner. It will be running Android 10 out of the box which should be close to stock Android experience. All of these are rumored specifications but since launch event is only a week away, we will know what details are true and which ones are fake.
