Motorola One Hyper: $400 Android 10 phone with a pop-up selfie cam

Both lenses are created to perform well in low light, and they're not the only highlights of the Motorola One Hyper, as it also has a 6.5-inch 1080 x 2340 LCD screen with 395 pixels per inch. That puts it at the same price as Google's Pixel 3a, which just has a single rear camera but also benefits from Google's software smarts. The fingerprint sensor is on the back, with a light-up ring around it. After the Motorola One Zoom and its four rear cameras, and the Motorola One Action with its triple lenses and video optimization, we're getting the Motorola One Hyper.

The Motorola One Hyper has been launched with the latest Android 10 OS.

The Motorola One Hyper is a sleek, attractive phone selling for an affordable price.

Inside, there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage plus a MicroSD card slot. Motorola doesn't usually sell its One-line phones in the U.S. at all, but the company says that past critiques have spurred it to sell the phone direct-to-consumer from its website.

As for that box, you'll have to go to Motorola's own online store to actually acquire it. The phone uses a nano-SIM. Outside the USA - the Motorola One Hyper is also coming to Latin America and parts of Europe - there will be a Fresh Orchid color. Again, this Deep Sea Blue color is the only color you'll find here. It also has an audio jack, Dolby Audio, and a USB Type-C port.

"The 6.5" 19:9 display is an IPS LCD, and it looks fine to my eyes; nothing special, nothing bad.

Of course, this is far from the world's first handset to adopt a hidden selfie camera purportedly capable of popping up in "less than a second" when you need to use it, and devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro have proven exceptionally reliable.

They found that 60 separate financial institutions were being targeted via apps that sought to exploit the loophole. Google's been good at rooting them out and removing them, but it is an ongoing battle, the researchers say.

The pop-up camera is a 32MP sensor and it can shoot quad-pixel 8MP photos too.

The main camera is joined by a 8-MP wide-angle lens with a 118-degree field of view. Motorola added their "Night Vision" tech to both cameras to help take better low-light shots.

The Motorola One Hyper has a 4000mAh battery that supports a new fast-charging technology it calls Hyper Charging. That processor is paired with 4GB of RAM, the only configuration being offered (at least in the U.S., I couldn't confirm regarding other markets).

The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 675 chipset, which was used in other recent models including the Moto Z4 and Zoom.

You probably don't remember this, but we've know for a pretty long time about Motorola's plans to release a phone without a notch or hole punch, helping achieve what the company is advertising as a super-premium design with an "uninterrupted 6.5-inch Full HD+ edge to edge display". The phone runs Android 10 out of the box and sports the well-liked Moto Actions. The Motorola One Hyper comes with a price label of $400, which is around Rs 28,600 in India.

"We're going for that consumer that typically, they shop on Amazon for something that is great looking with great specs, and this will be the device for them", said Motorola head of product operations Doug Michau.
