Moto One Hyper brings pop-up selfie camera to the One party

Moto One Hyper brings pop-up selfie camera to the One party

The phone supports NFC, Bluetooth 5, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and, for fans of old-school headphones, or non-fans with a several drawers-ful of them, comes with a standard 3.5mm jack.

The One Hyper gets another 45W charging framework that Motorola calls the Hyper Charging.

The Motorola One Hyper is a 6.5-inch LCD display with a 2,340x1,080 pixel resolution, uninterrupted by notches thanks to the 32-megapixel, pop-up selfie camera. But, Motorola has today expanded its Moto One series with the launch of its much-rumored pop-up camera phone. Motorola has given the Smartphone a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset combined with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, the last being expandable up to 1TB.

Similarly, the 64MP sensor inside the main camera on the back tops any that came before it. The One Hyper also supports Motorola's usual suite of camera software, including the company's AI-powered night mode and shot optimization features.

The design of the phone is completely different from any of the Motorola devices launched this year.

A ring of light around the fingerprint reader on the phone's back can light up when you receive a message or alert, which is handy if you turn your phone on its face when you're not using it.

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

It further features a 64-megapixel rear camera with Night Vision mode and Quad Pixel tech and a 118-degree ultra-wide-angle lens with a laser system for enhanced images even in dark environment, Engadget reports.

Motorola One Hyper isn't a flagship smartphone. The device is only available in Blue Ocean colour at the moment whereas the Amber Red and Fresh Orchid will be out soon. The phone will also reach some Middle Eastern markets in the coming months, but it is not known if, or when, it will reach the Indian markets. In 10 minutes it can load in 12 hours worth of battery life. The phone runs near stock-Android 10 with Motorola's custom skin.

With so many updated features, the latest attempt Motorola One Hyper seems essentially a budget version of OnePlus 7 Pro.

In case you're wondering, that matches the 45W charging capabilities of Samsung's state-of-the-art Galaxy Note 10+, but predictably enough, you'll have to settle for a 15W TurboPower charger in the box or separately buy the "Hyper" power brick at an unspecified price.
