Motorola's triple-camera phone could use a Samsung processor

The Motorola One Vision has only just been announced, but if a new benchmark listing (via Nashville Chatter) is anything to go by, it could soon be joined by a superior sibling called the Motorola One Action.
Expected to launch at some point in the near future, the upcoming Android One device has been spotted on Geekbench running Android 9 Pie and powered by a Samsung processor. In the past, Motorola has remained loyal to Qualcomm’s line of Snapdragon chips, but this year the company seems to be going all-in with Samsung when it comes to Android One devices.
Regarding the exact chip that’s in use, the listing mentions the presence of Samsung’s ‘erm9610.’ Considering the name, the most logical assumption would be that Motorola is using the Exynos 9610. But as previous Motorola One Vision listings have shown us, ‘erm9610’ actually refers to a modified Exynos 9610 known as the Exynos 9609. In terms of performance, both chips are almost on par, but the Exynos 9609 is a little slower. As for the RAM count, the One Action includes 4GB.
From the look of things, the Motorola One Action won’t offer too many internal benefits when compared to the Motorola One Vision. However, as previous leaks have shown us, there will be one big change to the external hardware.
Acting as Motorola’s first triple-camera smartphone, the One Action looks set to arrive equipped with three vertically-aligned sensors on the rear. Rumor has it the smartphone will ditch the 48-megapixel snapper found on the One Vision in favor of a superior 12-megapixel alternative. There’s also expected to be a second 12-megapixel sensor paired with optical zoom capabilities and a third sensor that could offer a super-wide-angle lens. A dual-tone LED flash is also set to make the cut.
