Motorola One Action impressive mid-ranger gets its specs confirmed via Google
Tagging Motorola's next lineup of mid-range smartphones as “decent” would be an understatement. The One Action, One Macro, and One Pro are expected to be revealed this year and at least one of them seems to be as powerful as a mid-end phone can be, at least on paper.

Details about the Motorola One Action leaked a month ago, but now we have confirmation that almost everything we reported back in June is accurate. XDA Developers spotted the One Action on the Google Play Console and Android Enterprise Recommended, and the listings contain not just many of its specs, but also a small picture.

If you haven't read our previous reports, here is a quick rundown of Motorola One Action's specs, recently confirmed by these listings. First off, the smartphone will be equipped with a Samsung Exynos 9609 processor, 4GB RAM, and 128GB internal memory. Also, the phone is confirmed to sport a massive 6.3-inch punch-hole display with a 21:9 ratio.

Unfortunately, there's no mention of the camera, something that we were excited about since one of the sensors, the so-called Action Cam, is the reason the phone is called One Action. Still, rumors claim the smartphone will boast a triple rear camera, an impressive 12.6-megapixel front-facing camera and a 3,500 mAh battery.

The Motorola One Action is an Android One smartphone and will ship with Android 9.0 Pie onboard. We can't confirm the device will be launched in the US, but we certainly expect this one to be available in Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, China, and the Asia Pacific.

Oh boys I can see you have special relationship with Moto. All that sweat and powerful talk and sponsored articles makes it all sense. Moto is overpriced , camera technology being stagnant for years on their phones.

I wouldn't say it's stagnant, night mode on One Vision is very good for its price. More stagnant is LG.

I agree LG midrange department sucks even more.

Being in the Android One program helps a lot. I have the Z3 Play and Moto X4 and enjoy them both. I do agree the cameras could use improvement, half the time I grab my wife's Galaxy S10+ if I need a good camera.

I'd rather choose an "overpriced" Moto than any cheap Chinese OEM with bloated apps. Those cheap devices don't even include OIS in their camera.

Do you know that Motorola smartphone division is owned by a Chinese company (Lenovo)?

Uhmm who doesn't? Do you know that in mobile terms, when you say "Chinese OEMs", they are typically Vivo, Xiaomi or Oppo or you don't?

Something like that only applies to closed-minded people, for any intelligent people whatever name they use on Motorola phones it's a chinese phone. And if your problem is only you don't like their preinstalled apps there are other Chinese companies that make Android One phones besides Lenovo (Xiaomi with their Mi A series). But if the source of your hatred is only because they are products of a Chinese company or even for personal reasons, then I can't say anything else.

I like the looks on this one way more than in the ONE VISION... the white on black looks so good!

Hey, I am pretty happy with my G7 Power. Watching to see what happens with midrangers. Looking good.
