Back in March, we showed you some leaked press renders for the Motorola One Vision. A couple of days ago, a render appeared showing the phone in blue compared to the brown it wore in the previously leaked images. And today, WinFuture published (via Android Police) a complete set of Motorola One Vision renders along with the handset's specs. The device is unique for a Motorola phone in many ways. First of all, instead of using a Snapdragon chip it is powered by Samsung's Exynos 9609 chipset with an octa-core CPU running at a maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz. This compares to the Exynos 9610 SoC that is employed on some Galaxy A models. The only difference is that the latter chip has a slightly higher maximum 2.3GHz clock speed. Meizu is the only other third-party manufacturer to use an Exynos chip for some of its handsets.
The Motorola One Vision sports a 6.3-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2520 (FHD+). That works out to an aspect ratio of 21:9 providing users with the tall and thin screen that improves the cinematic experience of watching videos on the device. Movies viewed in landscape will stretch edge-to-edge, although the punch-hole selfie snapper found in the upper left corner of the display could be a nuisance.
The phone will receive two years of OS updates
On the back is a dual camera setup mounted vertically and it features a 48MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.7 and optical image stabilization (OIS). By default, the camera takes 12MP shots. The specs of the second camera are unknown. Motorola will offer a Night Vision mode and a mode for making movies. 4K video shoots at 30fps and 1080p video at 60fps. A fingerprint scanner will also be found in back, wearing Motorola's iconic bat wings logo. The One Vision comes with 4GB of memory and 128GB of expandable storage. Bluetooth 5.0 is on board along with a 3500mAh battery. And yes, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack on the phone. There is no mention of any IP rating, but Motorola often uses nanocoating from P2i to protect its phones from light rain and spills. Android 9 Pie is pre-installed.
Press render of the Motorola One Vision
As an Android One phone, the Motorola One Vision will have stock Android and it will receive two years of OS upgrades. It will come in Blue and Bronze Brown and should be unveiled in Brazil on May 15th. The phone is expected to be available for purchase on the very next day. A version for the U.S. is expected. As far as pricing is concerned, there is talk of a 299 Euro ($336 USD) price tag. In some markets, the Motorola Verve earbuds, sold separately for 130 Euros ($146 USD), will be included for free with the purchase of the phone as an incentive for early buyers of the device. In addition, as an Android One phone, it should offer users free unlimited storage of photos in high quality.
If the Motorola One Vision is priced at under $340 in the U.S., it will undercut the price of the Motorola One, which is currently offered at a reduced price of $349.99 in the states. And now Motorola has to deal with the recent introduction of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. Priced at $399 and $479 respectively, the Pixels are known for their outstanding cameras and quick Android updates. Motorola might have to be mindful of the new mid-range models when pricing the phone in the U.S.
