THE Motorola launched on Friday (16) the Motorola One Action, a smartphone with an ultrawide action camera. The cell phone, which reaches the Brazilian market with a suggested price of R $ 1,799, is the first of the brand with a triple camera at the rear, one of which can shoot with a 117 degree field of view when holding the device in an upright position.
Motorola One Action inherits many features of Motorola One Vision, such as the 6.3-inch screen with Full HD + resolution, 21: 9 aspect ratio and hole in the upper left corner. The same 2.2 GHz Samsung Exynos 9609 octa-core processor and 3,500 mAh battery are here. And the version that will be marketed in Brazil also has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
The big difference is due to the rear camera. While the Motorola One Vision focused on night vision and promised to take sharper pictures in the dark, the Motorola One Action could take a place in the action camera market, like GoPro. In addition to the 12 megapixel main camera and a depth sensor, there is an Action Cam for shooting with a wider field of view.
The upshot of the ultrawide camera is that Motorola rotated the image sensor 90 degrees. This means that you record with the device vertically, but the video is horizontal. It is a safer and more comfortable way to shoot, especially if you are running, skating or cycling, for example. To reduce vibrations, there is also an optional electronic image stabilization feature.
In the other cameras, Motorola One Action follows the software tricks: you can highlight a single color, leaving the rest of the image in black and white; choose a version of the photo with adjusted framing; and activate scene optimization, which suggests more saturated colors, background blur or exposure more appropriate for sunset, for example.
The rear houses a fingerprint reader and the Android One inscription, indicating that it will receive two system version updates (Android Q and Android R), in addition to three years of Google security patches, until August 2022.
This is the company’s third device that is part of the Android One program, after Motorola One and Motorola One Vision. The two arrived in Brazil less than a year ago. Motorola says that by not having a generational commitment in the One line, unlike the Moto E, G and Z families, it can launch products more quickly. In fact, we expect a Motorola One Zoom and a model without notch soon.
In Brazil, Motorola One Action will be sold in white and dark blue colors starting this Friday (16th). A greenish version will be available from September. With a suggested price of R $ 1,799, it arrives two hundred reais cheaper than the Motorola One Vision at launch.
We already have Motorola One Action in hand and the full review will be published in the coming weeks. What do you want to know about him?
