The Motorola One Vision was announced today at an event in Brazil. The new mid-range device packs some pretty interesting features but its price tag (in Brazil) is on the high side.
The Motorola One Vision’s stand-out feature is its display. It has a 6.3” FHD+ (1080 x 2520) display with a 21:9 aspect ratio which means it is pretty tall. Motorola has named it CinemaVision (similar to Sony’s CinemaVision display) and unlike Sony’s own display, this one has a punch hole. A pretty big one at that. There is a bit of bezel at the bottom of the screen too but that is expected. With the CinemaVision display, you should enjoy the cinematographic experience it provides.
The phone is powered by the Exynos 9609, a 2.2GHz octa- processor that is paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. A hybrid dual SIM slot will let you swap the second SIM for a MicroSD card (512GB max.).
Another selling point of the Motorola One Vision is its cameras. It has a 48MP f/1.7 Quad Pixel camera with OIS on the back and it is paired with a 5MP f/2.2 depth sensor. The camera has a feature called Night Vision for incredible shots at night similar to the Pixel’s own Night Sight. Other camera features are 8x digital zoom, Portrait mode, Cinemagraph mode, Best Photo, Instant Camera, and YouTube Live mode e.t.c.
The punch hole is home to a 25MP f/2.0 Quad Pixel selfie camera which also has 8x digital zoom, Cinemagraph mode, Auto HDR, a manual mode, portrait mode, and a YouTube Live mode. The phone is an Android One device, so you get Google Photos as the default gallery app and free backup of high-quality photos.
The Motorola One Vision runs Android 9 Pie and has Motorola-exclusive features (Moto Actions). Motorola says the phone will get updated to Android Q and Android R and will receive security updates for 3 years starting from its launch this month.
There is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. It packs a 3500mAh battery with support for TurboPower ultra-fast charge.

The phone is available in Sapphire Blue and Bronze with a double gradient layer, rounded edges, and 4D glass. The phone is priced at R$ 1,999 (~$500) and is available right away for purchase on the official Motorola Brazil site. That is pretty expensive no doubt but the high price is as a result of Brazil’s high tax. Included in the box are a protective case and stereo headphones.
The phone will be available in Mid-May in Europe with a price tag of €299 (~$335). It will be available in Saudi Arabia and Thailand tomorrow (May 16th) and in Asia, the Middle East, and Australia in the coming months.
