Motorola launched a new smartphone today named Motorola One Hyper & the main USP of it is that it is the first smartphone to feature a 64 Megapixel camera sensor & a pop-up selfie camera. Priced at $399.99, the phone offers Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SOC, dual rear cameras, 4,000mAh battery with mind-blowing 40W Hyper charging, and more.

MOTOROLA ONE HYPER – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS

The design of the phone is completely different from any of the Motorola devices launched this year. This time, Motorola went for a Full-Screen design with no notch or holes. Hence, there is a pop-up selfie camera, the first for any Motorola device. On the rear, there are dual cameras placed vertically in a module that kinds of connects the rear & front camera setups.

If you notice, there is a strip that runs from the rear camera setup down to the bottom of the phone where the Motorola branding is present. That’s a nice touch. The fingerprint scanner is on the rear as well & it has a notification LED around it.

There is a 6.5-inch Total Vision display with 19:9 aspect ratio & Full-HD+ resolution (1080 x 2340) & 90% screen-to-body ratio. It is an LCD panel, so that’s the reason why Motorola went for a physical fingerprint scanner on the rear instead of an in-display fingerprint scanner. While the rear may look like glass, Motorola says it’s plastic.

The SOC powering the Motorola One Hyper is Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 & it is the same SOC that powers Motorola One Zoom. There is 4GB RAM & 128GB internal storage. The phone does have the option to expand the storage by adding a microSD card of up to 1TB.

Coming to the cameras, Motorola One Hyper has a dual-camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 64 Megapixel shooter with f/1.9 aperture & 0.8-micron pixel size. There is Quad Pixel technology to combine four pixels into one, resulting in a 16 Megapixel photo with 1.6-micron pixel size. The secondary camera is an 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle unit with 118-degree FOV. There is the Laser Autofocus as well.

Talking about that selfie camera placed in the pop-up mechanism, it is a 32 Megapixel unit & just like the rear camera, the Quad Pixel technology combines four pixels into one, resulting in 8MP shots.

The rear camera features include Night Vision, Shot Optimization, Portrait Mode, Portrait Lighting, Auto HDR, Spot Color, RAW Photos, etc. The front camera features include Portrait mode, Face beauty, Timer, Active Photo, Night Vision, Cinemegraph, Group Selfie, Live filter, & Spot color.

Finally, talking about the battery, the phone has a big 4,000mAH battery & supports 40W Hyper Charging. It is worth mentioning that in the box, you won’t get the 40W Adapter as you would need to buy it separately. Android 10 runs out of the box.

    This device looks amazing. Hope it will perform as the spec sheet. For most of the phones it differs.
