Motorola One smiles for the camera with glass back & dual cameras

Motorola is planning the launch of a new series of smartphones and no, it isn’t going to be any series like the C, E, G, X or Z. Instead, it’s a whole new series under the name Motorola One. There is no ‘Moto’ branding is the name which shows that Motorola wants to move from that traditional ‘Moto’ branding to the classic ‘Motorola.’ We already know that at least two new phones are launching soon under this series – Motorola One and the Motorola One Power.

In fact, the hands-on images of the Motorola One Power surfaced a couple of weeks back that revealed the design from all the sides. Today, it’s time for the Motorola One to pose for the camera. The live images of the phone have shown up today, revealing that glass back and dual camera setup.

A user on Google Plus shared the images, and there is no ‘Android One’ branding on the rear like we saw on the official press renders which leaked yesterday. This is probably because this is a unit for China and we know companies don’t launch Android One branded (or phones with stock Android) phones in China for some reasons. Talking about rest of the design, there is a glass back which is not new for Motorola devices now as we saw it last year with the Moto X4 and this year with the G6 series phones. Good to see Motorola using premium materials for its mid-range phones also.

The fingerprint scanner is also placed on the rear, underneath the Batwing logo. The dual camera setup on the rear looks pretty odd. Unlike the Motorola One Power that has a single camera module for dual cameras, the lenses on Motorola One are placed separately and between them is the LED flash. The images don’t reveal the front, but we already know that it has a display notch.

The specifications aren’t known yet so stay tuned for that.
