Motorola just announced its newest phone, the Motorola One Zoom. At $450, this phone packs a quad camera system, a big battery, large 1080p display with teardrop notch, three unique colors, and immediate availability. Seriously, you can buy this phone right now in the US.
For specs, you are looking at a Snapdragon 675 processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, 4000mAh battery with 15W or 25W charging, 6.4″ OLED FHD display, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port, NFC (!), Bluetooth 5.0, in-display fingerprint reader, and Android 9 Pie.
The quad camera I mentioned is made up of a 48MP camera (f/1.7, OIS) that uses quad pixel technology to output 12MP shots, a 16MP wide angle lens, 8MP telephoto lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. The front camera shoots at 25MP, but can pixel bin down to 6.25MP for low light shots.
What’s the big sell here? The quad camera could be useful for many, thanks to its flexibility. The “elegant 3D satin glass” supposedly reduces smudges and fingerprints, plus the price isn’t terrible. At $450, we’re in Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL territory with a similar set of specs.
If interested, you can buy the Motorola One Zoom today from Motorola’s store and use it as a GSM phone on either AT&T or T-Mobile. Colors available are Electric Gray, Cosmic Purple, and Brushed Bronze.
