On 31st August 2020, Motorola announced a new mid-range smartphone with 5G connectivity. Technically, the new Moto One 5G is a rebranded Moto G 5G Plus, which will be available to the US Market. It will have a unique ring flash. Although there are no details regarding its price, the company promises to keep it under $500.
It seems that Motorola is following the Xiaomi and Realme’s rebranding devices formula with the One 5G. It means that the updated version will have the same refresh rate, cameras, chipset, and battery size, just like the G 5G Plus. The only difference is, it has a ring flash.
That aside, it’s a 5G-enabled budget smartphone, which should probably get the job done for the most part. In addition to 5G connectivity, Moto One 5G will feature a 6.7″ FHD+ LCD screen (not OLED) with a 90Hz refresh rate. It will deliver smoother performance when swiping through menus, playing supported games, and scrolling feeds.
The phone will come with a non-detachable 5000 mAh battery that will deliver good endurance during high refresh rate and while using 5G connectivity. The size of the battery is larger than OnePlus Nord and Samsung Galaxy A51 5G. There are no details regading whether it will offer 15W or 20W charging right now.
Talking about camera specs, One 5G has a total of six cameras: Two at the front, four at the back. One of the selfie cameras is a 6MP ultra-wide shooter for wide selfies, and the other is a 16MP f/2.0 camera. At the back, the main camera is a 48MP shooter, a 5MP macro camera, a 2MP depth camera, and an 8MP ultra-wide camera. The only difference between G 5G and One 5G is that the latter has a ring flash around the main camera.
The device will come with Android 10, but unlike Samsung, it will only feature one OS upgrade. There isn’t much to discuss the pricing and availability details, so I’m going to end this blog now.
