In the Android world, ultra-wide cameras are becoming more common, and the recent phone from Motorola takes complete benefit of that. The Motorola One Action has just been officially announced as the first smartphone with an integrated camera for action.
A triple-camera array and mid-range specs are packing the new Motorola One Action. There is a Samsung Exynos 9609 processor under the hood, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB UFS storage, 3,500 mAh battery, and a headphone jack as well. It’s also an Android One phone with Pie, Digital Wellbeing instruments from Google, and promise of timely updates and patches for safety. Also included are some of Motorola’s software tricks with Moto Display, Moto Actions, and One Button Nav gestures from the company.
Of course, the Motorola One Action’s primary focus is its camera. There is a standard 12MP camera, 5MP camera depth, and an ultra-wide-angle lens with a field-of-view of 117º.
In order to stabilize that camera, Motorola uses hardware and software to behave like a GoPro. More interestingly, when held vertically, the One Action records video, but when played back on the FHD+ 21:9 screen, the video itself is horizontal. This display also uses the design of a hole-punch to maximize screen space.
Starting today in Brazil, Mexico and some countries in Europe, the Motorola One Action will be available for € 259. The company said it will be accessible in areas of Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific over the “coming months.” The phone will arrive for unlocked sale in the U.S. and Canada in October.
