The curtains have been drawn off from the Motorola One Action and the device comes with some decent specs and also the camera is one of its key features. If you love making use of the camera of your smartphone, then this is a must-buy. Read on as you get to see the Motorola One Action full specification, key features, price and also the release date in the international market.
Motorola One Action Features
Action cameras may be the one species of digital cameras that retained popularity in the age of smartphones. They are characterized by wide-angle lenses and 60fps video recording, geared towards capturing action-packed clips. But the action cams may soon follow their point-and-shoot cousins into the great beyond if phones like this one become popular.
The Motorola One Action gets its name from the unique Action Camera found on its back. It has a 117° ultrawide angle lens and captures video at 1080p/60. Its 16MP sensor uses 4-in-1 pixel binning to improve image quality in low light and features electronic image stabilization.
Interestingly, the sensor is designed in such a way that it records landscape video when the phone is held vertically. This will make mounting the phone easier as, for example, most bike mounts keep the phone vertical.
Note that this camera cannot shoot stills. For photos and regular videos you will have to use the 12MP main camera instead. This one does feature 4K recording (at 30fps). The 5MP depth sensor rounds off the triple camera on the back. Also here (branded with the Motorola logo) is the fingerprint reader.
The Motorola One Action has a 21:9 1080p+ IPS LCDthat measures 6.3” in diagonal. The 12MP selfie camera lives in a punch hole in the top left corner.
Despite its name and adventurous spirit, the phone isn’t particularly rugged – it only has basic water resistance (IPX2 means protection against dripping water when tilted at 15°). The phone isn’t design to withstand impacts either, but you do get a protective cover in the box.
The Motorola One Action runs Android 9.0 Pie and is part of the Android One program. It’s powered by an Exynos 9609 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage, which can be expanded further with a microSD slot. Note that the dual SIM models have a hybrid slot.
The 3500mAh battery is charged over USB-C with the bundled 10W charger. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on top and a loudspeaker (with Dolby Audio) on the bottom. The retail package in select countries will feature a headset.
Motorola One Action Price and Release Date
The Motorola One Action will be released from August 16, 2019 in Europe, Brazil and Mexico at a price of €260. In the following months, it will expand to more European and Latin American countries. The US and Canada will have to wait until early October. The phone is available in two color options – Denim Blue and Pearl White.
