The Moto’s camera-themed lineup has gotten an addition – the Motorola One Macro. Just as its name goes, its unique skill is macro photography. Read on to find out about the One Macro’s key features, full specification, price as well as release date in India and across the world.
Motorola Moto One Macro Features
The Motorola One Macro camera can focus from as close as 2cm and it uses a 2MP sensor with 1.75µm pixels. When framing a macro shot, you should have in mind that when you are standing so close to the subject you will get a natural bokeh (no image processing needed).
For regular shots, the One Macro packs a 13MP main camera which can record 1080p videos at 60fps (and 120fps for slow-mo). There’s a Laser AF system to help with the focus.
Additionally, there is a 2MP depth sensor which is used for portrait shots. While there is no telephoto lens on this model, the Hi-Res Zoom mode stacks multiple frames to improve the quality of digital zoom.
The Motorola One Macro features a 6.2 inch LCD with 720 x 1,520px resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It houses the 8MP selfie camera inside a waterdrop notch.
The new Moto phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset, which comes close to the performance of the Snapdragon 675 which is used in the Motorola One Zoom and Motorola One Action, all thanks to its four Cortex-A73 cores (and four A53) along with Mali-G73 MP3 GPU.
The One Macro comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The internal storage can be expanded further via the hybrid card slot, which means you have a choice between two nano SIMs or a nano SIM + microSD card.
Though it has “One” in its name, it is not an Android One phone. It runs on a tweaked version of Android 9 Pie. There is a promise of an update to Android 10 later this year and 2 years of security update.
The One Macro comes with 4000mAh battery and it is charged over USB-C at up to 10W. There is an inclusion of a 10W charger inside the box too. Motorola claims that the battery can last for up to 48 hours when used moderately. It also has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Motorola One Macro Price and Release Date
The Motorola One Macro will be released in India first, and it will be available exclusively on Flipkart from October 12 for a price of INR9,999 ($140). There is only one memory configuration for now (64GB) and it comes in Space Blue colour.
A global launch will follow after this, bringing the One Macro to Europe, Latin America, and the United States of America on October 24. The exact time frames will be announced for each regions separately.
