The Motorola One Vision is official, and it’s clear that the company has been keeping a close eye on industry trends. From the 48MP rear camera to the punch-hole selfie snapper, there’s no denying that the phone brings a few pertinent features to the table.

Probably the biggest surprise here is the unannounced Samsung Exynos 9609 chipset instead of a Snapdragon SoC. Little is known regarding this Exynos SoC, save for its 2.2Ghz clock speed, octa-core design (core details weren’t disclosed), and Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. The latter GPU appeared in the Helio P60 and Helio P70 processors. In other words, it looks like a squarely mid-range processor rather than straddling the line between the flagship and mid-range. Update: Motorola has come back to us, confirming that the chipset is a variant of the Exynos 9610. That processor offers four Cortex-A73 cores and four power-sipping Cortex-A53 cores.
Other details worth knowing in this respect include 4GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. This is pretty respectable for a mid-ranger, but those wanting more RAM are out of luck as this is the only configuration.
The 48MP f/1.7 main camera is one of the key Motorola One Vision specs, using Samsung’s GM-1 sensor. The phone supports pixel-binning via this sensor, delivering brighter shots in low-light situations (at the expense of resolution). The primary camera is accompanied by a 5MP secondary shooter to enable depth effects.
Switch to the front and you’ll find a 25MP selfie camera in a punch-hole setup. Much like the 48MP camera, the 25MP camera can use pixel-binning tech to deliver lower resolution but brighter shots when the sun goes down.
One noteworthy compromise is that the Motorola One Vision uses LCD technology instead of OLED tech for its 6.3-inch Full HD+ screen. OLED tech can help reduce battery consumption and delivers deeper blacks compared to LCD tech, but your mileage may vary. In any event, the Motorola device also features a trendy punch-hole design.
Hoping for super-long battery life? The Motorola phone doesn’t seem to impress in terms of sheer capacity, offering a 3,500mAh pack. The manufacturer is however promising 15 watt fast charging, claiming it’ll give you seven hours of use after 15 minutes of charging.
