Moto Mods aren’t dead yet, if this Moto Z4 leak is to be believed The 2019 flagship might actually have some gusto

With the Motorola One Vision , the manufacturer has installed a display in Sony' s new cinema format - but interrupts the display with a punch hole camera . Unlike Sony, however, Motorola puts the front camera behind a hole in the display, so there' s still an interruption in the screen .

Motorola's One Vision packs a cinematic screen and a clever camera

We're not even halfway through 2019, but Motorola already has a handful of notable hardware launches under its belt. For its next trick, the Lenovo-owned brand is trotting out a fascinating, inexpensive smartphone — the Motorola One Vision — for markets around the world. Normally, we wouldn't fuss much about a mid-range Motorola phone, let alone one we can't buy, but the One Vision is so unusually ambitious that we can't help but pay attention.

Haven't heard of the Motorola One series before? We can't blame you — to date, none of those devices have ever landed in the US, and the One Vision won't either. (For now, Motorola says it's satisfied with the spread of smartphones it sells in North America.) This is actually kind of a shame, because Motorola's One devices tend to focus on new features, flourishes and design choices in a way that make them very different from the brand's more mainstream phones.

That's why the One Vision is the only phone in Motorola's line-up with a 6.3-inch, 21:9 CinemaVision display. (Long story short, the screen is taller and narrower than most to better accommodate cinematic videos.) It's also the only Motorola phone to ditch the now-traditional screen notch in favor of a hole-punch that lets a 25-megapixel front-facing camera peer through the display.

The "Vision" in the phone's name refers in part to this unusual display, but it's also Motorola's way of drawing attention to the dual camera around back. The star of the show here is a 48-megapixel Samsung sensor (as opposed to the Sony IMX586 we've seen in other phones recently), which you'll probably never use to shoot at full resolution.

Samsung's Galaxy A70 has a huge display and 32-megapixel selfie camera Samsung has launched its biggest A-series phone ever, and it has a pretty impressive camera setup, too. The Galaxy A70 packs a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED 20:9 1,080 x 2,400 display with an "Infinity-U" notch. That houses the 32-megapixel, f/2.0 selfie camera that beats the main camera on many other phones. On the back is a 32-megapixel F1.7 main camera (trumping the 24-megapixel main camera on the last model), an ultra-wide-angle camera and a depth sensor. With a large 4,500 mAh battery, the Galaxy A70 supports 25W fast charging, making it the first Galaxy phone to do that (the Galaxy S10 5G will also support 25W charging when it arrives in April).

Massive Motorola One Vision render leak leaves nothing to the imagination. It looks like your typical phone on the outside – with a familiar glass-and-metal construction and a screen stretching from edge to edge – but on the inside, it packs some sci-fi-level stuff.

Earlier in March, the Motorola One Vision , also known as the Motorola P40 in Chinese markets, was spotted on Geekbench with Up until that point that' s all the information we had about the rumoured device but today we can bring you an exclusive render of the now official Motorola One Vision

Motorola is using what it calls "QuadPixel" technology here, which is marketing jargon for a process better known as pixel binning — for the unaware, that means the One Vision treats clusters of four pixels on the sensor as a single, bigger pixel for improved clarity and low-light performance. Sure, the resulting photo is only 12-megapixels, but it should look a lot better than those 48-megapixel raw files. There's also a secondary 5-megapixel camera around back, but that's purely for capturing depth data for use in making bokeh-filled portraits.

We've seen Motorola invest more significantly in artificial intelligence over the past two years, so it isn't a surprise to see the company talk up new smart features for that rear camera. Some are straightforward enough; the AI shot optimization feature looks at what's in front of the camera and suggests that you use Portrait mode if it sees a face, or the new Nightvision mode when it's dark out. Others, like AI shot composition, are a little more nuanced. Once this feature is enabled, the phone can look at the photo you just took; if it "sees" that the image is slightly skewed, it'll crop and level the image to look a little tidier. (Don't worry, the phone will never overwrite your original photo.)

Lenovo’s design for a foldable smartphone is one of the more unique we’ve seen so far

Lenovo’s design for a foldable smartphone is one of the more unique we’ve seen so far Foldable form factors are all the rage right now among smartphone manufacturers, with official introductions of such devices having already been seen from the likes of Samsung and Huawei, to cite just two examples. However, plenty of other manufacturers likewise have foldable handset designs of their own under consideration — with such designs having leaked from companies like Xiaomi and Oppo. And now it seems Lenovo is working on a design of its own, separate from the forthcoming Motorola RAZR expected this summer from Lenovo-owned subsidiary Motorola.

Vision was an android who possessed a synthetic vibranium body created by Ultron and Helen Cho, along with the powerful space gem known as the Mind Stone. Originally conceived as the perfect form for Ultron, the body was stolen by the Avengers

The Motorola CLIQ 2 is the follow-up to the original CLIQ, but the specs sheet has grown considerably since then. The screen is 3.7" big with Other highlights of the Motorola CLIQ 2 include Motorola ' s MOTOBLUR UI, which is very capable in the SNS department, a 5MP autofocus camera with

Curiously, all of these AI features — plus the typically clean build of Android One — are powered by an octa-core Samsung Exynos 9609 chipset and 4GB of RAM. (Based on Motorola and Lenovo's choice of components here, the One Vision seems to have more in common with mid-range Samsung phones than Motorola's other devices.) The rest of the spec sheet is pretty standard: the One Vision is only available with 128GB of storage (though it takes microSD cards as large as 512GB) and packs a 3,500mAh battery into some handsome bronze and sapphire bodies.

If you can feel yourself falling prey to the One Vision's oddball charms, you can pick one up as early as today — assuming you live in Brazil, that is. Over the coming weeks, the phone will continue its world tour with launches in Mexico and Europe — with any luck, Motorola will decide to sell a few of these around here, too.
