The Motorola One Pro has popped up in a few leaks, and now we're getting a few more details. It sounds like this phone may actually launch as the Motorola One Zoom According to WinFuture, the Motorola One Zoom will have a 48MP main sensor. Similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro, it will combine four

Motorola ' s upcoming Android One phone will include dual OIS as well. In addition to the 48MP main camera, the WinFuture.de speculates that the smartphone's zoom lens may be capable of providing up to 5 x The Motorola One Zoom will reportedly debut at the IFA tradeshow in Berlin next month.

It looks like you won't have to spend $1,100 to get a phone with serious camera capabilities. Based on newly uploaded renders and a recent report from WinFuture's Roland Quandt, Motorola plans to release the Moto One Zoom, a smartphone with four cameras and a modest price tag.

According to Quandt, the phone features a primary 48-megapixel sensor. The camera uses a pixel-binning technique to combine four sensor pixels into a single pixel, which increases the light-gathering capabilities of each 'individual' pixel. The idea here is that the One Zoom will deliver the best of both high-resolution and low-resolution sensors by adapting to the amount of available light. At least that's the theory. The OnePlus 7 Pro uses the same technique, but delivers mostly mediocre shots.

Moto’s 5G Mod is now compatible with the two-year-old Z2 Force

Moto’s 5G Mod is now compatible with the two-year-old Z2 Force Back when Motorola announced the Moto Z in 2016, one way the company tried to sell consumers on Moto Mods was to promise that they would extend the life of the phone. In a way, Motorola is delivering on that promise with a new update to its 5G Moto Mod. Starting this week, Moto Z2 Force owners with Verizon (Engadget's parent company) can use the accessory to add 5G connectivity to the two-year-old phone. With the update, the accessory is now compatible with three different devices: the aforementioned Moto Z2 Force, as well as 2018's Moto Z3 and the relatively new Z4. Motorola is also updating the 5G Moto Mod to enhance its ability to function as a backup battery.

The Motorola One Zoom has surfaced yet again, this time showing a trio of color options. This phone will feature Amazon content, but the same hardware will also be available as the Motorola One Pro, an Android One phone . It will offer 3x optical (81mm) and 5 x hybrid zoom . There will also be a 13mm ultra This is with the Amazon content, so the One Pro may actually be a tad more expensive.

Motorola ’ s first quadruple-camera smartphone was originally thought to be the One Pro, but new information courtesy of WinFuture suggests it’ll Motorola has given it this name because of the rear camera setup, which has coincidentally just been detailed. Four rear cameras and 5 x hybrid zoom

Complimenting the main sensor is a telephoto lens that will provide 2 to 3x optical zoom. With the help of software, it will be able to do 5x hybrid zoom. There's also a wide-angle lens with a 117-degree field of view and a depth sensor, giving the phone an effective 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 13 to 81mm.

Despite what its name suggests, Quandt notes Motorola is unlikely to market the One Zoom as an Android One device. The renders of the One Zoom appear to corroborate this fact. If you compare the One Zoom with the One Action, the latter has "Android One" printed on its back. The back of the One Zoom, meanwhile, says "Motorola One." Still, the phone is expected to cost just €429 (around $476). We'll have to see how the Moto One Zoom's cameras perform in person. On paper, however, it looks like they'll deliver a camera experience that compares favorably to much more expensive phones like the Note 10+.

While there's no word yet on whether Motorola will release the One Zoom in the US, the company is likely to share more once IFA Berlin starts on September 6th.

Motorola’s Moto G8 Plus leaks with triple rear cameras and a 4,000mAh battery .
It’s reportedly set to be unveiled at the end of OctoberThe phone’s three rear cameras will reportedly consist of a 48-megapixel main camera, a 16-megapixel 117-degree wide angle camera, and a third 5-megapixel depth sensor alongside a laser autofocus system. That’s pretty much the same as what we saw on the Motorola One Zoom when it was announced last month, minus that phone’s titular telephoto lens. It’s a decent upgrade over the basic dual camera found on last year’s Moto G7 Plus.
