Motorola flips for its futuristic foldable phone

  Motorola flips for its futuristic foldable phone NEW YORK (AP) — Motorola is bracing for the future by returning to the past. The company is adapting its historical flip-phone design for a smartphone with a foldable screen. Samsung, Huawei and others have phones that fold like a book and offer a double-sized display when unfolded. Motorola’s new Razr phone, on the other hand, will be smaller than a regular smartphone until unfolded to its full 6.2 inch size. The idea is to make the phone more compact for carrying and storing when folded and not in use. © Provided by The Associated Press This undated product image provided by Motorola by Motorola’s new Razr phone.

It looks as though Motorola might be the latest to jump on the latter bandwagon with its upcoming One Hyper smartphone. This looks to be yet another What's interesting, however, is despite the fact that the One Hyper doesn't have a cutout or notch to contend with, there are still relatively large bezels at

Motorola has produced a strong all-rounder, but it might struggle to shine against some outstanding opposition. But perhaps we're being a little churlish here. If you want an affordable phone that's going to get Google's latest OS very shortly, then the Motorola One is vying with the Xiaomi Mi A2 for pole

We've previously seen a couple of leaks showing an unnamed Motorola handset with a pop-up camera, and now that phone might have a name: the Motorola One Hyper.

That's according to Mishaal Rahman (the editor-in-chief of XDA Developers). He claims that the One Hyper is "likely" the handset that has previously leaked, and adds that it will have a Snapdragon 675 chipset and Android 10.

Those specs aren't surprising – we'd expect many upcoming phones to ship with Android 10, and that chipset is the same as you’ll find in the Motorola One Zoom, marking this out as similarly mid-range. What is surprising though is the name.

  Motorola One Hyper with a pop-up camera is launching on December 3 Motorola One Hyper is the first phone from the company to feature a pop-up camera.The Motorola One range has followed the norm of naming the phone after a distinct camera feature, as we have seen with the One Vision and One Action. However, with the One Hyper, we don't have any information about why it's called "Hyper".

Previous models in the Motorola One range have had names drawn from their camera features, such as the Motorola One Action and Motorola One Vision. But it's not clear what Hyper could be referring to.

It may still be a camera feature of some kind – but all we know about that is that it seemingly has a pop-up selfie camera and a triple-lens rear snapper, and we can’t see what’s 'hyper' about that. If not the camera though it's likely still a reference to some aspect of the phone, unless this is a complete change in naming strategy for the range, which seems unlikely.

For now it remains a mystery, but it likely won't do for long, as Motorola has been releasing models in its One range at a rapid pace, so we doubt we’ll be waiting too much longer for the Motorola One Hyper – or whatever it ends up being called – to emerge.

Motorola is full of surprises for the end-of-year season. Hot on the heels of the launch of the new Razr, its first ever foldable-screen smartphone, the brand, which is now owned by Chinese technology giant Lenovo, has presented the One Hyper, a particularly ambitious mid-range device. The new phone offers very impressive photo features, with a dual camera setup that comprises a 64-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle one. This allows for high-definition photos that can be cropped or reframed to highlight certain details.
