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 ashowing 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). 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 .
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, 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 theand . 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 launches Moto C, a low-end smartphone
After launching a low-end smartphone in the summer of 2016, the Moto E3, Motorola announces a new device that stands out for its low cost, the Moto C.
chip The Moto C will ship 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. It will run on Android 7.0 Nougat and will handle 4G. Motorola announces a battery of 2.350 mAh but avoids specifying how many hours it will hold, only to promise that it will be "long-lasting". No official information on the processor either, but according to the information ofA Plus version with a lot of advantages against a small surcharge , the Moto C will be equipped with a MediaTek chip 1.3 GHz four cores. For comparison, the recently released Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 2.3 GHz eight-core processor. The Moto C processor would be quite comparable to that of the Galaxy Note 2, released in the fall of 2012 (a four-core ARM Cortex-A9 1.6 GHz). Still, when we talk about processors, everything is not in the frequency nor the number of hearts, the actual performance of this Moto C remains to be verified.
In the rest of the features, the Moto C will have a front camera of 2 megapixels with a flash (for comparison, this camera has a resolution of 7 megapixels at the iPhone 7 and 8 megapixels at the Samsung Galaxy S8). At the front, this phone will have a 5 megapixel camera (against 12 megapixels in high-end smartphones from Apple and Samsung).
Moto C will also exist in Plus version: it will also allow you to juggle two SIM cards, but the official announcement does not say if we can use both simultaneously. This Plus version will also ship a higher-performance battery (4.000mAh), on which the phone should run for 30 hours (on the profile of an average user, including both the day before and use of the device, says Motorola ). The internal storage space can be extended indefinitely thanks to an SD card. Even applications can be saved there.
Moto C and Moto C Plus will be available in France in June, at the respective recommended prices of 119.99 euros and 129.99 euros.0 © Provided by Clubic

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.
