The new Motorola One Zoom is the best phone in Moto’s current lineup. It has a 6.4” OLED display with 1080p+ resolution and under display fingerprint and it is powered by a Snapdragon 675 chipset, just like the Moto Z4. As you can tell from the name, however, the camera got an upgrade – or three.
The main shooter is still based on a 48MP sensor (0.8µm) with a bright f/1.7 lens and optical image stabilization (OIS). The selfie camera is the same as well, a 25MP shooter with 0.9µm pixels. Both it and the rear cam feature Quad Pixel technology for improved low-light performance.
But while the Z4 had just those two cameras, the Zoom adds an 8MP telephoto cam with 3x optical zoom and OIS. There’s also a 16MP ultra wide-angle (117°) camera and a 5MP depth sensor.
The chassis of the Motorola One Zoom is built out of polished 6000-series aluminum. The OLED screen is protected by 2.5D chemically-strengthened glass (Panda King), the back gets Gorilla Glass 3.
Moto used P2i nano-coating to make the phone splash-proof. It’s powered by a 4,000mAh battery, which supports 15W TurboPower fast charging through the USB-C port. You’ll be glad to hear that there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack (there’s an FM radio receiver to boot).
The One Zoom comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage. It’s a dual-SIM phone with a three-card slot – two SIMs and a microSD.
It will be available starting today at a price of €400. You can check out our hands-on review for a closer look at the phone, complete with many camera samples.
Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL uses lower chipset than this Motorola, yet no one complain. Fanboyism much?
Since Moto only promises 2 major upgtades this will only last about a year, receiving android 10 and 11.
