Motorola is getting ready to unveil its first-ever phone with a pop-up camera. The phone boasts a 32MP cam installed in a pop-up module with a curious arrangement – the camera is lined up with the dual camera hump on the back.
That hump is home to another high-resolution sensor – the main camera has 64MP resolution. That’s an upgrade over the 48MP sensor found in the Motorola One Zoom and Vision.
There’s no telephoto or even ultra wide camera here, though, just an 8MP depth sensor. The main camera tops out at 4K/30 video recording and also offers 120fps slow-mo at 1080p or 240fps at 720p. There are dedicated Night and Portrait modes.
This phone is closer to the Vision than it is to the Zoom. It has a 6.39” screen, an IPS LCD with 1080p+ resolution. This means no Always On Display and no in-display fingerprint reader – the reader is on the back.
The interesting part is that the FP reader is surrounded by an LED-lit ring. It can be configured to light up for notifications and while charging or just when the phone is in use.
While we don’t know its name, this is a Motorola One phone, meaning it runs nearly stock Android – version 10 in this case. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 675 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage.
You can expand that with a microSD card, the card tray on the phone is a hybrid that can also house two nanoSIM cards. The phone also boasts a USB-C port (no word on fast charging support, but 15W is most likely), there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack and an FM radio receiver.
While this phone is yet to be unveiled, someone got their hands on a unit and wrote up a short hands-on review. If you can read Spanish (or are willing to use Google Translate), you can follow the Source link below.

Since I rarely take selfies, I rather like this design. Having a headphone jack and SD card slot makes this design even more attractive. I'll be watching to see the final specs.
