Motorola is back with another phone, and this time around, it̵
Motorola isn’t ready to give an exact price or release date just yet, but there was a lot to be said about the phone. As the name suggests, the One 5G supports the 5G service. The first model will work with AT&T, and another model will follow to support Verizon’s mmWave 5G.
Of course, Android 10 is running, and Motorola will keep it pretty close to stock. On the side is your fingerprint reader, which doubles as a gesture button. If you’re familiar with the “Edge Touch” capabilities of the Motorola Edge, it’s something close by. For example, you can swipe the button to highlight the notification shadow.
As you’d expect with a midrange phone, you get midrange specs, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of base storage. You can of course expand your storage with a microSD card, which has a pretty hefty 5,000 mAh battery.
Cameras are the real point here, although it’s not obvious at first. The One 5G has the usual cameras such as a 48 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide camera and a 2 MP depth camera for portrait effects. But there is also a fourth camera, a 5 MP macro camera, which has a second ring of light around the camera itself.
When you take a macro shot, the approach to the subject casts a shadow on it. The light ring should (in theory) take care of the shadow problem so you get better macro shots.
There are two pinhole cameras on the front, a 16 MP main lens and a secondary 8 MP ultrawide lens. The display is 6.7-inch Full HD and Motorola has increased it to a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
Even so, it’s only a medium range phone – you lose some features. The One 5G has no wireless charging and no IP rating for water resistance. But you can’t get everything for less than $ 500, even if we think you should charge wirelessly.
