Motorola unveiled its second phone with a pop-up selfie camera – meet the Moto One Fusion+. This helps avoid the punch hole, which is prevalent in recent One models, even the flagship Edge+ has one.
This leaves the 6.5” Total Vision display unblemished. It’s an IPS LCD with 1080p+ resolution and HDR10 support.
As for the selfie camera, it packs a 16MP sensor and raises up only when it’s needed (there’s a fingerprint reader on the back that can be used to unlock the phone). The Moto One Hyper, is quite similar to this device, but it does pack a 32MP pop-up selfie cam.
On the back the main camera is based on a 64MP sensor, just like the Hyper. It has an f/1.8 aperture and a Quad Bayer design for better low light performance. It’s joined by an 8 MP ultrawide-angle camera (118°), a 5MP dedicated macro cam and a 2MP depth sensor for portraits.
The Motorola One Fusion+ is powered by the Snapdragon 730, an 8 nm chipset that promises CPU and GPU performance upgrades over the Snapdragon 675 (11 nm) used in the Hyper. It’s hooked up to 6GB of RAM and 128 GB storage, which can be expanded by microSD cards up to 1 TB.
You’ll have to settle for using only one SIM, however, as the phone has a hybrid card slot. The good news is that it also has a 3.5mm headphone jack and an FM radio receiver on board, how old school. There’s no NFC, though.
The other wired connector is the USB-C port, which supports 15W fast charging for the 5,000 mAh battery. For comparison, the Hyper supports 27 W charging in Europe and 45W in the US, but its battery is smaller (4,000mAh).
The Motorola One Fusion+ will launch in Europe later this month and it will cost €300 (there’s no word on a US launch). It will be available in two colors, Moonlight White and Twilight Blue.
