Motorola Moto One Hyper: A Pop-up camera phone
Motorola has officially announced the Moto One Hyper with the official Pop-up camera. Blue, Dark Amber, and Fresh Orchid colors are revealed for its users. Now, it has been announced in the USA and Motorola.com. You will get only a single variant at the price of $399.99(₹28,600). Some Europian countries will also get this phone but countries are not confirmed.
It is a dual-Sim phone, which also supports 4G VoLTE. There is no dedicated memory card slot, so you will have to compromise with the second Sim slot. 3.5mm jack also comes to use the earphones. You will get a fingerprint sensor on the rear side and they could have been used an under-display fingerprint instead of this one.
You also get the USB Type-C port, which is good at this time. It has a battery size of 4,000 mAh and it supports 45W quick-charging. Only 10 minutes charging can give it a life of 12 hours according to the company. Yes, it supports 45W quick-charging but it comes with a 15W quick-charger inside the box. At this pricing, quick-charging is good but only a 15W quick-charger looks disappointing.

Motorola Moto One Hyper Full specifications and Features
It is a full-view display and it comes with a 6.5 inches FHD+ display. You get a resolution of 1080×2340 Pixels, which is decent for the pricing. The aspect ratio is 19.5:9, which gives you a longer display instead of a wide display. It has only an IPS LCD display, which is not good for the pricing. There is no Corning Gorilla Glass protection, which is again a disappointment.
It runs on the Android 10 and Android One support, you will get Android 11 and 12 also. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 Octa-core processor comes in this phone with a max clock speed of 2 GHz. RAM is only 4 GB and internal storage is 128 GB, which is expandable up to 1 TB. I have already told you that, there is no dedicated memory card slot option.
On the rear side, you get a dual-camera setup on the rear side. You get a Samsung 64 MP main wide-sensor with f/1.8 aperture. This sensor will capture a 16 MP shot with quad-pixel binning technology. The 8 MP is the ultra-wide sensor. This can record 4K videos at 30 FPS. On the front side, you get a 32 MP sensor, which will deliver you 8 MP shots with pixel binning. This can record 1080P videos with the front sensor.

Should you buy this Pop-up camera phone at this pricing?
You are getting a full-view display and it is good for the pricing. The display resolution is also good but there is no Corning Gorilla Glass protection. IPS LCD display is also not good and you can easily get Super-AMOLED displays. I am not impressed with its display and Motorola should implement Super-AMOLED at this pricing.
Android 10 is good and Android One support is also decent. The Snapdragon 675 is a major disappointment and I can’t recommend this SoC at this pricing to you. RAM is also not good but internal storage is Okay.
The cameras are also not decent, I mean this is the first 64 MP sensor in a Motorola phone but it is not good. There is not any Optical or Macro sensor and I do not agree with this camera setup. The front camera is decent but the phone is not.
I am giving the kick to this one and you should ignore this phone at this pricing. If someone is reading this article from Motorola, then Moto should learn the pricing at this time’s market. You can consider Samsung Galaxy A70s and Asus 6z.
