How many times have you forgotten to hold your phone in horizontal position when videoing? I guessing it’s more often than you like. While vertical video is accepted with YouTube getting behind it, the truth is, we want our videos to be in landscape orientation. Well, with the new Motorola one action, this first world woe will be over. Not only that, the one action also touts itself as “an action camera” and yes, it is still a smartphone.
Boasting a tri-camera system with an industry-first 117-degree ultra-wide action video camera, Motorola action one lets you record videos “that fit four times more in the frame” with enhanced video stabilization to boot. Plus, its 20µm Quad Pixel technology delivers four times more light sensitivity for sharper, brighter videos in any situation.
And then there’s the 12 MP main camera that touts 1.25µm pixels, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and f1.8 aperture and a 5 MP depth camera for the perfect portrait shots. Rounding up the imaging capabilities is none other than moto AI.
Other notable specifications and features include a 6.3-inch CinemaVision FHD+ display in 21:9 aspect ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass, Exynos 9606 chip with 2.2 GHz octacore processor and Mali G72 MP3 GPU, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB storage, microSD card support, USB Type-C port, built-in FM radio, dual band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0 EDR + BLE, a 3,500 mAh battery with TurboPower support, and the usually suspect of sensors. And oh, rejoice wired headphones users because, the motorola one action still has the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The motorola one action is out in Brazil, Mexico and various Europe countries, starting at €259 (about US$287). It will also be rolling into other countries in Latin America, Europe, as well as Asia Pacific in coming month and for those residing in the U.S. and Canada, you can expect it to drop in October 2019.
