Motorola has been out of the limelight for quite sometime now not because of organisational disputes (like last time), rather it has been working on bringing something unique to the Indian market. Something like the Motorola One Vision.

As the name suggests, Motorola is betting big on the One Vision’s optics but this smartphone also brings to the table more than decent hardware. But, does that really justify a price tag of Rs 19,999?

Here’s a quick look at the new Motorola One Vision.

Design & Display

In a world where smartphone makers are looking to offer the “big screen experience”, the One Vision take this a notch up by offering what the company is calling “the world’s first 21:9 screen ratio smartphone”.

There is a lot of content out there that’s adopting this resolution and the One Vision does have a lead in that race. It sports an FHD+ IPS display which is good to look at and a good companion for binge watching.

It sports a very compact form factor and is apt for one hand use. Sports a glossy back (which feels like plastic) and subtle metallic embellishments running around the corner.

Motorola has launched the phone in a bronze variant which instantly catches the eye. Certainly a colour I haven’t seen on a phone.

Hardware & Storage

Powering the One Vision is Samsung’s Exynos 9609 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. I know these hardware specs don’t really ring the excitement bell but Motorola feels it has made the right move by choosing an Exynos over a Qualcomm. We’ll put that to the test in our review later.

It comes with 128GB of internal memory with an option to expand. It also offers NFC and a fingerprint reader at the back. Good thing it has face unlock.

Where you really get your money’s worth is the clean interface and the promise of pure Android that comes with the phone. Motorola promises to offer software updates for the next three OS versions with the One Vision and that’s something worth considering.

It dual SIM device comes with a headphone jack with Dolby Audio output.

Camera

Motorola is betting big on the One Vision Camera and it certainly seems to be a promising addition to this setup.

It comes with a 48+5-megapixel rear camera which offers OIS (optical image stabilisation).

The front sports a 25-megapixel Quad Pixel camera which offers a field of view up to 70 degrees. So, no wide selfies.

We will reserve our judgement of how good or bad the camera is for our full review. But, I’d like to know, what do you think about this Motorola One Vision camera?

Battery

The One Vision comes with a 3,500mAh battery inside which supports Motorola’s Turbo Charge technology so you can expect a quick boost of battery juice when you’re in a hurry and running low.

We’ll see how much we can squeeze out of this battery in our full review later.

Initial Verdict

Motorola has done a decent job here with the Motorola One Vision. It’s got a good design and the bronze colour really makes the phone stand out.

The 4GB of RAM and an Exynos chipset are things that work against the Motorola one vision because many customers out there consider numbers more than the actual performance of the device and that’s where the One Vision has a lot of ground to cover.

At Rs 19,999, the Motorola One Vision comes in direct competition with phones like the Poco F1, Nokia 7.1 and even the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro.
