Motorola One Fusion+ launches in India with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G and pop-up selfie camera
Motorola is expanding its portfolio of mid-range smartphones in India with a new entry. The company just launched the Moto One Fusion+. This is, of course, not the first time we hear about Motorola’s latest Moto One series smartphone. The phone was quietly unveiled by Motorola on its website earlier this month, but today the company is officially launching it in the Indian market.

One of the main highlights of the Moto One Fusion+ is its display. It packs a 6.5-inch Total Vision display with full HD+ resolution and HDR10 support. The display has no punch-hole or cutout as it uses a motorized pop-up front camera. The phone is powered by the mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset paired with Adreno 618 GPU, 6GB RAM, and 128GB flash storage.
In the camera department, there’s a 64MP f/1.8 primary camera, 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide camera, 5MP macro lens, and 2MP depth sensor. Meanwhile, the front pop-up selfie camera is a 16MP f/2.2 sensor that can output 4MP shots with increased light sensitivity by combining 4 pixels into 1 superpixel.
The Moto One Fusion+ packs a massive 5,000 mAh battery and supports fast charging via the included 18W TurboCharger. The phone comes running Android 10 out-of-the-box with some useful Moto Experience features sprinkled on top. Other highlights of the device include a dedicated Google Assistant button, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, a 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band WiFi, and a single bottom-firing speaker.
Pricing & Availability
The Moto One Fusion+ comes in two colors — Moonlight White and Twilight Blue —and will go on sale on Flipkart starting June 24th for a retail price of ₹16,999 ($224). The pricing of the device is surprisingly aggressive, pitching it against competitors such as the POCO X2.
Update: Promised update to Android 11 along with security updates for 2 years
There was some confusion on the software present on the Motorola Moto One Fusion+. The presence of the “One” branding was presumed to be an indication of the device’s involvement in the Android One program. Plus, there was no available information on the promised software updates for the device.
We reached out to Motorola India for clarification on these details.
“The Moto One Fusion+ is not part of the Android One program.
For this device, we have an assured upgrade to Android 11 and two years of software security updates. Also apart from the assured updates, these are the minimum and we will continue to work on providing additional updates in the future.”
The statements are self-explanatory. Despite the presence of the “One” branding, the device is not a part of the Android One program. One platform update and two years of security updates are also very good to have, and it sets a good baseline of expectations for this phone. We hope Motorola delivers above and beyond the promise.
