Motorola One Fusion+ is a mid-range Android smartphone with a 16MP pop-up camera
There is a lot to love about Motorola smartphones. Their software builds are pretty clean if not outright stock Android (on Android One models), pack decent hardware for the price, and sometimes even push the envelope—just look at the Motorola Edge devices with their curved “waterfall” displays. What really carries Motorola, though, is the brand’s selection of budget and mid-range smartphones. Now, the Lenovo-owned brand is launching yet another mid-range smartphone: the Motorola One Fusion+. Although Motorola published a product page for this device, they have not made a formal announcement as the device is not actually available for purchase yet.
Perhaps the most interesting bit about the Motorola One Fusion+ is the display. It is a 6.5″ IPS TFT LCD panel at 2340×1080 resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and 60Hz refresh rate. There’s no display notch or hole-punch cutout, though, as the 16MP front camera is housed in a pop-up component. Pop-up cameras are not a new technology and are also not even new for Motorola—the company previously launched the Motorola One Hyper with a pop-up camera at the end of last year—but they’ve recently fallen out of favor among smartphone manufacturers. Thus, it’s nice to see its use in this device as it allows users to have a truly “full-screen” experience.
Specification-wise, the Motorola One Fusion+ seems like a decent mid-range smartphone. It has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage (expandable via a microSD card slot), and runs Android 10 out-of-the-box (given Motorola’s update track record, don’t expect a lot of software updates, though). The One Fusion+ also has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as well as a quad rear camera setup with a 64MP sensor leading the pack alongside an 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor, 5MP macro sensor, and 2MP depth sensor. Other noteworthy specifications include a 5,000mAh battery (with support for 15W charging) which should be able to provide plenty of juice throughout your day and even more, a single loudspeaker, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a dedicated Google Assistant button, and 2 microphones.
The Motorola One Fusion+ has dimensions of 162.9 x 76.9 x 9.6mm and weighs 210g. Its body is plastic and comes in “Moonlight White” and “Twilight Blue” colors. It is not available for purchase at the moment, but it should become available very soon. GSMArena reports that the phone will be available in Europe later this month for €300.
