Motorola One Hyper with 64MP rear camera, 45W charging launched for $399
Even throughout changes made to the company’s lineup and business tactics/strategies, Motorola phones remain a fan favorite for some people. While they’re no longer as affordable as they were in the past, and while software updates aren’t nearly as frequent as they used to be, their relative developer-friendliness, close-to-stock Android software, and brand familiarity have managed to keep the company afloat. They recently came back to the public spotlight with the Motorola Razr 2019, a refresh of a classic Motorola icon which brings foldable displays to a friendlier, more common form factor. And the company is definitely not done yet, as the launch of the Motorola One Hyper demonstrates.
As previously leaked, the Motorola One Hyper, just like previous Motorola One devices, is all about bringing new things to the table–or at least things that are new to Motorola phones. The device features several new features such as a 64MP camera, like devices from Xiaomi and Realme have included, as well as a pop-up front-facing 32MP camera that hides under the display, just like other implementations we’ve seen before, and eliminates the need for a display notch and, thus, allows for a fully bezel-less display. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor with up to 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage–definitely not a lot, but since it’s a mid-range device, we can’t ask for much here.
The phone also has a 3600 mAh battery which, while beefy, is not a lot compared to other devices in the same price range, but Motorola is also including support for 45W charging for ultra-quick top-ups, so you should always have plenty of battery with you.
The Motorola One Hyper is now available starting today for $399 in the United States, where it will be sold exclusively through Motorola’s own online store, as well as in several markets across Europe and Latin America. The phone is available in three colors: Deepsea Blue, Dark Amber, and Fresh Orchid. Are you excited about the Motorola One Hyper? Let us know down in the comments below.
