After a flurry of last minute leaks, Motorola One Hyper was finally launched. It’s the first Android phone branded with Motorola to come with a pop-up selfie camera module that houses a 32-megapixel sensor. Motorola One Hyper is also the company’s first telephone to pack a 64-megapixel main camera and a full-screen display without a hole-punch or notch. It is powered by the aging octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC and is covered by a nano-coating layer of p2i to keep liquid damage at bay.
Motorola One Hyper Price
For its single version, Motorola’s first 64-megapixel mobile, the Motorola One Hyper, has been priced at $399.99 (around Rs. 29,000) and is already being picked up in the US, Latin America and some European markets. This comes in variations for painting Deep Sea Blue, Dark Amber, and New Orchid. In the coming months, the phone will also arrive in some Middle East markets, but there’s no word if it’s going to make its way to Indian markets or when. We have contacted Motorola for clarification and when we hear back, we will add this response.

Ironically, the latest Motorola phone features only two cameras on the back, while its more compact predecessors had triple rear cameras introduced earlier this year. The main snapper is a sensor with a f/1.9 lens and a pixel size of 0.8 microns. After creating a larger 1.6 micron pixel, it uses the quad pixel technology to capture 16-megapixel photos.
The main camera is accompanied by an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens with an f/2.2 aperture and 118-degrees field of view. Housed in a pop-up camera module is a 32-megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture and 0.8 micron pixel size. It also utilises the quad pixel technology to capture brighter 8-megapixel pixel-binned photos. Camera features include Night Vision, RAW capture, hi-res zoom, and fill-HD 60fps videos capture among others.
Motorola One Hyper offers 128GB of inbuilt storage that can further be expanded via a microSD card (up to 1TB). Connectivity options on the phone include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, A-GPS, LTEPP, SUPL, GLONASS, and Galileo. It packs a 4,000mAh battery that supports 45W Hyper Charge technology. However, the retail package will come equipped with a 15W TurboPower charger, while the 45W charger will be sold separately in some regions.
So, sensors onboard the Motorola One Hyper include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass, fingerprint sensor, gyroscope, proximity sensor, and a SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) sensor. Thus, dimensions of the phone are 161.8 x 76.6 x 8.9mm and it tips the scales at around 200 grams. Further, the phone has a plastic build with a water repellent design, and has a USB Type-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack.
