Full-screen smartphones with pop-up displays are all the rage these days. The concept was first introduced with the Vivo Apex last year, and back then, it looked truly futuristic and out of this world. Nowadays, though, it seems normal to us, with devices from different manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Oppo, Huawei, and even Samsung employing moving cameras as an alternative to screen notches, which themselves surfaced as a solution to the problem of ever-expanding smartphone displays. Motorola is also set to release their own take on a smartphone with a pop-up camera very, very soon, and the Spanish Android website ProAndroid has already gotten their hands on it.
It doesn’t seem like an overly impressive mid-range phone overall. As far as specifications go, we have a Snapdragon 675, which is a decently performing mid-range SoC, together with–at least in this particular unit–4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. It features a 64MP rear camera just like other smartphone offerings from Xiaomi, Realme, and Samsung, and the pop-up camera unit houses a 32MP front-facing camera. Going into the screen, however, the phone has a 6.4-inch 1080p panel with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and, of course, no notch to be seen since the phone employs a pop-up module for the camera. Bezels are sort of big, all things considered, and especially considering the bezels of some of its competitors.
Overall, it is pretty much what we’ve been expecting since our exclusive first look. The device is running Android 10 with no customizations on top, just like we’ve learned to expect from Motorola. Android 10 indicates that this device is probably going to launch next year, also given how we don’t have a marketing name for it yet.
