Following the growing trend of macro photography, Motorola has today hopped on to the bandwagon and announced an all-new smartphone with macro photography capabilities. Called the One Macro, the phone is the latest budget offering from the company and an addition to its popular One-series lineup.
Motorola One Macro: Display
The One Macro flaunts a 6.2-inch HD+ Max Vision display with a 19:9 aspect ratio, 1520×720 pixels screen resolution, and 82% screen-to-body ratio. It has a notch upfront on the top, which houses the front-facing camera.
Motorola One Macro: Performance
At its core, the One Macro comes with a 12nm Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P70 processor Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expandable up to 512GB with microSD card). It has a 4000mAh battery with 10W charging, which, according to the company, can last up to 2 days with casual usage. Furthermore, the phone also includes a 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio, USB Type-C, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
On the software front, despite its One-series tag, the phone does not come with Android One, and rather runs a tweaked version of Android 9.0 Pie. However, the company is said to offer an Android 10 update in the coming months, in addition to 2 years of security patches.
Motorola One Macro: Camera
Talking about cameras, which is the USP of the device, the One Macro sports a triple camera setup on the rear, which includes a 13MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture, 1.12μm pixel size, Laser AF, PDAF, a 2MP secondary depth sensor for portrait shots, and a 2MP macro sensor with f/2.2 aperture and 1.75μm pixel size for macro photography. Towards its front, it has an 8MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture and 1.12μm pixel size for selfies.
Motorola One Macro: Pricing and Availability
The Motorola One Macro comes in only one color option – Space Blue, and one configuration – 4GB+64GB, priced at Rs 9,999. It will go on sale in India starting October 12 on Flipkart. As a launch offer, Jio users will get Rs 2,200 cashback (in the form of vouchers) and 125GB of additional data benefits.
