Motorola could barely keep up with the Chinese offerings in terms of mid-range smartphones. Other Chinese brands like Xiaomi offered much more killer deals in the same price range. However, in 2019, Lenovo-owned Motorola seems to be planning to shake things up a little. The foldable Moto Razr smartphone and an unnamed quad-camera smartphone from the company are proof that Motorola is looking forward to taking on the premium segment again. While the Motorola One Vision stands a statement from the company that they are stepping up their game in the mid-range segment as well.
Currently, Motorola is planning to launch the Motorola One Vision and the smartphone has already made its appearance on the Bluetooth certification site, the FCC, and Google’s ARCore supported device list, suggesting at an imminent release of the device. Although we are already aware of most of its specifications, there are still software features that need to be uncovered.
Today we will talk about some new modes in the Motorola camera app that are likely to debut either with Motorola One Vision or come as a software update for the One Vision and Moto G7.
Firstly, Motorola is working on a new mode for its camera app called “Night Vision”. As the name suggests, the mode will help users take better low-light photos. Although there is not much information on how this mode might actually work, it could implement a feature like Samsung‘s Bright Night Scene Optimizer or it could offer a handheld long-exposure experience similar to Google’ Night Sight and Huawei‘s night mode.
Currently, Motorola is developing its Night Vision for the Motorola One Vision and Moto G7 Plus, however, in the future, the company could avail the feature to other Motorola devices through a software update. Motorola is known for updating its camera app every now and then, for instance, the company brought Google Lens and Google Photos integration, Live Filters, AR Stickers, and more to many of their existing devices.
Another feature that Motorola seems to be working on is Portrait Relighting effect. This feature is supposed to add lighting as well as blur effect to portrait photos. Currently, the available feature offers Studio, Color pop, Sunshine, Noir, Side, and Stage lighting effects. Portrait Relighting feature is being developed for the Motorola One Vision and might come with devices such as Moto Z4 Play and Moto Razr.
As far as Motorola One Vision rumors are concerned, an alleged press render of the device leaked online, and separately, some key specifications of the device also popped up.
Motorola One Vision alleged press render reveal a punch-hole display the likes of which has been seen of Samsung Galaxy S10-series. The upcoming Motorola smartphone will reportedly be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9610 SoC and will be available in multiple variants with up to 4GB of RAM.
The alleged Motorola One Vision renders also reveal a dual-rear camera setup and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor with the Motorola logo painted over it. On the front, the phone can be seen sporting a punch-hole display with minimal bezels and a relatively thicker chin. The display will reportedly have a resolution of 2520 x 1080 pixels with an aspect ratio of 21:9, however, the screen size is not known.
