Motorola is set to release its first 5G smartphone in the US. The Motorola One 5G is a mid-range smartphone that will cost under $500, Motorola recently announced. The device will be available soon through AT&T and Verizon.
The Motorola One 5G features a 6.7-inch Full HD+ display at a 90Hz refresh rate. Cameras on the front include a punch-hole duo that consists of a 16-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens. The rear has quad cameras with a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, a 5-megapixel macro, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
It maintains a standard camera profile for a mid-range phone, but the macro lens that Motorola has added makes a difference. The macro lens comes with a ring flash light around it, which shoots clearer macro shots eliminating any shadow cast on the subject, according to Motorola.
The One 5G packs a 5G-optimized Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor. It will come in only one configuration, 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. The storage, however, is expandable via a microSD card. The battery capacity is 5,000mAh.
Coming with stock Android 10, the Motorola One 5G will cost under $500 and will be available through AT&T soon. It will also be available through Verizon early October, but that will be a special mmWave variant as Verizon’s 5G network offers mmWave band only. It’s unclear if the One 5G will still be a sub-$500 phone under Verizon, though.
