The new Motorola One Vision makes watching media the biggest priority

The Motorola One Vision could probably be the successor to the Motorola One Power that was launched in India past year for Rs 15,999.

Motorola has officially revealed the One Vision, its first smartphone with a punch-hole display.

The One Vision breaks away from the design themes that we've seen from previous "One" smartphones and does away with the centrally-mounted display notch. Most phones today use artificial intelligence to anticipate the needs of users and this one doesn't disappoint.

We've tried out the Motorola One Vision for a while, and below you'll find our first thoughts about the phone ahead of our full review. The idea here is that a lot of video is filmed in the 21:9 aspect ratio, so this is the best for watching film and looking at photos as well as a variety of other tasks such as gaming.

The "Vision" in the phone's name refers in part to this unusual display, but it's also Motorola's way of drawing attention to the dual camera around back.

The pre-order page went live a couple of months ago so we're assuming a lot of people have the new Huawei phone. Upgrading the specs and features is easier as compared to coming up with a new smartphone with a fresher design.

Curiously, all of these AI features - plus the typically clean build of Android One - are powered by an octa-core Samsung Exynos 9609 chipset and 4GB of RAM. Both phones were made available in China as Motorola P30 Play and P30 Power. It comes with 128 GB of storage as the standard configuration but also supports microSD cards up to 512 GB. Motorola claims the One Vision will offer seven hours of battery with 15 minutes of charge. The rear side of the phone is not entirely visible and only the logo of the company can be seen. It includes the Google Assistant, Digital Wellbeing, and the promise of monthly security updates for at least three years.

That means that despite the megapixel count you're only going to be able to take the equivalent of 12MP shots with the phone's rear camera, but it's still a powerful shooter that creates some lovely images in our limited testing so far. Motorola's camera software provides added AI features like shot optimization and a Night Vision mode.

The new phone features a 48MP primary rear camera (Samsung GM-1, f/1.7 aperture, OIS) as well as a 5MP depth sensor. The One Vision uses an Exynos chipset, has a display with 21:9 aspect ratio and runs Android 9 Pie out of the box.
