Motorola One Action, horizontal videos

Motorola has an interesting new concept: a smartphone, called Motorola One Action, designed to compete with a GoPro camera.

This somewhat unlikely hybrid looks

It feels and is definitely a smartphone. But one of its three rear cameras is an ultra-wide 16 megapixel sensor that is designed to take excellent action videos.

In practice

This comes down to several features. First, you can take horizontal videos with a 117-degree field of view, while holding the phone vertically, which is a great idea.

The sensor is also assisted by Motorola's "Enhanced Video Stabilization" technology that should make the video clips smoother.

Finally, the sensor has 2.0 micron Quad Pixel technology that should offer brighter and sharper videos in low light settings.


He was also inspired by recent Sony phones and placed a 21-inch, 6-inch ultra wide screen on the One Action, which makes it more suitable for viewing ultra-wide videos.

The screen has a Full HD resolution and a perforation cutout in the upper left corner for the 12 megapixel selfie camera.

Other specifications

They include a 12-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel depth sensor on the back, an Samsung Exynos 9609 octa-core processor, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage memory (expandable via microSD cards) and a battery of 3,500 mAh The phone comes with Android 9 Pie.
