Motorola One Hyper launched with a pop up camera


New Motorola phone launched again. It seems Motorola has awoken, the new smartphone is dubbed the Motorola One Hyper and it is the first ever smartphone from the company to arrive with a pop up selfie camera. It boasts of 45W super fast charging and it’s body is made of plastic but at first glance, you will mistake it for glass. The presence of the pop up camera creates room for the screen giving you a massive viewing experience. It was launched in Deep Sea Blue color but there might be other color options later.

The Motorola One Hyper is priced at $399 and if you are in the US and order the smartphone from Motorola’s online shop. You get a free 32GB Motorola G6 or G6 Play. When ordering for the One Hyper, add the G6 together in the cart while you pay for the One Hyper and the G6 at zero cost. Why Motorola did this is quite unknown. Maybe a Christmas present, but i know it’s going to be limited.

What is keeping the light on is a 4,000mAh Li-Po battery which supports fast charging upto up to 45W. Sadly, you don’t get the 45W charger out of the box, you only get 15W TurboCharger. Motorola says you have to purchase the 45W charger separately, however, if you have a USB PD 3.0 charger, that should work according to Motorola. The phone can last up to 38hours in moderate use.
