The newest Motorola One series phone makes a big change compared to the previous models in the series: it ditches the notch.
The Motorola One Hyper is now official and it features a 6.5-inch 2340x1080 edge-to-edge display. There's no notch — though there is a small chin — and so Motorola has decided to place the One Hyper's selfie camera into a pop-up mechanism. That front cam is a 32MP snapper with Quad Pixel tech for improved light sensitivity and a Night Vision mode for better low-light shots.
Around back is a dual camera setup that includes a 64MP main snapper with the same Quad Pixel and Night Vision features as the selfie camera. There's an 8MP ultra wide angle cam with a 118-degree field of view, too, as well as laser autofocus and an LED flash.
The Motorola One Hyper is equipped with a 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 675 processor that's paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. Motorola has also included a microSD card slot in case you need more storage. There's a large 4000mAh battery included in the One Hyper, and the phone supports up to 45W Hyper charging that can get you 12 hours of power in 10 minutes. That 45W charger is sold separately in some markets.
Android 10 is included with the Motorola One Hyper out of the box, and there's a fingerprint reader on the back of the phone for added security. A USB-C port is on the bottom of the phone for charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack is located on the top. All of those features are packed into a body that includes a water repellent design.
Motorola is now taking orders for the One Hyper in the U.S. for $399.99. It's sold as a GSM unlocked device and will support AT&T and T-Mobile. The One Hyper will also begin to roll out today in Latin America and select European countries. It'll arrive in select markets across the Middle East in the coming months.
The One Hyper looks like a solid addition to Motorola's One series. It's got a big, notch-free screen, large battery with support for super-fast charging, and two features that are missing from some flagship phones in the 3.5mm headphone jack and microSD slot. While it's not the most high-end phone around, it looks like a pretty nice option for anyone in the market for a mid-range Android phone.
