Motorola One Hyper: $400 Android 10 phone with a pop-up selfie cam

Motorola One Hyper has a 32-megapixel pop-up selfie camera and big battery for $400

And until pricing for key markets for the Motorola One lineup like India is revealed, I can't offer much comment on how the value stacks up against brands like Redmi and Realme, both of which are offering Snapdragon 700-series phones at seriously competitive prices.

The Motorola One Hyper has been launched with the latest Android 10 OS. This one has a lot of megapixels.

This is the first device with “Hyper Charging” - Motorolas take on 45W wired charging (the fastest by the company yet by a large margin). "There's no carrier pre-loaded apps; it's very clean Android". If you want, you can turn it off and have the mechanism operate silently. It has been paired with an 8MP ultrawide angle sensor for a dual-camera setup.

"The 6.5" 19:9 display is an IPS LCD, and it looks fine to my eyes; nothing special, nothing awful. It was bright, and at 395ppi, it's sharp.

One design touch I think users will appreciate is the light ring around the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. Powered by a Snapdragon 675 processor and 4GB RAM, this thing can definitely handle most routine tasks, but it's probably wise not to expect the same performance in heavy gaming scenarios as you'd get from a Snapdragon 855 flagship nowadays. It does not support wireless charging and it's not technically water-resistant, although it's splash-repellent.

The rest of the specs are nothing special, although it's definitely nice to see both a headphone jack and microSD card slot included. It supports Bluetooth 5, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and NFC.

Android 10: Motorola sucks at updating its phones in the USA, but this phone at least comes with Android 10 to start.

Storing the front-facing camera inside the phone means that you have unobstructed access to the 6.5-inch screen, without a black bar or punch-hole for the camera to live. Motorola used a 3D curved design on the back of the phone, and combined with the matte finish, it looks like a pretty stylish device. The fingerprint sensor, two-thirds of the way up the back of the phone, is pretty well-placed. On the front, you've got a 32MP pop-up selfie camera that allows the display to lack any notch or cutout, similar to what you would find on the OnePlus 7 Pro.

The Hyper doesn't look like it was designed for the USA, and it isn't a core part of Motorola's United States strategy.

That's an intentional decision, according to Motorola's Doug Michau, executive director of North American product operations, and it comes mainly in response to customer feedback around previous One-series devices. Motorola doesn't usually sell its One-line phones in the United States at all, but the company says that past critiques have spurred it to sell the phone direct-to-consumer from its website.

It's only being sold through, not through any retailers or USA carriers. While leaked renders have shown the phone in multiple colors, only the Deep Sea Blue variant is available.

Motorola opted for some more vibrant colors in this version of the Motorola One.
