Despite catering to the lower end of the smartphone market, the Motorola One View marks a number of firsts for the company. This display fits in FHD resolution - in this case 1080 x 2520 pixels across its face. For selfies, there is a 25MP in-screen camera with f/2.0 aperture. It only works on the rear camera, but it will help deliver capable photos when the sun has gone down. As its name implies, this smartphone is running Google's pared down Android One operating system. Rear side it has a dual rear camera sensor in a vertical position along with dual LED flash, fingerprint sensor behind the Motorola logo and a gradient finish back panel.

On the software front, the phone is running stock Android Pie and is part of the Android One program, promising two major OS updates and three years of security update support. The popular, recently released Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL smartphones (starting at $399) feature the Snapdragon 670, which is negligibly faster than what you'll get inside the Motorola One Vision. The primary sensor is joined by a depth sensor for portrait mode. As a result, you don't get the full 48 MP photos the rear camera is capable of, instead, you get 12MP images that are allegedly brighter. Up front, there is a 25-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture as well.
