Motorola phone leaks appear to be dropping like flies these days. One of the more interesting smartphones the company has in the works is an upper mid-range model with a focus on camera features.
The Motorola One Zoom is a smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of UFS storage plus a microSD card reader for removable storage.
But it’s the four cameras on the back of this Motorola One Zoom that make it a bit unusual for a smartphone that’s priced at 400 Euros (about $450 US).
The primary camera is expected to be a 48MP camera with optical image stabilization and the ability to either save either high-resolution 48MP pictures or to capture more light by combining data from four pixels into one and saving 12MP images with a 1.6 µm pixel size.
The smartphone likely gets its name from the 81mm camera lens, which gives the Motorola One Zoom 3x optical zoom capabilities.
A third camera has a 13mm lens for wide-angle photography. And the fourth… that’s unclear at the moment, but it’s probably a depth-sensing camera of some sort.
Other features are expected to include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a small notch in the display for a front-facing camera, and possibly an in-display fingerprint sensor (since there doesn’t appear to be one visible on the sides or back of the phone).
I’m REALLY interested in that 81mm lens. I do hope it offers a really wide aperture. f1.8 or faster would be really neat.
I wonder how well the camera handles the user’s ability to choose focal lengths between the 13mm, and 81mm lenses. Presumably all other pictures will be taken using the primary 48mp sensor, with variable amounts of crop?
It would be really nice if the camera app let you specify some preset focal lengths. I really hope they dont just have a zoom-slider. I would prefer to do the majority of my photos as close to 50mm as possible.
It really bothers me when smartphones have multiple sensors, and they omit the highly desirable 50mm focal length. Especially when they offer multiple wide-angle lenses. So unnecessary.
