Motorola has not had a stellar year ever since its acquisition by Lenovo for $3 billion back in 2014. Despite a string of releases in previously-popular lineups, Motorola has simply been unable to compete against the flood of high-value smartphones from China. Motorola may be looking to change this, as now, Evan ‘evleaks’ Blass has shared images of an upcoming Motorola device that is keeping up with the times’ thanks to a notchless and fullscreen display.
The image shared by Evan comes with no additional context, so we are a bit lost on which device this could be. What we can ascertain from the image is the fact that the phone will come with thin bezels on three edges and a chin where one will find the Motorola branding. There is no front camera visible on the device, so it wouldn’t be incorrect to presume that the phone will come with a pop-up selfie camera.
The second image simply shows off the volume rocker and the power button on the right side of the device, which, unfortunately, also does not reveal a lot about the device. The top earpiece speaker grille is also not immediately visible in these renders.
What we do know about this device is that this obviously isn’t the upcoming Motorola One Action that is scheduled to be launched in India on August 23, 2019. The pictured device could be the Motorola One Macro or the Motorola One Pro, or a completely different device.
It will be too early to judge whether this device will be enough to turn around Motorola’s fortunes. Devices like the Moto G7 series are sometimes the only realistic option available in certain regions, in which case, the stock Android experience and the rest of the hardware make for a compelling choice. Updated hardware design will give one less point of detraction against Motorola’s lineup in the future, so we hope this gets matched with powerful hardware on the inside.
