Motorola One Fusion+ Indian variant confirmed to come with Snapdragon 730G chip in India

Last week, Motorola confirmed that it is bringing the Fusion+ to India after it revealed the phone globally. The Fusion+ is going to be Motorola's main offering in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment this year and based on what we have seen so far from the global model's specifications, this could challenge the Poco X2. That said, Motorola is going to make the Indian variant different with one major upgrade.
The One Fusion+ for India is going to use a different chipset when compared to the global model. Motorola is going to give the Fusion+ a more powerful Snapdragon 730G chipset, which is currently the most capable 4G midrange chipset phone makers can use. This is the same chipset that Poco uses in the Poco X2. The 730G is the preferred choice for gamers in the midrange segment.
Motorola has also confirmed a couple of other things about the Fusion+. The phone is going to end up with a 6.5-inch display that supports HDR10 colours. The main camera setup is going to offers 64-megapixel sensor that uses Motorola's Quad-Pixel technology for better low-light photos.
The teasers have also revealed that the One Fusion+ will come in two colour variants: Blue and White. The white variant is going to have its bezels finished in white, which is unheard of in the smartphone space. There's also going to be a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, which suggests that the phone will end up with an LCD display.
Based on the international specifications, the One Fusion+ is coming with a large 5000mAh battery and even 15W fast charging. The phone could launch with Android 10 onboard but given that it belongs to the Android One programme, the One Fusion+ could end up getting two Android OS upgrades over its lifetime.
It remains to be seen what pricing strategy does Motorola go for in India with the Fusion+. Motorola has been quite aggressive with its pricing in the recent times but it has compromised with the specifications. The One Fusion+, at least on paper, doesn't seem to have many compromises. Hence, Motorola could offer it as an alternative to the Poco X2, which currently is the most feature-rich phone in this segment.
That said, the One Fusion+ runs on stock Android and Motorola usually avoids putting bloatware on its phones, which is a plus point for those who want a smartphone with a clean Android experience.
The Motorola One Fusion+ is launching on June 16 and will sell via Flipkart.
