- Motorola is expected to launch two new Android One phones soon in India.
- The phone will be called the Fusion and Fusion Plus.
- The Fusion Plus will be using the Snapdragon 675 chipset.
Motorola has been limiting itself mostly to affordable smartphones in India for the last two years with its Android One series of devices. Last year, we saw a bunch of those phones with unique specifications, offering a decent mix of value to specifications. Motorola seems to be continuing with that trend this year with two new Android One phones, called the Fusion and Fusion Plus.
Popular tipster Evan Blass has given out the name of two new upcoming Motorola phones and another report from 91Mobiles gives out some of the specifications on them. The phones are called Motorola One Fusion and Motorola One Fusion Plus. There's no reason as of now as too why they are called Fusion but it could be possible that Motorola could be using a punch-hole cutout for the front camera. Hence, the name Fusion? We don't know until Motorola briefs us on this.
While we don't have clarity on the names, we do have some idea on the specifications. Specifically for the Motorola One Fusion Plus, which is the higher-end model. The Fusion Plus is rocking the most hyped midrange chipset from Qualcomm from 2019. The report says that phone will use a Snapdragon 675 chip that will be paired with either 4GB or 6GB RAM as well as 64GB and 128GB storage.
The Plus variant will also have a 12-megapixel main camera, which is unheard of in times when everyone is moving to 64-megapixel camera sensors even on dirt-cheap phones. There's a Dual SIM functionality and it will come in Light Blue as well as Light Brown colours. Official renders and prices are yet to be leaked or revealed.
While it is prematurely early to comment on these phones based on just rumours, it seems that Motorola is sticking to its strategy of using older hardware for its affordable phones. Chances are that these phones could end up in the same price bracket as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro, in which case, it seems that Motorola could be having a hard time selling these phones. Why would someone buy a phone with a Snapdragon 675 when you can get a newer and more capable Snapdragon 720G-equipped for similar prices?
Motorola is currently focused on selling the Razr foldable phone in India, the sale of which has been delayed umpteen times. The Razr is Motorola's most expensive phone in India at a price of Rs 1,24,999.
