Lenovo-owned Motorola has launched a new mid-segment smartphone called as the Moto 1s. It looks similar to the recently launched Moto G6 but comes with different internals. The phone is currently launched only in China and is priced at CNY 1,499 (~ Rs. 15,900). It is already available for purchase from Lenovo and Motorola’s official online Chinese stores. Let’s see what the new mid-segment device from Motorola has to offer.
As mentioned earlier, the Moto 1s looks a lot like the Moto G6, built in a typical Motorola fashion. For a mid-segment phone, it does look quite premium. The phone is available in two different colours: Victoria Blue and Charlotte Powder. It is fitted with a 5.7-inch display and there are bezels on top and bottom. The top one houses a selfie-camera and a couple of sensors. Whereas the bottom one stocks the home button and fingerprint sensor combined in a single physical button. The phone comes with Dolby audio technology to enhance the audio experience.
In terms of performance, the Moto 1s comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset. It is further coupled with 4GB of RAM for allowing smooth multi-tasking. The phone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and is layered with the brand’s ZUI 3.5 on top. There is 64GB inbuilt storage in the phone and it can be expanded externally via a microSD card slot up to 128GB.
There’s a dual-rear camera setup that combines a 12-megapixel sensor with another 5-megapixel one. This allows the phone to take bokeh mode pictures and do much more. On the front, there is a 16-megapixel front camera for taking selfies and making video calls.
The Moto 1s is powered by a 3000mAh battery unit which will likely provide a day’s power on full charge. As for connectivity options, it gets 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. It is still unknown whether this phone will make it to the Indian market. If it does, we’ll keep you updated.
