Although Motorola has been slow to roll out Android 10 to most of its devices globally, the company is at least keeping developers happy with steady kernel source releases. Over the past few weeks, Motorola has released updated source code packages for most of its phones, accelerating the creation of custom ROMs and recovery partitions.
Motorola has only unveiled the Moto One Zoom last week during IFA 2019 in Berlin. We were pretty impressed when we first held it in our hands – unlike many other mid-range phones from the company, this one offers quite some high-end features for $450. The Lenovo subsidiary would like to make its new product even more compelling to consumers and has thus started a limited promotion on its website, offering a $50 rebate when you purchase the phone through its online store.
Motorola's recent budget and mid-range offerings haven't been as compelling as in years gone by, but the freshly announced One Zoom is a different beast altogether. The highlight, of course, is the quad-camera setup on the back, something few phones in any price bracket can boast. The inclusion of an in-display fingerprint sensor and an OLED display make this the most feature-rich Motorola One phone to date. This also explains the higher price tag of $450/€429. Unlike the One series phones that have come before it, the Zoom won’t be an Android One device at all; not in any market.
