Beautifully crafted with a striking display

The aspect ratio of 21:9 gives you an amazing viewing experience whether you are browsing web pages or watching movies in landscape mode. The longer aspect of the display shows more lines on a webpage so you don't need to scroll around as much.
The Full HD+ display stretches from edge-to-edge and has slim bezels. As there is only a small cutout for the selfie lens you get to enjoy even more screen with an almost uninterrupted view. Even with the big display, the sleek design makes it easy to use the phone one-handed.

Camera & Video
Quad Pixel camera
The rear camera on the Motorola One Vision is a dual-lens which is made up of:
- 48MP main camera with an f/1.7 aperture
- 5MP depth sensor with an f2.2 aperture
The camera uses Quad Pixel technology to combine four pixels into one large pixel. This delivers incredibly sharp 12MP photos. By combining the pixels this way the photos are brighter and are clearer with less noise distortion. Other features of the camera include:
Optical Image Stabilisation - by reducing blur from shaky hands you get beautifully clear images even in low light
Night Vision - in low light conditions you can use the Night Vision feature to bring in more detail. This results in brighter images with accurate colours.
25MP selfie camera
The front camera is a high-resolution 25MP lens for amazing selfies and group photos. There are different Portrait modes for adding professional lighting touches. You can also use the Quad Pixel option for incredibly detailed 6MP selfies, this is particularly useful in low light.
