Lenovo-owned smartphone company Motorola has announced the launch of a new smartphone in China.
Named the Motorola P50, some key specifications of it were posted on Chinese social media platform Weibo by Lenovo Group VP Chang Cheng. Chang said the smartphone would be launched there this week.
The poster for the Motorola P50 says the smartphone sports a 6.34-inch superwide display with a resolution of 21:9. It supports DCI-P3 color gamut has a punch-hole at its top-left to make room for the 25MP selfie camera.
The back of the smartphone is curved and is made out of 3D glass. The dual camera setup here has a 48MP primary camera with Optical Image Stabilisation. It has an aperture of f/1.75 with a pixel size of 1.6micron. It offers features like night scene mode, intelligent scene recognition and 4K video shooting.
Other features of the smartphone include moto gestures, Dolby sound, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C, dual 4G VoLTE, hybrid SIM slot and 128 GB of built-in storage.
If you paid close attention to the poster, you might have noticed the smartphone bears an uncanny resemblance to the Moto One Vision launched in India last month. This isn’t that surprising, as Motorola re-branded the Moto One-series of smartphone to Moto P30 in China. This was mainly because Moto One smartphones run the Android One operating system, that is full of Google functionalities.
Smartphones sold in China are barred from using pre-installed Google apps. Hence, Motorola changed the identity of the smartphone series before launching it in China. More
