Back in April, Motorola launched the Edge and Edge+, marking the Lenovo-owned brand’s return to flagship smartphones. Both devices have Qualcomm’s latest chipsets announced in December, multi-camera arrays, large batteries, and the same 90Hz curved OLED displays. While the Edge+ is rather expensive, the regular Edge should be much more affordable when it launches later this year. However, the Edge may be joined by a cheaper mid-range smartphone in the Motorola One lineup. The Motorola One Fusion+ may be launching as early as next month if a new listing from Google is to be believed.
Earlier today, I noticed that the YouTube Device Report page was updated with several new listings, though I don’t know exactly when the page was updated with these listings. One of the new listings is for the unreleased Motorola One Fusion+, which was a name that was first leaked by Evan Blass last month. According to the listing, the One Fusion+ has a 6.5-inch 1080p display, runs Android 10, has a large 5,000mAh battery, and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor. The release date is listed as “Jun 2020,” so the phone could launch sometime next month.
The Motorola One Fusion+ render that was included in the listing is identical to one of the official press renders of the Motorola Edge in Solar Black, so it’s likely that the image that YouTube uploaded is simply a placeholder. On the other hand, the image that YouTube uploaded for the Motorola Edge is clearly not of the device, so it’s likely that the image shown below is actually of the Motorola One Fusion+. The only other Motorola smartphone with a 64MP camera is the Motorola One Hyper, and that definitely isn’t the device shown below.
Based on the render, we can see that the One Fusion+ has a flat display, quad rear cameras with a 64MP primary sensor, a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. We can’t tell if this device has a hole-punch display cutout that’s cleverly obscured by the wallpaper or if it has a pop-up camera like the One Hyper.
Thanks to a source, we have some additional details to share about the Motorola One Fusion+. The device, code-named “liberty”, has model numbers XT2067-1 and XT2067-2. The device has a 6.53″ display at 2340×1080 resolution, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor, 4/6GB of RAM, 64/128GB of internal storage, a 5,000mAh battery, and runs Android 10. The phone has multiple cameras, including Samsung’s 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 as the primary camera. Although I have details on the other cameras, I don’t know exactly how they’re arranged, so that’s something I’ll continue to look into ahead of the device’s launch. The device with model name XT2067-1 has already been certified by the FCC with support for GSM850/1900, WCDMA Bands II/V, and LTE Bands 2/5/7/38/41. The device is expected to launch in two colors: Cloud and Sugarfrost. It should go on sale in multiple regions including Latin America, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and India.
Motorola is also expected to launch the cheaper Motorola One Fusion alongside the + model. The regular One Fusion, code-named “Titan,” has model numbers XT2073-1 and XT2073-2. The device has a 6.52″ display at 1600×720 resolution, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, 4/6GB of RAM, 64/128GB of internal storage, a 5,000mAh battery, and Android 10. The phone will have quad rear cameras including Samsung’s 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM1 as the primary camera joined by 5MP, 8MP, and 2MP camera sensors. On the front, the device should have an 8MP camera. The One Fusion should land in Brazil, Latin America, and several Asian countries in black and blue colors.
We don’t know the overall design of the Motorola One Fusion or the pricing of the One Fusion or One Fusion+, but given the purported June 2020 launch date leaked by YouTube, we’ll soon find out.
