Motorola today has launched yet another budget smartphone dubbed Motorola One Action in the Indian market. The One Action is the fourth smartphone to join the Moto One family which already includes original Motorola One, Motorola One Vision and Motorola One Power. As the name suggests, Motorola One Action focusses more on videography and can capture action shots from a dedicated sensor. One of the key feature devices includes the ability to record horizontal videos without tilting your phone at all. This means that you can record horizontal videos while keeping your phone in a vertical position. The smartphone maker was able to achieve this with the help of the ultrawide angle lens.
