Coming to the specifications, Motorola One Macro is equipped with a 6.2-inch IPS LCD MaxVision display with a resolution of 720×1520 pixels, 19:9 aspect ratio, and 270ppi pixel density. The display also features a waterdrop notch housing selfie camera, thin bezels and a sizeable chin. This results in a screen-to-body-ratio of 81.3 percent. Under the hood, the device is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset paired with Mali-G72 Mp3 GPU, 4GB RAM, and 64GB onboard memory. The smartphone comes with a hybrid SIM slot allowing you to expand the memory at the cost of the SIM 2 slot.
For imaging, there is a triple camera module at the back which consists of 13MP primary sensor (f/2.0), 2MP macro lens (f/2.2) and 2MP depth sensor (f/2.2). The primary sensor can record 1080p videos at 60fps and slow-mo at 120fps. The device also features a Laser AF system for quick focus. For selfies, there is an 8MP front snapper having an aperture of f/2.0. All of these are backed by a massive 4,000mAh battery with 10W regular charging. Thankfully, the device uses USB Type-C port for charging.
Unlike other One devices, One Macro runs on the tweaked version of Android 9.0 Pie instead of the Android One platform. Motorola has promised 2-year software support along with an Android 10 update in the near future.
