Motorola One 5G UW Ace was launched on Thursday as a new Motorola 5G phone exclusively available on Verizon. As the name suggests, Motorola One 5G UW Ace supports 5G Ultra-wideband connectivity to deliver a faster experience. There is also Verizon's Adaptive Sound system that is aimed to deliver a spatial audio experience and compete against the likes of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. However, apart from the two major changes, Motorola One 5G UW Ace is quite similar to the Motorola One 5G Ace that debuted earlier this year.
Motorola One 5G UW Ace price has been set at $299.99 (roughly Rs. 22,400) for the lone 4GB + 64GB storage variant. The phone comes in a single Volcanic Grey colour option and is available for purchase through Verizon. Customers on the Verizon network can also pick it on a contract under which they need to pay $12.49 (Rs. 930) a month for 24 months along with a one-time activation fee of $35 (Rs. 2,600).
Motorola One 5G Ace was launched in January at $399.99 (Rs. 29,800) for the 6GB + 128GB storage model. The phone was also announced in a 4GB + 64GB storage option, but that did not come with an official price at the time of the announcement.
The new Motorola One 5G UW Ace runs on Android 11. It features a 6.7-inch full-HD+ Max Vision display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. There is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC, along with 4GB of RAM. For photos and videos, Motorola One 5G UW Ace has a triple rear camera setup that comprises a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide shooter, and a 2-megapixel macro shooter. There is also a 16-megapixel selfie camera at the front.
For storing content, Motorola One 5G UW Ace has 64GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 1TB). Connectivity options include 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone also comes with a fingerprint sensor at the back.
Motorola One 5G UW Ace comes preloaded with the Verizon Adaptive Sound system that is designed to offer spatial, surround sound experience, without requiring any specific hardware or software. The feature also works with all major apps and over-the-top (OTT) platforms. It offers sound profiles such as Music and Video that users can choose to get a customised experience.
Verizon said that its proprietary sound system will come on some existing devices through an over-the-air (OTA) software update in the future. However, details about which devices will get it are yet to be revealed.
Motorola One 5G UW Ace packs a 5,000mAh battery with up to 20W fast charging. The battery pack can deliver up to two days of power on a single charge.
