Motorola will soon be launching the all-new Moto One Action smartphone in India on August 23.

But as you flip the phone to reveal it’s rear profile, you will be welcomed by the triple-camera setup on the One Action when compared to the dual-camera setup on the older One Vision.
Both the smartphones offer some gorgeous curved glass bodies along with rear-mounted fingerprint scanner embossed with the Motorola logo.
