In a bit of a surprise announcement, Verizon announced the Motorola One 5G UW Ace. The device is semi-related to the Moto One 5G Ace which was released earlier this year, but there are two key differences with the UW Ace that set it apart.
The first of which is the support for Verizon’s mmWave 5G cellular network. This is much faster than the normal 5G network, but is less reliable and much more difficult to find. The differentiating feature in the UW Ace is Verizon’s new “Adaptive Sound” which is described as:
Verizon Adaptive Sound, which produces brilliant spatial surround experience regardless of what headphone, soundbar or earbud brand you use or what application you’re watching or listening to, including Dolby Atmos-enabled content.
While the One 5G UW Ace will be the first Verizon handset to include Adaptive Sound, the carrier did state that it would be coming to other devices via a software update in the future.
Other specs for this new handset include a 6.7-inch FHD+ display, the Snapdragon 750G paired with 6GB of RAM, and a 5,000mAh battery. There’s also a triple-camera array on the back with a 48MP primary lens, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP depth sensor.
The Motorola One 5G UW Ace is available today from Verizon and is priced at $299.99 if you want to purchase it outright. Monthly plans are also available starting at just $12.49 per month for 24 months. Or you can get it for free if you sign up for one of Verizon’s “premium unlimited plans”.
