BASKING RIDGE, N.J. The motorola one 5G UW promises ultra-fast speed and ultra-sharp photos, and customers will soon be able to experience both on the network with 5G built right. Verizon today confirmed that Motorola’s newest phone will be among the first Android-powered devices to support Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband1 and the newly announced 5G Nationwide, offering customers even more opportunity to experience the transformative power of 5G.

5G Ultra Wideband and 5G Nationwide

At launch, motorola one 5G UW will connect to Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband, where available, allowing customers to quickly grab large work files with download speeds as high as 25x faster than 4G LTE2. 5G Ultra Wideband also opens the door for noticeably lower lag for better video streaming and improved mobile gaming experiences. The phone can also connect to Verizon’s newly announced 5G Nationwide network, covering over 200 million customers in more than 1,800 markets3.

A fast phone, inside and out

Built for speed inside and out, a 48-megapixel Quad camera takes beautiful pictures in every situation. The ultra-wide lens fits 4x more of the scene into the picture, and the depth sensor makes subjects pop in photos, so they're in focus more than the background. The macro camera with ring flash gets closer to the subject, so photos also look sharp and bright.

Paired with a Get More Unlimited plan that includes Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ at no additional cost, motorola one 5G UW is an entertainment dream come true4. Its 6.7-inch CinemaVision HD+ display lets video shine from edge to edge, and the 90 Hz screen refresh allows for quick switching between apps and a fluid gaming experience.
