Pre-orders for the Motorola One Action went live earlier this month, but now the phone is officially available in the U.S. and ready to ship. Right now, you can pick it up for $300 from Amazon or B&H Photo which is $50 off of its retail price. It's also available from Best Buy, but it doesn't include the $50 instant discount.

The Motorola One Action earned its "Action" moniker thanks to its ingenious video camera on the back which shoots ultra-wide landscape videos while in portrait mode. That means that not only will you never have to worry about turning your phone in landscape when taking videos, but with the 117-degree lens, you'll also be able to get everything in view like never before.

Under the hood, the Motorola One Action is powered by an Exynos 9609 processor, 4GB of RAM, and includes a 3,500 mAh battery. It also features 128GB of storage and a microSD card slot with support for up to 512GB, ensuring you'll never run out of space while shooting videos with the action cam.

The action camera isn't the only thing that's ultra-wide on this smartphone, as the Motorola One Action is also using a 6.3-inch 21:9 CinemaVision HD+ display to enjoy your videos on. Plus, Motorola kept the bezels to a minimum by using a cutout for the front-facing 12MP camera.
