After months of speculation and leaks, Motorola has finally announced its Android One devices — Motorola One and Motorola One Power.
In a blog post, the company states that Motorola One series will be the first one to receive Android Pie, joining the Android One device queue which will be receiving the update later this fall.
As for the specifications, both of the devices have some pretty interesting features –
Motorola Android One Specifications –
Motorola One has a curved glass body with 5.9-inch FHD+ screen and 19:9 aspect ratio, coupled with a notch on the top. The device has a glass back with a dual camera setup. While the main sensor camera sensor is 13 MP, the other one is still unknown. The front-facing single camera has a single lens of 8 MP.
As for the insides, apart from Snapdragon 625 with clocking speed up to 2.0 GHz, there isn’t much information available. However, GSMArena discovered a Spanish Amazon listing which states device holding a 4GB RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Regardless, I wouldn’t bet on it since the same listing mentions a 12 MP camera, different from the original company post.
Motorola One Power Specifications –
This Motorola device is focused on giving more battery life. The device has 6.2-inch Full HD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio, again coupled with a notch.
The device runs on Snapdragon 636 SoC and comes with 64 GB of expandable storage. While there is not much info is revealed by the company, the press release seems pretty much focused around “power” and “battery.” Thus, we might see a bigger battery, probably touching 5000 mAh.
Regarding the price and release date, the company mentions that Motorola One will launch for a price of €299 RPP (around Rs. 25,000) in Europe, Latin America, and the Asia Pacific in the coming months.
While Motorola One Power price is not mentioned, the post states that the device will come in India, starting from October.
The most important takeaway from these new Motorola devices is that both are powered by Android One. In other words, you get stock Android experience with Google security updates up to 3 years.
