Motorola has unveiled two new smartphones today. They are the motorola one and motorola one power and both are Android One phones. Surprisingly, Motorola has decided to give them a silent launch via an official blog post. We want to believe this is because of the flak they got with the Motorola P30.
The motorola one isn’t the international equivalent of the Motorola P30. It is actually the Motorola XT1941-2 that showed up on TENAA two weeks ago (with the exception of the processor).
The phone has a 5.99-inch HD+ Max Vision display with a notch at the top. It also has glass on the back. The motorola one is powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor. Moto fails to mention the RAM and storage capacity but since this is the same device as the one that showed up on TENAA, we believe it is coming with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage based on its price.
The motorola one has a primary 13MP f/2.0 camera paired with a second 2MP sensor. It can record in 4K and has a bunch of camera modes. The selfie camera is an 8MP f/2.2 sensor and can shoot portrait photos.
There is a 3,000mAh battery under the hood, a fingerprint scanner under the batwing logo, and a USB-C port. It also has a 3.5mm audio jack. It comes with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box but Motorola has promised that it will receive two updates to the latest version of Android (so Android Pie and hopefully Android Q) and will be among the first to get upgraded to Android 9 Pie after it launches.
The motorola one is priced at €299 (~$349) and will be available in Europe, Latin America, and Asia Pacific in the coming months.
motorola one power
The motorola one power has a 6.2-inch FHD+ Max Vision display with a 19:9 aspect ratio thanks to the notch at the top. It is powered by the Snapdragon 636 mobile platform with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
There are 16MP+5MP dual cameras on the rear and a 12MP sensor within the notch. Motorola doesn’t mention the battery capacity but since the device already showed up on TENAA, we know it has a 4850mAh (~5000mAh battery).
The motorola one has a USB-C port, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and an audio jack. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo and it will get the same software treatment as the motorola one. So Android 9 Pie as soon as possible and Android Q next year. Both phones will also get three years of monthly security update starting from next month.
Unfortunately, the motorola one power will only be available in India. Motorola hasn’t revealed a price yet. Both phones are also only available in Black.
