The Motorola One has been officially announced today. This is the latest Android One phone, which was announced along with the Moto One Power.
The Moto One has a 5.9-inch HD+ Max Vision display, with an aspect ratio of 19:9, and a notch screen design. The phone runs on stock Android Oreo 8.1, and the company has promised that the device will be updated to Android Pie 9.0, soon after the launch.
The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with 4GB of RAM. The Moto One has dual rear cameras with 13MP lenses with an LED Flash, one of which is a depth sensor for portrait mode. The front sensor is an 8MP selfie camera. The cameras are AI powered by Google lens.
The Moto One has a fingerprint scanner embedded in the M logo on the back panel. Speaking of logos, there is an Android One logo on the back panel, and a Motorola logo on the chin of the front panel.
Surprisingly, Moto has not announced the rest of the Motorola One Android One technical specifications yet. The only other thing we know, is that the device supports turbopower charging, which can deliver up to 6 hours of power, in just 20 minutes of charging.
Moto One Android One price and availability:
The Moto One Android One has been priced at €299, and will be available in Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific in the next few months. The price translates to nearly Rs. 25,000 or $350. So much for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 phone? Perhaps the Lenovo owned company has missed the Poco F1 announcement. Why spend $350 on an SD 625 device, when you can get a flagship Snapdragon 845 powered phone for Rs. 21,000 ($300).
Given that Moto has a terrible history of updates in the recent years, we don’t expect the Moto One to have a huge impact on the market, even if it is an Android One device.
