There have been quite a few leaks over the past few months suggesting that Motorola would soon launch a couple of new handsets. It has done just that at IFA 2018 in Berlin. The company has announced the launch of its Motorola One and Motorola One Power handsets. They’re mid-range devices powered by Android.
Both smartphones are part of Google’s Android One initiative so users will get a vanilla Android experience in addition to regular security updates for three years and major OS updates for two years. They ship with Android 8.1 and Motorola is saying that they will be updated to Android 9.0 Pie in due course.
The Motorola One features a 5.9-inch HD 19:9 aspect ratio display, has a Snapdragon 625 processor, and a 3,000mAh battery. There’s Gorilla Glass on the front and back to protect the build. Motorola will release it in Europe, Latin America, and Asia come October for approximately $350.
The Motorola One Power has a metal back and a larger 6.2 inch Full HD+ display. It also has the more powerful Snapdragon 636 processor and a 5,000mAh battery. The company says that the handset will be able to last for up to two full days on a single charge. It also has 64GB of onboard storage.
Motorola will be offering the Motorola One Power in India starting in October. Pricing will be confirmed later.
