Lenovo-owned Motorola has officially launched the Motorola One Power Android One smartphone today in India at an event. Motorola announced that September 25 is the company’s 90th anniversary; it marks its anniversary by launching a new product in India, pledging to make more for the country. Motorola One Power will be among the first devices to get Android 9 Pie.
The company claims that this smartphone has a “precision-crafted metal design” and has a fingerprint sensor at the back with the Motorola logo placed on the sensor. It seems that the new device will compete against Xiaomi Mi A2 and Nokia 6.1 Plus, smartphones that feature Android One.
The Motorola One Power has a large 6.2-inch display with a notch, giving it a 19:9 screen to body ratio. The smartphone is powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 processor; it runs Android 8.1 Oreo, which is upgradable to Android Pie. It carries a 64GB internal storage that is further expandable up to 256GB. The device also comes with USB Type-C connectivity and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The smartphone has a 16-megapixel rear camera and a secondary 5-megapixel rear camera, with a 12-megapixel sensor on the front. Motorola has included just the top three customizations, which include the double twist gesture to fire up the camera. The Motorola One Power has a splash-proof coating and ships with a case.
Talking about the software, it ships with Android 8.1 Oreo. Since this smartphone is a part of the Android One program, it doesn’t include all of the Motorola customizations from the software point of view.
The novelty will be available exclusively on Flipkart at Rs. 15,999, with registrations for purchases beginning today. The smartphone will go on sale on October 15.
