Earlier this year, we heard rumors that Motorola was working on a couple new phones that ditched the now-iconic Moto branding and were powered by Android One. At IFA 2018, the company confirmed those rumors by announcing the Motorola One and Motorola One Power.
Starting first with the regular Motorola One, the phone features a 5.9-inch LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1520. A Snapdragon 625 and 4GB RAM power the phone, in addition to a respectable 3,000 mAh battery. There's a 13MP + 2MP rear camera combo, 8MP front-facing camera, 64GB of expandable storage, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a rear fingerprint sensor.
Moving up to the Motorola One Power, we've got a nearly identical design with upgraded specs across the board. The display is larger and crispier at 6.2-inches and 1080 x 2246, the Snapdragon 636 is snappier, and the 5,000 mAh battery should offer considerably better runtime. The cameras are also improved with the rear shooters being 16MP + 5MP while the selfie camera is 12MP.
Aside from that, RAM, storage, ports, and software are all the same compared to the Motorola One.
Both phones are running Android One and ship with 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Motorola's promising two big software updates for each device, meaning they should be supported through Android Q. They're also getting a guaranteed three years of monthly security patches.
In regards to pricing and availability, the Motorola One is launching throughout various countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America for €299. As for Motorola One Power, it's coming to India in October for an unknown price.
