Motorola One starts receiving Android 9.0 Pie update

Lenovo-owned Motorola launched two new Android One smartphones back in late August this year – the Motorola One and the Motorola One Power. Both these smartphones were launched with Android 8.1 Oreo, but Motorola promised to upgrade them with Android 9.0 Pie soon. Well, the Motorola One Power received its Android Pie update more than a week ago. And now, Motorola has started rolling out the Android Pie update for Motorola One as well.


The Android Pie update for Motorola One has started rolling out over-the-air, and should reach all the units in a week or two. However, if you don’t get an update notification even after that, then you can check for the update manually by heading over to the Settings > System > System updates menu.

In addition to bringing redesigned UI and new features, the Android Pie update also brings in latest security patch to the Motorola One.
