Motorola One Power starts receiving Android Pie update in India with Dual VoLTE support

Becomes the first Motorola smartphone to get the Android Pie update

A couple of hours ago, we told you about Motorola confirming to roll out Android Pie update for One Power in the next few days. Motorola hadn’t shared the exact timeline for the roll-out, but we speculated that the company would commence the roll-out by next week. However, owners of Motorola One Power will be glad to know that they no longer have to wait for Android Pie update as Motorola has started rolling out the update in India.


The Motorola One Power was launched in India back in late September this year, and it came with Android 8.1 Oreo instead of Android Pie. But, just under two months from the launch, the One Power has started receiving the Android Pie update in India.

This update not only upgrades the One Power from Oreo to Pie, but also brings in Dual VoLTE support to the smartphone. The update also includes some camera improvements, and bumps up the Android security patch level to November 1, 2018.

Here’s the changelog of Android 9.0 Pie update for Motorola One Power:

  • Upgrade system from Android O to Android P
  • Add LTE+LTE (Dual Volte) feature
  • Add Panorama feature for camera
  • Camera improvements
  • Android security update through 1 November 2018

The Android Pie update for Motorola One Power in India is rolling out over-the-air, and should reach all the units in a week or two. However, if you can’t wait for the update notification to pop-up on your smartphone, you can check for the update manually by heading over to the Settings > System > System updates menu. Motorola has asked users to make sure they have at least 50% battery left on their One Power before installing the update.
