Lenovo-owned Motorola announced two new Android One smartphones back in late August this year – the Motorola One, and the Motorola One Power. Being Android One smartphones, both of these should have come with Android Pie out-of-the-box, but instead, both of them came with Android 8.1 Oreo. However, Motorola has promised to upgrade the smartphones with Android Pie by the end of this year, and, it looks like out of both these smartphones, the Motorola One Power may get a pie of Android Pie soon.
The Motorola One Power has appeared on popular benchmarking site Geekbench with Android 9.0 Pie which is the latest version of Android. Well, this means we can expect Motorola to roll-out Android Pie update for One Power soon. However, we are unsure of when exactly will Motorola roll-out Android Pie update for this smartphone. Motorola has already confirmed that it will roll-out Android Pie for One Power before the end of this year, so it now remains to be seen whether Motorola stays true to its words.
Like we already said, the Motorola One Power is an Android One smartphone, and being an Android One smartphone, it comes with the promise of two years of Android version updates and three years of security updates.
The Motorola One Power was launched in India back in late September with a price tag of ₹15,999. It sports a 6.2-inch 19:9 MaxVision display and rocks dual cameras at the back. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 SoC which is mated to 4 GB RAM. The smartphone also ships with a massive 5000 mAh battery which is one of its biggest highlights.
