Motorola has unveiled two new smartphones — namely, Motorola One and Motorola One Power. Both of these new phones are based Google’s Android One operating system.
Motorola One is powered by a 2.0 GHz Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor. It features a 5.9-inch HD screen along with a 13MP dual camera system at the back and an 8MP front camera.
Motorola One Power has a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display. It’s powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor and has 64GB of built-in storage.
Both models support TurboCharge which can provide up to 6 hours of battery life in 15 minutes (in One Power) or 20 minutes (in One). ‘One Power’ can provide up to two days of battery backup, according to Motorola, while ‘One’ can go on for a full day on a single charge.
Mototola One and One Power will be among the first smartphones to receive Android 9 Pie when it arrives next year. Both models will receive guaranteed security updates for three years.
The €299 Motorola One will be available in the coming months in various countries across Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific. One Power will be available in India in October.

None of these phones are aimed at competing with flagships. Instead, they are focused towards providing streamlined Android performance without pre-loaded apps, at a competitive price. The $257 Nokia 6.1 and $249 Huawei Mate SE are among th popular Android One smartphones currently available.
