Motorola One Power States Why Lenovo Should Stay Aggressive in India
Since the acquisition of Lenovo, Motorola has been a different company- it stopped rolling out software updates and behaved like a Tier-I brand relying completely on marketing. There isn't a single attractive launch of Motorola in India this year, but the Motorola One Power changed that. The One Power is a clear example of why Lenovo should stay aggressive in the Indian market.
Motorola One Power: Specifications and Pricing
The Motorola One Power is the Lenovo-owned company's first Android One smartphone to launch in India. The phone packs a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display on the front, coupled with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D curved glass. Internally, it's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A dedicated microSD card slot helps in expanding the storage.
The phone rocks dual rear cameras of 16MP+5MP, followed by a 12MP front-facing camera. The USP of the smartphone is the massive 5000mAh battery which refuses to die on a single charge. As we have pointed out in our full review, the One Power is the best battery smartphone out there right now. Being an Android One handset, it runs a stock version of Android 8.1 Oreo with little customisations.
The phone is priced aggressively at Rs 15,999, same as the Nokia 6.1 Plus which also offers the Snapdragon 636 chipset.
