Lenovo owned brand, Motorola has announced that that it would be launching its new device, the Motorola One Power on September 24 in India. The device was initially launched in Berlin, and it’s now going to make its way to India in the mid-range pricing strata. The phone will come with Android One certification meaning that it will boot stock Android along with a promise of quick monthly security updates and patches. In the Indian market, the phone will go against the extremely popular Redmi Note 5 Pro which has already established its name as one of the highest selling devices of 2018. Without further ado, let’s move forward and look at the top 5 features of the upcoming Motorola One Power.
Camera and Imaging
The Motorola One Power flaunts a dual rear camera setup, comprising of 16MP+5MP and a 12MP front shooter. The rear camera on the Motorola One Power comes equipped with dual LED dual-tone flash, and its primary sensor features an aperture of f/1.8 and 1.12-micrometre pixels. The primary camera comes enabled with PDAF, and it can shoot slow-motion HD videos as well as Full HD+ videos in 2160p quality. The front camera shoots in 1.25-micrometre pixels. It’s also worth noting that the Redmi Note 5 Pro comes with a 12MP+5MP dual rear setup which gives the Motorola One Power an edge over the Xiaomi phone.
Display and Design
The biggest highlight of the Motorola One Power, as one would expect is the notched display which comes with 6.2-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD and an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. The screen renders a pixel density of 402 pixels per inch, and the device is also splash resistant. The form factor of the phone is very slim and the thickness measures to be 8.4 mm, however, like other Moto phones, this one also weighs a bit on the heavier side at 198 grams. There is a rear mounted fingerprint sensor and the phone sports very thin bezels lending it a premium finish.
Most phones in the budget segment sport the MediaTek processor, which are although economic, but fail to match the level of Qualcomm Snapdragon processors when it comes to performance. The Motorola One Power, however, comes with Snapdragon 636 SoC with Kyro 260 architecture which clocks a speed of 1.8GHz. The SoC also comes paired with Adreno 509 GPU. This setup comes paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which is expandable to 256GB.
The Motorola One Power might be one of the very few devices which can defeat the Redmi Note 5 Pro in terms of power by sporting a 5,000mAh battery as compared to the 4000mAh one on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The phone also comes with Motorola’s TurboCharging technology enabled by a 15W fast charger. The technology will allow the phone to go on for six hours with only 15 minutes of charging.
Like other Motorola phones, the One Power is going to come with stock Android experience with Android One certification meaning that it will be eligible to receive the latest Android security patches and new Android updates very quickly. Although the phone boots Android 8.1 Oreo right now, it will soon receive the Android 9 Pie update. The phone is also going to be free of all bloatware.
Motorola One Power Additional Features
Unlike the Redmi Note 5 Pro which comes with a micro USB port, the Motorola One Power will come with a modern USB Type-C port. There are also other connectivity options like 3.5 mm audio jack, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, and a fast dual-band WiFi.
Motorola One Power Expected Pricing
Going by the current scenario of Motorola, the Motorola One Power is expected to be priced around Rs 25,000, which will make the expensive Snapdragon 636 SoC device in India.
