Motorola One Power will be Moto’s first phone with a notch
While most OEMs caught on to the notch trend, Motorola was one of the very few who weren’t in a rush to adopt it. But it seems like that things are about to change with the Motorola One Power. The rumoured phone might be Lenovo-owned Motorola’s first phone with a notch. Also, it marks a return of the ‘Motorola’ brand. Since Lenovo took over the brand from Google they adopted Moto by Lenovo in lieu of the Motorola branding.
The notch is not the only major change in terms of design language for the phone as even the camera setup on the back has shifted to the upper-left of the phone in a vertical placement. The new camera placement is very similar to that of the iPhone X or the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. This new design language might be called for, for the new series of the mobile veteran. The bezels on the front get pushed to the edge to increase the amount of screen real estate offered. The Power One turns out to be Motorola’s best phone in terms of screen-to-body ration. Another surprising change is the ‘Motorola’ branding on the bottom chin of the phone.
The Motorola One Power might debut alongside the Moto Z3 Play on June 6.
The Motorola One Power is expected to be an Android One device and the very first Android One to have a notch. This comes directly after the Moto X4 that was the first Android One phone to be announced by Motorola for the United States. Although Motorola has historically made use of software that is mostly vanilla with just some handful tweaks in the form of Moto Actions & Apps here and there, the use of Android One will promise the latest Android updates for the next 2 years and security patches for the next 3 years.
It’s important to mention that the leaked picture of the One Power seems to be very similar to that of the Moto X5 which was leaked back in January. Although following reports suggested that the Moto X5 was scrapped altogether. But still, one can’t be too sure.
The Motorola One Power is expected to be launched in the United States at first and then probably in other countries. There is no word on a launch date or about the pricing of the phone.
