Motorola’s midrange notched Motorola One and Motorola One Power phones are starting to get Android 9.0 Pie updates, according to Android Police.
The Motorola One launched in Europe, Latin America, and Asia back in October, and it just went on sale in the United States earlier this month for $399. It features a 5.9-inch HD display with a distinctly iPhone X-style notch (although there’s no Face ID-esque unlocking), paired with a Snapdragon 625 processor. The One Power is a little bigger and more powerful, with a larger battery, 6.2-inch screen, and Snapdragon 636 chipset, but it’s exclusive to India.
Motorola had actually promised the 9.0 Pie update at IFA when it announced the two devices, so this isn’t entirely unexpected, but it’s nice to see that the company has been relatively swift in making sure the phones are updated. Both phones are also part of Google’s Android One program, which promises at least two OS updates. So if all goes well, the devices should be getting an Android Q update next year, too.
