Motorola One Power, the adequately-spec'd Android One phone, leaks once again

Motorola One Power, the adequately-spec'd Android One phone, leaks once again
You might have caught a snippet of a certain Motorola One Power device, which would be part of the Android One initiative. This isn't Motorola's first device to take part in Google's stock Android program - last year's Moto X4 was the first one to do so. Yet, the Motorola One Power is already shaping up to be a neat successor.

A new leak originating from TechieNize corroborates the specs we've been hearing for a while now. In particular, the upcoming Motorola One Power will boast a notched 6.2" 1080p display with a resolution of 1080 by 2280 pixels. Right beneath it, if you knew exactly where to looks, you'd likely find a power-efficient yet still decently-powerful Snapdragon 636, 4GB of RAM, and a whole lot of 64GB of storage. 

At the front, we'd likely witness an 8MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture, but the rear camera setup is definitely much more interesting. As per the new leak, the main camera setup will consist of a 12MP + 5MP combo, with f/1.8 and f/2.0 apertures, respectively. 

Battery life devotees will be glad to know that a rather sizeable 3,780mAh battery.

Finally, and most importantly, the Motorola One Power will boast Android 8.1. Of course, it will most likely be as stock as it gets, but we wouldn't be surprised if Motorola throws in an app or two of its own design.

Although there's still nothing specific on pricing, availability, and release date. Yet, a US and European release are extremely likely. 

Now, provided it's priced adequately, Motorola could really be onto something here...

why such a big notch... it's not like its harnessing some depth sensing equipment?

Sadly enough, trends are to be followed.

It doesn't matter what sensors you have up top. It's about screen bragging rights. Look at the iPhone X's useless tiny piece of screen on either side, that space on either side is so small that Apple has to force it's developers to add support for that notch into their apps. Otherwise app do not function correctly. That's not the case with any Android device that has a notch, that we have seen.

You say “force developers” like its a bad thing. Apple should be praised for having standards that need to be enforced, or their App Store turns into a ghetto like the play store.

I get why Apple used the notch design but if other phone manufacturers aren’t useing face recognition as a priority then why do they keep using that same screen design? I hope someone makes a triangle phone just to see who’s dumb enough to copy it.

Is for the edge to edge screen design... not that much for the facial recognition

Do you seriously think that that Face ID hardware cannot put into a phone without a notch? Apple's excuse is not any better than other OEMs. BTW I'm not a notch hater.

I wish that Motorola would come up with an app or a process to back up the phone to the cloud like the iPhone. Android's backup is quite bad; it doesn't back up all your apps, only some of them and doesn't even backup all the data. LG, Samsung, Huawei, etc have their own backup processes. Motorola, or better yet, Google, need to come up with something....

Moto just please don't remove anything like 3.5mm jack or sd cards.

At 6.2-inches, this #AndroidOne is looking to be my next device.
