Motorola may launch an Android One smartphone soon, here is what it looks like

Google is not getting rid of the Android One project anytime soon. The search giant recently teamed up with Xiaomi for the launch of an Android smartphone, the Mi A1. There have been other Android One handsets launched by smaller companies in various countries, so it appears that the offering will continue to grow.

Motorola, the company that once belonged to Google, is expected to join the Android One project very soon. At least that's what the latest picture leaked by Evan Blass suggests. A Motorola smartphone with a dual-camera setup and Android One branding is shown in a press render.

Not much else is known about Motorola's Android One smartphone, but since the US company hasn't been approached by Google to build its next Pixel device, an Android One handset will do just fine.

One thing that's worth pointing out is that the back of the Android One phone leaked by Evan Blass strongly resemblance the recently unveiled Moto X4. Until more details about the phone leak, there's no point in making any guesses, but at least we know Motorola may be on to something.

Android one smartphones are nice and all, but they need to release them in North America as well.

Rumor is the Moto X4 based Android One will be released in North America, and support on Project Fi too Hopefully that's true and its released in other countries like UK, Europe, Aus/NZ

Every phone maker should follow and make an Android One phone. The demand is there ever since the Nexus is died and the Pixel is freakin' expensive.

If more Android One devices are made from well established OEMs and a great majority buys the devices, hopefully the Android version distribution will be better than what it currently is.

EvLeaks aka Evan Blass is probably wrong especially after saying the Pixel's would have the Snapdragon 836. Freaking douchebag he is. He asks people for money for his leaks. Hate this guy.

"He asks people for money for his leaks"... Thats because he PAYS people money for leaks, genius. What did you think, that he's a superspy? A billionaire philanthropist, perhaps?

Here's a solution for you, wait until the actual product is released instead of relying on leaks

s**t changes He is now saying the 836 is being delayed by Qualcomm until early next year (which again another rumor, which may or may not be true and may change with time)

I'm on board if it has sd450 or 625 and is cheap. Judging by the material and design it will not be...

Well, if this turns out to be the rebranded Moto X for Google Fi, then they better up the storage, RAM, and ditch Alexa for Google Assistant, otherwise the Pixel 2 is getting my money.

Some mid-ranger with 4,000+ mAh, & expandable storage would make me super happy.
