As leaked repeatedly, these two are the company's newest Android One contenders, following the footsteps of what is probably the last Moto X phone, the Moto X4.

If you are after overall performance, the Xiaomi Mi A2 is the best out of the lot. The One Power, on the other hand, comes with a slightly larger 6.2-inch full-HD+ display with a notch, and 19:9 aspect ratio. The two new devices will have Google Lens integrated in the camera, but more importantly, they come with a promise of "two updates to the latest Android OS" (which means Pie and Q, since they ship with Oreo) and three years of monthly security patches. As some have guessed, it is closely related to the Motorola P30 recently announced in China.

This also isn't Motorola's first iPhone X clone, the company launched a phone earlier this month exclusively for its Chinese customers that is a complete rip off of the iPhone X. But the Motorola One and Motorola One Power actually do look like really good smartphones. The Motorola One Power is an India-exclusive device, and will be priced around Rs 16,000, whereas the Motorola One will be priced around Rs 14,000. The cameras are also improved with the rear shooters being 16MP + 5MP while the selfie camera is 12MP. The Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Motorola One Power, both have a glass and aluminium construction, while the Mi A2 sticks to only aluminium.

To keep things ticking, the Motorola One comes with a 3,000mAh battery, whereas the One Power comes with 5,000mAh battery.

Now, Motorola One Power, as per the specifications shared by Motorola, is bigger, more powerful than Motorola One.

While the Motorola One Power will be launched in India.

For imaging, there is a dual rear camera module with a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor with f/2.0 and f/2.4 aperture respectively.

You get a 5.9-inch display, Snapdragon 625 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, microSD slot, dual rear cameras, Android 8.1 Oreo and a 3,000mAh battery.

In a blog post, the company states that Motorola One series will be the first one to receive Android Pie, joining the Android One device queue which will be receiving the update later this fall. Memory wise, it packs 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which is expandable up to 128GB with microSD. There is an 8MP front-facing camera. The Motorola One will be made available in the coming months in Europe, Latin America, and Asia and will be priced at €299 or around $349 Dollars.
