After Xiaomi, It's Motorola's Turn To Partner Google For An Android One Device


We recently had Xiaomi release it's first Android One device - the Mi A1 - and now it appears as if Motorola is treading the same path and will release it's first Android One device soon. This leak comes courtesy of Evan Blass, better known as @evleaks. And owing to the accuracy of leaks done by Blass in the past, it's likely that Motorola is working on an Android One device.


The Mi A1 is a rebranded Mi 5X with stock Android on top of it instead of Xiaomi's native skin of MIUI. The back of the render leaked by Blass is similar to that of the recently announced Moto X4. Motorola's UI closely resembles stock Android and only has a few touches (Motorola's in-house apps, a couple of extra settings) to top it off. It would therefore be interesting to see how Motorola differentiates the X4 from its Android One variant. The Moto X4 is expected to hit the markets in September and Motorola just might launch the device as an Android One in some markets. It still remains to be seen how Motorola goes about this. To remind you, the X4 didn't feature the Android One branding when it was showcased at IFA 2017.

Google's Global Director of Android Partner Programs had said at the time of the Mi A1's launch that the Android One devices will no longer be restricted to low segment and will be available in higher price segments as well. The Moto X4 priced at €399 (approx $450) will take on the likes of OnePlus 5 with the Android One branding. The Moto X4 features a 5.2" Full HD display, 3/4GB RAM, IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, Snapdragon 630, dual rear cameras (12MP 8MP wide angle lens) and 16MP selfie shooter with flash, 32/64GB internal storage with support for microSD, Nougat 7.1.1 and a 3000mAh battery.
