Motorola One Power With iPhone X Like Notch Leaked
The notch seems to be everywhere in all kinds of shape these days. The Essential Ph-1 cyborg eye-looking notch to the wide iPhone X notch, the smartphone industry has definitely embraced this trend. Lenovo-owned Motorola appears to be the latest smartphone maker to jump on the bandwagon with a completely new series of smartphones. A new leaked image reveals the design of the Motorola One Power which sports an iPhone X-like notch on the display.
The image leaked by Android Headlines shows the front and back of the device. It is fair to say that the design is nothing new and we have already seen a number of Android devices adopt the vertical placement of the dual-camera setup, similar to the iPhone X. The fingerprint sensor appears to be housed inside the “Moto” logo.
The front of the smartphone is where the headline-grabbing feature lies. The device will have a wide notch (wider than the likes of OnePlus 6, Honor 10) which looks very similar to the iPhone X. Whether a wide notch means there will be a Face ID-like security system is anybody’s guess as of now. The chin, unlike the iPhone X, is very prominent and houses the “Motorola” branding. The company has brought back its classic branding with its 2018 lineup of smartphones.
As many would have guessed it by now, the name of the smartphone suggests that it’ll be an Android One device. The Motorola One Power could be the first Android One smartphone with a notch. This should not be an issue in terms of app compatibility since Google has provided support for the notch in the developer’s preview of Android P.
There is also a high probability of this being a repackaged Moto X5. Long before the launch of the Moto G6 series, a series of leaks revealed the design of the upcoming Moto X5 with a similar notch. There is possibility that Motorola will rebrand the Moto X5 as the Motorola One Power to market it as an Android One smartphone.
The report does not mention any details about the alleged specifications of the device. Neither does it mention any details about the launch event. It is possible the Motorola One Power will be unveiled after the Moto Z3 Play will launch in early-June. We will keep you updated with all there is to know about the new Motorola smartphone.
