Motorola One Power Specifications Revealed By 3C Certification Listing
Lenovo-owned Motorola has had an eventful past couple of months. The company recently launched the Moto G6 and G6 Play in India and is scheduled to launch the Moto Z3 Play in Brazil today. One smartphone that has come out of the blue has been the Motorola One Power. Apart from a design different from other Moto devices, the nomenclature is also different. The smartphone has now passed through 3C Certification, giving us a bit more information about the soon to be launched device.
So far, we do not have an extensive list of leaks about this device. Unfortunately, the 3C Certification listing doesn’t tell us a lot either about the smartphone. The listing mentions that the device will carry the model number XT1942-1. Apart from the model number, the listing reveals the supported charging speeds, 5V/3A, 9V/2A and 12V/1.5A. The maximum 18W output is supported, confirming the presence of Qualcomm QuickCharge.
The name of the smartphone suggests that it is an Android One smartphone. Motorola has been known for keeping the software on its smartphones close to stock. The company even launched an Android One version of the Moto X4. Hence, there is 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. If true, the Motorola One Power could be the first Android One smartphone with a notch.
The leaked images and renders reveal that the Motorola One Power will have a wide notch like the iPhone X. So far, we have seen Android smartphone makers go for a very thin notch, like the OnePlus 6 and Huawei P20 Pro. The recently launched Mi 8 has a wider notch but, that is mainly because it has 3D facial recognition. It is highly unlikely that the Motorola One Power will feature any sort of 3D Face Unlock feature. This notch could just be a design decision more than anything else.
It appears that Motorola will plan a different launch event for the Motorola One Power instead of unveiling with the Z3 Play. More details to follow.
