The Motorola One is coming to the United States this week, which is huge news for people looking for a new Android phone. You might have heard about the Motorola One before, as it launched internationally a few months ago. There are a couple catches to the release of this phone in the United States though, such as it will be an exclusive item to Best Buy. If you are looking for a new Android smartphone this year, keep reading to learn more about the release of the Motorola One in America.
Motorola One Hits the American Market November 9
The biggest news is that on November 9, you will be able to purchase the Motorola One online through Best Buy if you live in the United States. This phone will be available to everyone within the United States on November 9, but that date is for the online-only release. If you would like to purchase the Motorola One in the actual Best Buy store itself, you will have to wait until November 11. The purchase price for this smartphone will be $399, which is not really that bad.
Even better news is that the Motorola One is a GSM-unlocked smartphone. This means that it will work on both T-Mobile and AT&T, although it will not work on Sprint or Verizon. If you check out the pictures of this smartphone, you will see it looks like the iPhone X in terms of design and appearance. There is a 5.9-inch display with a notch at the top. It runs in 720×1520 pixels and there is the Motorola stamp on the bottom. You will find that most of the other specifications of the Motorola One are similar to other mid-range Android devices.
Motorola One Device Specifications Detailed
So you will have a notched-screen on this device, like there is on the iPhone X. Beyond that, you will get 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. The processor is a Qualcomm 625 and the battery itself is a 3,000mAh. You will have an 8MP selfie camera and a 13MP regular camera. There is also nano-coating on this smartphone, which will protect the device against water damage. This nano-coating will help keep your phone safe in the event of a spill or if it is outside in the rain.
You will also notice that with the Motorola One, you will have a headphone jack, which is really nice to still have on smartphones. The only thing you will not be getting with the $399 price tag is a wireless charge ability. That is not something you will find on a mid-range device like this one, but for most people that is not really a deal-breaker. Other details you should know about this device is that it runs on Android One. Android One means you will get consistent and regular Android updates, which is definitely a good feature.
Motorola One Android Smartphone Comes with Android 8.1 Oreo
You will also love how the Motorola One smartphone comes loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo. This is one of the newest Android operating systems to be released. Android Pie will also be coming to this device in the future. This means that you will be able to update to the newest operating system within a matter of weeks. Eventually, this smartphone will also get the upcoming Android Q, although that operating system is still in development.
One thing we are disappointed in right now is that the Motorola One Power does not have a release for the United States. We have not been told about this and Motorola has not made an announcement even saying this bigger device will be coming to America. At least we will get the Motorola One itself, although we hope the Power comes too at some point.
