Now it seems Google is joining hands with Motorola to bring it's devices in the Android One platform. And made the Mi A1 Android One device which is a rebranded MI 5x running stock Android, instead of MIUI.
The phone, initially to be launched in the U.S., marks Lenovo to be the first company to come with Android One in the country.
The only difference should be in terms of the software update, wherein the Android One Moto X4 will be receiving faster Android updates. And considering the specifications, the Moto X4 Android One edition is also expected to have the same specifications as the original model. Infamous tipster and leaker Evan Blass posted the render of the back side of the device.
Moto X4 features a 5.2-inch LTPS LCD display with 1080p resolution protected by 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3. For this, the company has reportedly picked none other than the recently-introduced Moto X4 smartphone. Next, you'll probably spot the dual rear-facing camera which has one lens with the normal angle and the other is a wide-angle lens. In its place is a bare-bones Android experience, complete with Google services and a promised Oreo update. Let's wait and see for any related announcement from Motorola, Lenovo, or the Android team. The phone is powered by a 2.2GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor along with Adreno 508GPU. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, GPS, Bluetooth, and infrared. Will the Android One Moto X4 variant have the same internals as a regular Moto X4?
While it is true that Motorola does load some of its apps on the phones it makes, it is also true that these do not pose any significant obstacle to Android users. Further, the report states that the device will be priced somewhere in the range of $200-$300. Along with all of this, it should be pointed out that the Moto X4 comes with a fingerprint reader and the IP68 certificate (it is water-proof) and a dual-SIM slot, which are all praiseworthy and offer good value.
