Lenovo’s embracing of the display notch has been the most controversial so far. After teasing a phone with literally no bezels for weeks, the company unveiled the Z5 that has, you guessed it, a notch. Moto, which is owned by Lenovo, has still remained shy of the notch. But that might be about to change with its upcoming Android One phone, reportedly called Moto One Power.
The Moto One Power was revealed in a series of hands-on photos with a dual camera setup at the back, much like the iPhone X. There’s a Moto Batwing logo with the fingerprint scanner embedded in it and there’s a notch.
In the photos revealed by techinfobit.com, the notch seems to house the front camera, the proximity sensor and the earpiece. The SIM slot is on the upper left side while all the buttons are on the upper right. At the bottom are dual grilled speakers, but as GSMArena noted, the second grill might just be a dummy. Thankfully, the phone has a USB-C port.
The images do not show the alleged Moto One Power powered on. As a result, it could just as well be a dummy unit made using the early schematics and leaked renders. Either way, the phone is definitely a strong indication that Moto is coming out with an Android One device and embracing the display notch full-fledged.
If indeed this is real, the Moto Power One will be the company’s second Android One phone after the Moto X4 (review) last year. Earlier schematics had revealed the phone will have fairly minimal bezels and Moto’s branding on the display chin.
An Android One device will surely help in dealing with the tough times Moto seems to be in. The company recently laid off 200 employees from its Chicago headquarters which includes almost half of its engineering team. So far, all the new Android One devices that we have tested including the Nokia 7 Plus, Mi A1, Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Nokia 6.1, have been robust and quite reliable, which means the upcoming Moto Power One could be just as good and might be able to save Moto from going down under.
