Motorola One Benchmarked With Android 8.1, Specs Revealed

A device identified only as the "Motorola One" appeared in the database of smartphone benchmarking tool Geekbench earlier today, with its moniker pointing to one of the Lenovo-owned company's first notch-equipped handsets that AndroidHeadlines exclusively revealed earlier this summer. The listing that can be seen below is largely in line with previous rumors about the device, suggesting the handset will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and offer 4GB of RAM.

The motherboard of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 is also mentioned as being part of the package, indicating that the Motorola One will likely be seeking to compete in the lower mid-range segment of the smartphone market. The chip in question has already been implemented in a wide variety of devices over the last couple of the years, finding its way inside the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Y2, Mi A1, Vivo V9, and the ASUS ZenFone 3. Motorola itself already commercialized the same silicon with the Moto G5 and Moto G5s Plus. With the base frequency of the Snapdragon 625 powering the Motorola One sitting at just over 2GHz, it doesn't appear that the handset maker made any significant changes to the implementation used by the Moto G5 line.

The newly sighted benchmark listing doesn't reveal any other details about the handset, though previous reports and a high-resolution leak that can be seen above already detailed the Motorola One on a number of fronts. Its very name suggests Motorola is now looking to at least partially move away from the Moto brand, whereas the overall look of the handset is similar to that of the Moto P30 introduced yesterday in China, albeit with slightly different rear camera placement. 64GB of storage space is also expected to be part of the package, together with an 8-megapixel front camera and a 12-megapixel rear module supported by another 5-megapixel unit. The Motorola One is expected to debut alongside similar-looking Motorola One Power later this year in white, black, and possibly even more color options.
