  • Motorola One Power presently runs Android 8.1 Oreo
  • The smartphone to receive Android Pie Beta next month
  • Stable Android Pie update could reach by the end of the year

Motorola One Power that was launched in India earlier this week is set to receive Android Pie in the form of a beta build next month. Lenovo-owned Motorola is reportedly in plans to launch its Android Pie soak test programme for the new affordable smartphone to bring the latest Android experience. Announced at IFA 2018 in Berlin last month, the Motorola One Power runs Android 8.1 Oreo. The handset is a part of Google's Android One programme that is mainly designed to offer timely software update.

Product Manager Abhishek Kumar confirmed to Beebom that Motorola will start taking registrations for the Android Pie soak test for the Motorola One Power by mid-October. Concrete schedule regarding the stable Android Pie update is yet to be revealed. However, it is said that the update should reach users some time by the end of the year. The smartphone is also said to receive frequent security patches over the course of three years.

Motorola has a strong record of delivering major updates to its smartphones. Recently, the company started rolling out Android 8.1 Oreo for the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus in India. The company also brought Android Oreo to the Moto X4 and Moto Z2 Play earlier this month. However, it reportedly restricted the Moto G6 Series to only one major Android update and ditched the Moto E5 lineup from receiving even the next big software version.
