You would think that Android One phones are usually among the first to get new OS releases, but many Nokia devices and the Xiaomi Mi A3 prove this wrong, as a lot of them still run Android 9 to this day. That's bound to change for the Mi A3, though, as Xiaomi has started to roll out Android 10 to the handset.
The Android One-equipped Motorola One Vision unfortunately never made it to the US, but owners in South America, Europe, India, and other markets can look forward to an update bringing Android 10 to the phone. It's currently rolling out to first people in Brazil, though it probably won't take long until it reaches more locations.
Earlier this month, Google revealed its updated design language for the Android logo ahead of the Android 10 release. In addition to elevating the bugdroid (or at least its head) to the logo itself, new typography for the "android" text was also shown off. As part of today's big push to update the various Android sites, the logos for Android TV, Android Auto, and Android One have all been updated to match those previous changes.
We've been tracking developments with Motorola's Android One phones in the pipeline. One of them is the Motorola One Action, a phone with a 21:9 full HD display with "hole-punched" selfie camera, three rear cameras — including a wide-angle "Action Cam" — a mid-range Samsung Exynos processor, and various memory configurations. We now have better views of the device and our first idea at how much an Action might cost.
After recent leaks, we knew Xiaomi would soon be introducing its latest Android One phone, and now the Mi A3 has been officially unveiled. Its predecessors were pretty well received, so we have high hopes for this one. For just €250 it offers a 48MP sensor as part of a triple camera setup, an in-screen fingerprint scanner, and a 6-inch AMOLED display (Edit: Sadly it's only HD+, 720x1520 — no wonder they didn't emphasize that in the PR) with a waterdrop notch.
Last month, Nokia unveiled the 2.2, a strong contender in the budget smartphone market, thanks to its removable battery, 5.7" display, and Google Assistant button. Unfortunately, the device was only announced for the European and Indian markets, with no expected availability in North America. However, the brand just introduced the phone to the US, where it's selling for $139 starting today.
Xiaomi's first stock Android device was the Mi A1, released back in 2017. It was a very good phone, especially for the low price of ~$230, and the company released a sequel last year. There wasn't much doubt that a Mi A3 was on the way, but now we have the first pictures of the device.
It turns out that the One Visionisn't the only phone with a 21:9 display and an Exynos chipset that Motorola is planning to release; the One Action is also in the cards. The two One-branded phones share many similarities, with the Action appearing to be a lower-end version of the Vision.
The extensivelyleaked Motorola One Vision is official, and it looks like the leaks were dead-on. This Exynos-powered phone sports a super-tall 21:9 display with a hole-punch camera, and it runs Google's Android One build of the OS. You won't be able to buy it in the US, but Motorola will sell it in many other markets.
