New Motorola RAZR for Verizon confirmed to be a real thing by Bluetooth SIG

What's next from Motorola? As we leave behind the Moto G7 series, we're left in a holding pattern for what might be a foldable phone that will bring up the legacy RAZR name. It's been a month since we last heard anything about the speculative project, but we now have some evidence from the Bluetooth SIG that there is at least a RAZR phone in the works along with a potential Android One phone.

[Update: Carrier restrictions] Motorola announces Call Screen support for Moto G7 and Motorola One phones

The debut of Call Screen on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL late last year was a magical moment. The deluge of robocalls shows no sign of slowing, but Call Screen gives you a way to reclaim a little sanity. The feature was exclusive to Pixels at launch, but now some Motorola phones will have it, too.

[Update: G7 Power too] Motorola releases Pie kernel code for the P30 Note and G6 Plus

Slowly but surely, Android 9 Pie is rolling out to Motorola's lineup of phones. That also means new kernel source packages, which can be used by developers to create custom Pie-based ROMs and recoveries. Motorola has now released two new source packages for two (or possibly three) devices.

Android Pie is now rolling out to the Motorola One and One Power globally

Lenovo announced two new Android One devices in late August 2018: the Motorola One and One Power. The budget smartphones marked the Motorola brand's first Android One handsets outside of the US-only version of the Moto X4. Both are fairly middle-of-the-road Android devices when it comes to hardware, but software support is the real selling point, with promised updates to both Android Pie and Q, along with three years of security patches. Now, the manufacturer is following through on the first major update, with the announcement that Android Pie software is rolling out globally for both Motorola One handsets.

Motorola's iPhone X clone is coming to the United States for $399

Last month, Motorola announced two new Android One devices for international markets — the Moto One and One Power. Both phones look remarkably like the iPhone X, and both have three years of promised security updates. It seemed unlikely that either phone would ever be officially sold in the United States, but Motorola has announced that the regular Moto One will be available from Best Buy on November 9th.

Moto Z3 Play, Galaxy A8 2018, and other devices get official TWRP support

TWRP is by far the best custom recovery for Android devices; it can do everything from flashing ROMs to performing full storage backups. The last time we covered the project, it added official support for the Essential Phone, Nokia 8, and HTC U11 EYEs. More phones have joined the party since then, including the Moto Z3 Play and a handful of budget Samsung devices.

Motorola One Power coming to India on October 5, will cost ₹15,999

Motorola announced a pair of iPhone X clones last month - the One and One Power. As the names might imply, both are running Android One, with three years of promised monthly security patches (and updates to Android Pie and Q). In our hands-on post, Stephen noted that the Motorola One Power was the better of the pair, and now that model is heading to India.

Hands on with the Motorola One and One Power: One of these phones doesn't need to exist

One thing you've got to get used to when attending international trade shows is that you're going to see a lot of interesting phones that just aren't meant for you — sometimes your home market's going to get passed over, and the manufacturer simply has another audience in mind. That's a situation I've been facing at IFA 2018 with the latest batch of Motorola smartphones to debut, as both the Motorola One and Motorola One Power target various global markets — not including the US. Are these handsets worth feeling a little jealous over? I went hands-on with both to find out.

Motorola introduces two Android One devices: Motorola One and One Power

After buying Motorola, Lenovo doesn't seem to know where it wants to go and how it wants to brand things. Currently, it still releases devices under its own Lenovo brand, it has also made countless variants of every Moto E, G, C, M, Z, and X (but Y?), and now it's back to using the full "Motorola" name for its new line-up of Android One devices: the Motorola One and One Power.
