Motorola launched the Moto One Power late in September. And being a part of the Android One program, it ran Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. And also said that Android Pie before the end of the year and latest reports suggests that the wait shouldn’t be too long.

The Motorola One Power recently dappled on a popular benchmarking app, Geekbench, running Android 9 Pie. Spotted first by Chinese publication IT Home, the phone  benchmarked on 2 November with the operating system being the only change.

Another thing noticed here that Geekbench says the device is powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor. Which does come across as weird since the One Power powered by a Snapdragon 636 SoC. The clock speed is same as other Snapdragon 636 powered smartphones benchmarked on the website.
