Motorola One Power Gets Android 10 Stable Update Along with December Security Patch


Motorola has started rolling out Android 10 stable update to the One Power in India. The brand revealed the rollout information on its device support page for the country. In addition to the brand’s announcement, users of One Power have also started reporting the arrival of the new firmware on various social media platforms and forums.

The updated software version is QPT30.61-18. While the update size is unknown at the moment, you can expect it to be between 500MB and 700MB. Motorola says that the update is being rolled out in stages, so it might take some time to reach all users. Also worth mentioning is that users who enrolled in the brand’s beta program, are also receiving the Android 10 stable update.

Apart from the upgrade to the Android 10 OS, the update brings the Android security patch for December 2019. It also packs bug fixes and stability improvements. That’s all the changelog reveals. However, user reports suggest that the update brings an option to hide the notch, black theme, refreshed ‘About Phone’ page. The update also seems to change Dolby Audio to Motorola Audio.

The Motorola One Power was launched with the Android 8 operating system. It later received the Android 9 Pie. And now, it is getting the Android 10 OS. With the rollout of the latest update, the device will have received two major OS upgrades. Not many manufacturers offer more than one major OS upgrade to their smartphones, especially to entry-level and mid-range handsets.

When we reviewed the One Power back in 2018, we found that it came ahead of all of its competitors. Even by today’s standards, the One Power has decent hardware. Unfortunately, that was the only impressive smartphone Motorola has launched in the Indian market in the last couple of years. Hopefully, the Motorola One Hyper, which is expected to launch in India soon, will be another success story for the brand, if it prices the handset competitively.
