[UPDATED] The Motorola One is coming to the US through Best Buy

The One will be available exclusively at Best Buy with a more budget friendly MSRP of $399USD.

Motorola made an announcement today regarding one of its newest Android One carrying devices: the Motorola One. That announcement? Well, the Motorola One is coming to the United States.

The iPhone X-looking phone comes with a 5.9-inch 720p (720×1520) resolution display. Not only that, but it packs 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (expandable through a microSD slot), and a Qualcomm 625 processor. It’ll also house a 13 MP rear shooter with an 8 MP front facing camera. The water-resistant nano-coating is also there, and you’ll have a 3,000 mAh battery.

UPDATE (11/05/2018 12:40 P.M. ET): We are updating this story to reflect that the moto one is available NOW for pre-sale. You can get your pre-sale order in at Best Buy HERE!

The phone even sports a headphone jack. Unfortunately, you won’t see wireless charging on this phone, though but you’ll also see six hours of extra battery life with a 20-minute charge thanks to Motorola’s TurboPower charging capabilities.

The Motorola One comes with Android One, which means you’ll get a consistent amount of updates. The Lenovo company stated that the Motorola One will ship with Android Oreo 8.1. It’ll then be updated to Android Pie (9.0). It should also get Android Q and is guaranteed to receive security updates for the next three years. Motorola is known for running as close to stock as possible but this device will be running the unmodified version of Android, which is a requirement of the Android One program as well.

The One will be available exclusively at Best Buy. It’ll come in at a more budget friendly price of $399USD. Starting on November 9th, the phone will be available in black on Best Buy’s web site. You’ll be able to pick up the white variant in store starting November 11. It’s a GSM-unlocked phone so you’ll be able to use it on T-Mobile or AT&T, but sadly, not on Sprint or Verizon.
