Motorola has just announced a new smartphone for the US market. However, this smartphone is not new for users around the world. This is because Motorola has already launched the smartphone in India and other markets. The smartphone we are talking about is the Motorola One.

The Motorola One comes on top of Android One programme by Google which got a boost two years back with the launch of Xiaomi Mi A1. Since then, Android One smartphones have been on the rise compared to regular smartphones.

The smartphone has been launched for a price of available for $399.99 and is available exclusively from Best Buy.
