Google has released the first Android N developer preview in March and the fifth DP was dropped in July. Meanwhile, the company has unveiled the name of its upcoming operating system, which is Nougat, and users all over the world are pretty excited about its new features. The new OS will make its official debut this fall, when the new Nexus Sailfish and Marlin will be released, then it will roll out to the devices created by Google’s OEMs. Motorola is one of Google’s partners and it’s prioritized when a new Android update is launched. So, when is Nougat coming to its Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto G4 Plus, Moto Z, Moto G4 and Moto Z Force?
Google hasn’t confirmed the release date of Android 7.0 Nougat, but we believe that it will show up earlier than Lollipop, which was unveiled in October 2015. Currently, the developers are working on fixing all bugs and improving the stability of Nougat and most likely, the operating system will be ready by the end of the summer. This means that before the end of 2016, the update will roll out to the Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto G4 Plus, Moto Z, Moto G4 and Moto Z Force.
However, Motorola hasn’t specified if Nougat will be available for the following models: Moto E (second generation) 4G, Moto X Force, Moto G Turbo, Maxx 2, DROID Turbo, Moto Turbo, Moto Maxx, Moto X Pure Edition, Moto X (second generation), Moto G (third generation), Moto E (2015), Moto G (third generation) and Moto G Turbo.
As for the Android 7.0 N, it will come with new emojis, improved file browser, better Java 8 language support, bundled notifications, Instant Apps, Screen Zoom, Google Assistant, direct reply notifications, Seamless updates, VR interface, multi-window and many other new features.
Digital Trends has reported that LG has launched a Preview Program for G5 users in South Korea, but only the first 2,000 applicants will be accepted to test out Android 7.0 N before it will be officially released.
