Motorola seems to be keeping up with its reputation for rolling out Android software updates more efficiently than most of its competitors. Official reports have surfaced stating that the Lenovo acquired company will launch Nougat 7.0 on the Moto G4 and the Moto Z series in the last quarter of this year. It has also been reported that the beta version is being rolled out in Brazil for Moto G4 Plus Soak testers. The update is 953MB in size.
All of this could possibly mean owners of such devices can expect an OS update within the next few weeks. However, there hasn’t been any statement yet from the manufacturers regarding the official release date. The company did release a statement on making sure of getting upgrades right and ensuring that phone performance remains the best it can be.
Other Motorola devices that are included in the list of units to receive the newer Nougat software are the Moto X series, Motorola Droid Turbo 2, and Motorola Droid Maxx 2. Sadly, mid-range models, such as the Moto E3 Power and Moto E (Gen 3), are not included in the anticipated update. Owners of these phones can only hope that the company will eventually include them.
If you’re device is included in the list, make sure that it is currently running on the latest Marshmallow version so that your unit can transition more smoothly to the newer Nougat OS when the update rolls out. Go to Settings, select About Phone, then check what version you currently have. If it is still Lollipop, upgrade to the most recent available one for your device.
