Motorola has been receiving some hate because the company has yet to roll out Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system to their Moto lineup. Fans have been urging Motorola to launch the update for a while now but Motorola has yet to respond with an official date, but luckily for us some additional information has been leaked.
A Moto device has just received its Wi-Fi certification and it’s known as XT1635-02 and that build number is widely believed to be Moto Z Play.
It’s a common fact by now that in order to be eligible to receive the Nougat update, devices are required to be Wi-Fi approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The leaked information didn’t include any additional information rather than that Moto Z Play is Nougat Wi-Fi approved and that it supports 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequencies.
What’s interesting is that recently Moto Z Play has been spotted on a GFX benchmark test website running on Android 7.1 Nougat and rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat would only be a downgrade. Moto fans are speculating that Motorola will launch the full Nougat package at once, and that’s why the device is being tested on all versions.
The Lenovo owned company has acquired some experience working with the Nougat operating system because Moto G4/Plus, Moto Z and Moto Z Force have already received the update. Looking at Moto Z Play’s specs it’s pretty clear that it’s compatible with the latest software updates especially since it’s powered by the powerful Snapdragon 625 processor which is paired with 3GB of RAM.
Nonetheless, we can expect Motorola to end their testing process and roll out the operating system any day now.
