Motorola Nougat update: Released for Moto G4 and G4 Plus in India, Moto Z Droid gets soak test in US


Page content:


Update [October 22, 2016]: Motorola has released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for its Moto G4 and G4 Plus in India. The update came only a day after the G4 Plus users in Brazil got the soak test of Nougat update, but the Indian one is official rollout. Also, in US, Moto Z Droid at Verizon is up for the Nougat soak test, so the full and final release shouldn’t be very far really. November 2016 is when we could see Moto Z and Moto G4 sets run Nougat world over.



Update [October 05, 2016]: Apparently, Motorola also has an official announcement to boot, here. Here are all the Motorola sets confirmed to get Nougat update so far. No Moto G3, sorry!

Moto G (4th Gen)
Moto G Plus (4th Gen)
Moto G Play (4th Gen)
Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen)
Moto X Style
Moto X Play
Moto X Force
Droid Turbo 2
Droid Maxx 2
Moto Z

Motorola just updated its software page to confirm the Nougat update for its portfolio of Android phones. And while learning about Moto Z and Moto G4 family sets was not really new — although it’s first official confirmation — it’s good to see Motorola confirm the Android 7.0 Nougat update for Moto X Style, its US variant X Pure, X Play, X Force, Droid Maxx 2, and Droid Turbo 2.

Earlier, we knew it rather unofficially that Motorola will be handing out Nougat to its Moto Z and Moto G4 sets before the end of this year. Note that these are all 2016’s releases, so we were left speculating as to whether and when Motorola plans to release the Nougat update for Moto X Style, known as Moto X Pure in US, and other deserving devices like X Force.

Thankfully, X Style/Pure and X Force have made the cut to Nougat, but Motorola has remained shy of providing us a release date.

Also, now the Moto Z and Moto G4 sets stand confirmed too, as they too are tipped for the Nougat release at Motorola’s own official software update page. In fact, they lead the line.

Though, Motorola hasn’t confirmed the 7.0 update for Moto G3. We still think the 3rd Gen of Moto G will be bestowed with Nougat kindness, but we have to wait until Motorola says it officially.
