Android Q update

  • Eligible for Android Q update
  • The rollout could begin in Q1/Q2 2020

Devices in the Moto G series get at least one major Android OS upgrade. With the Motorola Moto G7 Play equipped with Android 9 Pie out of the box, it’s safe to assume that Android Q will be pushed to the device when the time comes.

On matters time, the wait could go all the way to Q1 or Q2 2020 before Android Q arrives.
