Moto Z2 Android Pie update
Expected release date: Q1 2019 for Moto Z2 Force; Q2 2019 for Moto Z2 Play
The Motorola Moto Z2 Force was among the first devices to receive Android Oreo, but given that there’s a new kid on the block, the Moto Z3, the 2017 flagship has now become the company’s second priority. In short, we don’t expect to see Android 9.0 Pie arriving on the Moto Z2 Force ahead of the Moto Z3, but we can guarantee that the device will receive the update, probably in Q1 2019.
Like its predecessor, the Moto Z2 Play will receive a second major OS upgrade in Android Pie. However, we are looking at a possible Q2 2019 release date, which is still a long way to go. So far, the Moto Z2 Play has already received an update to Android 8.0 Oreo, the first major OS upgrade but given that the Moto Z3 Play is already among us, the 2017 model will obviously be playing second fiddle to the 2018 model.
