Over the last few years, Motorola has struggled to keep up with the big hitters in the industry, even in the software department. Since being taken over by Lenovo, software updates have slowed down, with many devices forced to wait for months to run the latest security patches.
Thankfully, the company seems to have taken the issue at hand seriously and has been pushing more and more Android One devices. Last month, Motorola added One Action to the evergrowing list, and in this section, we’ll let you know exactly how it’s faring. From the highly-anticipated Android 10 update to “boring” monthly security releases, this piece caters to all your Motorola One Action update queries. Let’s get to it.

Will Motorola One Action get Android 10 update?
As mentioned earlier, Motorola One Action is part of the Android One program, which guarantees major Android OS updates for two years. Launched in August, Motorola One Action came with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, meaning it is guaranteed to get Android 10 and even Android 11 (if Google doesn’t change the name).
When will Motorola One get Android 10?
- Android 10 could be out in November/December 2019
It has been established that Motorola One Action would indeed be upgraded to Android 10, but there’s still room for speculation regarding its release date. Motorola/Google hasn’t given us a tentative release date for Android One devices, so, our best bet right now is to speculate based on last year’s data.
In 2018, Google officially unveiled Android 9.0 Pie for its Pixel lineup in August. For Android One devices, the highly-anticipated update landed around three months later, in November. This year, Android 10 was officially launched on September 3rd, so, we could see the update on Motorola One Action within the second week of December.
What’s new in Android 10?
Android One devices run a pristine version of Android, without OEM-induced — often unnecessary — modifications. So, expect to see almost all of Android 10’s standout features included in the bundle. System-wide dark theme, improved Gestures Navigation, superfast Sharing Menu, Live Caption, Notification Bubbles, better Permissions management, Accent Colors and Themes, and more Android 10 goodness — prepare for an exciting transition.
