Motorola was ranked as the fastest as far as rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow is concerned, however, more than a month since Android 7.0 Nougat started rolling out, there is still no sign of the update on Moto devices.
Apparently, the only smartphones that have received an OTA update to Android 7.0 Nougat are from the Nexus family. As for the rest, the wait still goes on. Unlike other OEMs that have kept their customers in the dark over which devices will actually be getting the new Nougat update, Motorola has come out with a list of 15 smartphones that will start getting the OS this Q4 2016.
Sony was among the first to come in with an official list of devices that will be receiving Android 7.0 Nougat and later on a roadmap of the same was leaked, indicating that the likes of Xperia XZ and X Performance will start seeing the update this month. In Motorola’s case, the Lenovo-owned company has gone to its official website with a list of phones that includes the latest Moto Z and Moto G4 series.
Those using the Moto X Play and Moto X Pure Edition from 2015 will be receiving this OS, however, entry-level models such as Moto E3 Power and Moto G 2015 are not included on the list. As expected the latest handsets to be released will be first in line to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat treat. These include the Moto G4 series that includes the standard G4, the G4 Plus, and the G4 Play; the Moto Z series that is made of the standard Moto Z, the Moto Z Play Droid, the Moto Z Force Droid, as well as the Moto Z Play.
Other older models like the Motorola Nexus 6, Droid Turbo 2, Droid Maxx 2 and the Moto X (3rd gen) are also part of the update.
