Android 7.0 Nougat is Not Yet Official for Lenovo’s Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus

Android Nougat for Moto G4 Plus

With just two months old, Android 7.0 Nougat is the latest dessert from Google and as it is, everyone is eager to have the OS installed on their phones.

Currently, only those using Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X alongside a series of other Google-owned devices, including tablets, can access this OS. As for the rest of the Android fraternity, the wait still goes on.

A couple of days ago we revealed that Android 7.0 Nougat was already rolling out to Moto G4 Plus users. Even though the post was very clear that this update is only coming out as a soak test and is currently specific to Brazil, some people in other areas including Asia are asking if the OS is ready for their Moto G4 and G4 Plus units.

In a bid to confirm the current status of the Nougat update on the Moto G4 Plus, one concerned user asked Moto India if the update was indeed ready. In response, the tech giant was clear that the update is not yet ready for this device and when it is, an OTA notification will be sent to all compatible devices.

One thing you need to understand here is that the version of Android 7.0 Nougat released in Brazil is meant for beta testing purposes, determining whether it can work perfectly with the device. This is nothing near the full update, which should come as an OTA. Even though Motorola had previously hinted at a Q4 2016 release for the Moto G4 Plus Nougat update, there is no word on the exact day.

Despite everything, some XDA Developers’ members have already gotten their hands on the Android 7.0 Nougat OTA files for the Moto G4 Plus and apparently, it is working perfectly on this phone. As for the standard Moto G4, it works, but there are some issues with Wi-Fi, among other important things.
