The Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid were among the first phones to be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat back in November 2016, but the wait for the new Android 7.1.1 Nougat is still on.
According to a new listing on GFXBench benchmarking website, it appears that this long wait will soon come to an end. Apparently, the Moto Z has been listed with Android 7.1.1 Nougat running the show, which could imply that Motorola is currently testing the new OS for this flagship. While the GFXBench listing doesn’t say that this is indeed the current Motorola flagship, the listed specs do confirm that this is the phone in question.
At the time of this writing, only the Google Pixel phones, 2015’s Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X and some Nexus 6 users have received the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. No other non-Google device has received the update and if the latest listing is anything to go by, the Lenovo-owned brand could also be among the first, if not the first, to roll out the new version 7.1.1 Nougat its latest flagship.
The list shows off a device that is powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat Motorola Edition. The device has a screen size of 5.5 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Under the hood, this handset ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC that is clocked at a speed of 2.1GHz and is paired with an Adreno 530 GPU alongside a RAM of 4GB. The storage is 64GB and the cameras come with 13MP and 5MP lenses on the back and front, respectively.
These are the same specs you find on the Moto Z, although the phone also comes with a 32GB storage variant. To keep the lights on, the flagship has a 2600mAh battery unit that is supported by fast charging technology. Motorola is also expected to avail the same update to the rugged Moto Z Force as well as the low-end Moto Z Play, but like their counterpart, the official release date of this OS is not known at the moment.
