Motorola Starts Testing Android Nougat for Moto G4 Plus in Brazil

Moto G4 Plus

Motorola seem a very close to coming out with the Android Nougat update for the Moto G4 Plus models across the world.

Only recently, the company came out with a list of smartphones that would receive this much awaited android update. While Android Marshmallow focused heavily on improving the battery usage and permission aspects, it was not a major update in terms of user friendliness. This change is quite significantly with the Android Nougat, which now gets features like multi-window support, quick toggles in the notification bar on the first swipe, and the ability to switch between recent apps without having to visit the recent apps menu.

All these changes may sound excellent on a device with a large display and it is exactly the case with the Moto G4 Plus with its 5.5-inch screen. The huge updates made to the fourth generation of the Moto G line-up has been quite well-received. The device now offers full HD resolution even at this price point of around $300. The IPS panels are provided to enhance the viewing angles, while the stock android experience with the Google Now launcher feels snappy and quick.

The performance on the Moto G4 Plus is surprising considering that the phone only has the middle of the range snapdragon 617 processors on-board. The standard variant gets to do with only 2 GB of RAM, but the Plus variant has 3 GB of RAM and this should be more than sufficient for the next few versions of android. There is even a model with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The storage will especially come useful considering that the new update weighs in at a hefty 953 MB. The update is still not available to all the users and only a select few now have access.

Once the final testing work is done, Moto G4 Plus Android Nougat updates will be available across the world. It may not take more than a couple of weeks going with the latest round of developments.

Other aspects of the phone that are designed to take advantage of the new operating systemare the 16-megapixel camera and the fingerprint sensor. For a phone that costs almost half as much as a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, the fingerprint sensor on the Moto G4 Plus is quite surprising with its ability to unlock the phone in less than the time it takes to blink.
