Here is good news for Motorola device owners: the smartphone manufacturer is expected to roll out Android 7.0 Nougat update to some of the eligible handsets early like they did with Android Marshmallow. It has now emerged that Motorola Moto Z and Moto G4 series will get the firmware update soon.
Google has released Android 7.0 Nougat update to its eligible devices like the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C and Android One. However, the popular 2013 Nexus 5 will not get the firmware update.
A Motorola spokesperson has revealed that Android 7.0 Nougat update will first come to Moto Z and Moto G4 series in the beginning of the next quarter (Q4), according to DroidLife. The Q4 is just a few days away, so devices like the Moto Z Force, Moto Z, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z Play, and Moto Z Play Droid should get the new firmware as early as October.
Motorola is also expected to seed the Android 7.0 Nougat update to its devices like the X Force, X Play, X Style, Moto G (3rd gen), Moto E (3rd gen), and Moto Droid 2015 series phones eventually. Moto X (2nd Gen) will not get the firmware update as its processor is not compatible with Google's new OS.
Google's Android 7.0 Nougat comes with features like multi-window, direct reply notifications, Extra power efficiency, Google Assistant, VR interface, Seamless updates, Screen Zoom, Clear All, Data saver, Improved file browser, Instant Apps, App switch, bundled notifications, improved Java 8 language support, and new emojis.
