Motorola has put up the list of devices that are eligible to get Android 7.0 Nougat update. The list is long but it unfortunately doesn't include some of the most popular devices like the Moto X (3rd Gen), Moto G3, Moto E3, and Moto E3 Power, disappointing its owners.

The Lenovo-owned company has rolled out Android 7.0 Nougat update to Moto Z and Moto Z Force devices. Verizon variant of the Moto Z, Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force in the US have also received the new OS but it is yet to come to popular handsets like the Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus, Moto G4 Play and others.

However, what has come as the biggest disappointment is the exclusion of the Moto X (3rd Gen), Moto G3, Moto E3, and Moto E3 Power in the list of eligible devices that will get the Android 7.0 Nougat update as they are ideally supposed to receive it.

The Moto X 2nd Generation was released in September 2014, whereas the Moto X 3rd Gen and the Moto G3 was launched in 2015, which means they are eligible for Android 7.0 Nougat update, as android gives support for two years. These handsets have received Android Marshmallow.

Interestingly, the Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power, which were released in September this year, are also not in the list provided by Motorola.

The Lenovo owned company has confirmed that it will release Android 7.0 Nougat update to Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus, Moto G Play (4th Gen), Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto X Force, Droid Turbo 2, Droid Maxx 2, Moto Z, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Play Droid, and Nexus 6.

The next in line for the new firmware update could be the Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play, and it should happen before the end of December. It won't come as a surprise if Motorola comes up with another list of devices eligible for the firmware update.
