Motorola has announced that it would start rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat update to Moto Z and Moto Z Force devices this week, ending months of wait for the new operating system.

The announcement comes a few days after the firmware was released to Verizon variants of Moto Z, Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force in the US. However, there is still no words on whether Moto X (3rd Gen), Moto G3 (3rd Gen), Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power will get the new OS.

The Lenovo-owned company has announced that its devices 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 would get the Android 7.0 Nougat update.

However, the company has left out some of its popular devices in the list of eligible handsets to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update, which will certainly disappoint the users. Moto X (3rd Gen) was released in 2014, but it is still eligible for the new OS update as android provides supports for two years. Another device, Moto G3 (3rd Gen), is just a little more than a year old, but Motorola hasn't mentioned it in the list, leaving its users confused and upset.

As if that was not enough, Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power -- released in September -- are also not in the list. It is not known if Motorola will announce another list of devices that will get the new firmware update. If not, it will disappoint the owners of the devices.

Motorola had earlier announced in a blog post that Moto Z and Moto G (4th Gen) devices would get the Android 7.0 Nougat update in the fourth quarter of this year. So, Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play may soon get the firmware update now that a couple of Moto Z variants have received it.
