What makes Motorola phones so special is the fact that they receive the latest Android updates sooner than several other third-party OEMs. Currently, several Moto smartphone users are waiting for the latest Android 7.0 Nougat release for their phones. And now, Motorola has released a list of eligible phones for the upgrade.

The best way to understand whether or not your Moto smartphone will receive Android 7.0 Nougat is if you purchased it within the past year. But there are certain exceptions to that rule.
