After halting the Android Nougat OS roll out for Moto Z Play, Lenovo-owned Moto (formerly known as Motorola) has deferred the software release to several Moto X variants by close to three months.

Moto Germany (via Twitter) said the company has postponed the Android Nougat release for Moto X series till May 2017. The company has not mentioned the reason behind the delay, but it is believed that Moto has encountered bugs during the software testing, probably the same ones detected in the Moto Z Play, which eventually led to abrupt stoppage of update roll out in Germany.
