Motorola has rolled out Android 7.0 Nougat update to some of its devices, but has disappointed many by leaving out popular handsets like the Moto G4, Moto Z Play, Moto X Style and Moto X Play among others. Now, it appears like the Lenovo-owned company is planning to seed the firmware to the Moto Z Play.
The Moto Z Play with model number XT1635-02 running Android 7.0 Nougat operating system has been certified by WiFi Alliance (WFA), giving a clear hint that its official release is not far off.
Motorola first pushed out Android 7.0 Nougat update to Moto Z, Moto Z Force, Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force, before making it available to Moto G4 Plus. However, it surprised many as the Moto G4, smaller sibling of the Moto G4 Plus, was left out.
The company had earlier assured in a blog post that it would roll out Google's latest firmware to the Moto Z and Moto G4 series in the fourth quarter of this year. So, the Moto Z Play and Moto G4 Plus should get the OS update in the next couple of weeks, that is, before the end of this year.
Other Motorola devices that are eligible for Android 7.0 Nougat update are 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 Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Play Droid, and Nexus 6. The recently released Moto M is also expected to receive the new OS soon.
However, it is not known if the Lenovo-owned company will make the firmware available to the Moto X (2nd Gen), Moto X (3rd Gen), Moto G3, Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power.
