Moto Reveals Which Smartphones Will Get Android 8.0 Oreo, Moto G4 Missing From List
Highlights
  • Moto G4 smartphones were launched in India in May last year
  • The list includes most of the recent handsets from the company
  • Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force Droid made it to the list

Lenovo-owned Moto brand has now released a list of the Moto devices that will receive Android Oreo update and while most recent devices have made the cut, Moto G4 devices, which were launched less than two years ago are found missing. The company has now confirmed the smartphones that will receive the update and says that updates will start rolling out this Fall.

The Moto devices that will receive the Oreo treatment are Moto X4, Moto Z, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z2 Force, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Play Droid, Moto Z2 Play, Moto G5, Moto G5 Plus, Moto G5S, and Moto G5S Plus, the company revealed on its blog post. Then company also directs users to track the status of updates on its customer support page.

As mentioned earlier, the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus smartphones are not scheduled to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update and this is surprising especially because most handsets are usually supported with software updates up to two years by the manufacturers these days.

To recall, Lenovo launched its Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus smartphones last year in May in India. Even though the devices were not flagship offerings from the company, it is slightly disheartening to see that the company will not be upgrading the handsets to Android 8.0 Oreo.

Apart from this, the support page also says, "Motorola software updates for Moto X (1st generation) will no longer be available after December 2017. If you have not already done so, please update as soon as possible."

With the Android 8.0 Oreo update, the company says that users will get faster speeds, longer battery life, split-screen capabilities, smart text selection, improved notifications, autofill framework, and Google Play Protect, which will help you to ensure that none of your apps are compromised.
