The Motorola Moto Z was launched in June 2016. It was then unveiled in India later in October running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The same year, the company rolled out the Android Nougat update for the smartphone.

As per a thread in a Lenovo site, the Android 8.0 update contains the March security patch and weighs in at around 1.4GB, as reported by The Android Soul. The update is available as an OTA but can also be manually downloaded on your smartphone. The update's software version is OPL27.76-51 and you can go to Settings > About Phone to check for the latest update, whenever it is available.

To recall, Moto Z sports a 5.50-inch display and is powered by 1.8GHz quad-core Snapdragon 820 SoC. It comes with 4GB of RAM and packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 2TB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Motorola Moto Z packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. The handset is powered by a 2600mAh non-removable battery.

Meanwhile, the Android Oreo update brings Background limits, Autofill, Smart text selection, and Picture-in-Picture mode. Similarly, the new update comes with Android Instant App support and fully redesigned emoji set, adaptive icons, and easier installation for unknown apps.
