We have posted a report on Sony handsets which will be getting Android 8.0 Oreo update last month. A few days ago HMD has shared their plans for the Oreo upgrade and guaranteed that all Nokia-branded Android handsets such as Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8 will receive the new Oreo 8 .0 upgrade. Now it’s Moto’s turn to follow the same. Motorola shared on their support website and on official blog revealing which of its phones will be updated to Android Oreo. However, they didn’t give any hint on time frame when the listed handsets will get the chance to taste Oreo.
Motorola devices that will get the update to Android Oreo 8.0 is listed below:
- Moto G5S Plus (unlocked)
- Moto G5S (unlocked)
- Moto G5 Plus (unlocked)
- Moto G5 (unlocked)
- Moto Z2 Force (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon)
- Moto Z2 Play (Verizon, unlocked)
- Moto Z Force DROID (Verizon)
- Moto Z (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, unlocked)
- Moto Z Play (Verizon, unlocked)
- Moto X4
Due to the fact that this was announced by Motorola US, there remains a possibility that the update will be available only for those devices that have been offered officially in the United States. Currently, we have no confirmed reports whether this update will be made available for listed devices sold in other countries. There still remains a situation, If one of the service providers says no then some of these handsets will never get the latest Android update as the majority of the devices in the list quoted “pending partner support”.
Motorola was a US based multinational firm founded way back in the year 1928. Because of financial losses the firm was split into two separate public enterprises namely Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility. Chinese technology firm Lenovo acquired Motorola Mobility in the year 2014. Google sustained the right of possessing the majority of the Motorola Mobility patent and financial assets, which include live patent applications and invention disclosures.
