The long wait for the Android 7.0 Nougat seems to be over as smartphone owners are gearing to install it on their devices. One company that has moved to the front queue is Lenovo-owned Motorola, having released the last Android version to its devices at an early stage.
The phone maker has released an extended list of phones that will be getting the update and it can be seen below:
- Moto G 4th Gen
- Moto G Plus 4th Gen
- 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
- Moto Z-Droid
- Moto Z Force Droid
- Moto Z Play
- Moto Z Play Droid
- Nexus 6
There are notable omissions such as the Moto E3 Power released last month, and other E-series coupled with the 3rd Gen Moto G. The Android 7.0 rollout will start from Moto Z to Moto G4 and the rest to follow, and exception to the Nexus 6 as it is already updated.
Motorola fans should rest assured as the company still have every intention of delivering fast and timely updates to its users. Motorola phones run nearly stock Android, so this should be a fast and painless software update.
The Motorola Android 7.0 update will bring improved performance, better battery life with “Doze” features, split-screen multitasking, the recent apps button works like ALT+TAB and switches between the last used apps, and much more.
Google has over 50 big changes in Android Nougat like faster app installs, which are also smaller, a new JIT compiler, improved graphics and performance with the Vulkan API, revamped notifications with a quick reply from the pulldown bar, customizable quick setting tiles and so much more.
While we don’t have an actual release date and time, most likely owners can expect it to arrive before the end of the year. Some of the updates mention Q4 for a release time-frame, but that’s all we know right now.
