Motorola reversal: Moto G4 Plus to get updated to Android 8.0

Posted September 20, 2017

To boil things down, Motorola misled consumers when it launched the Moto G4 phones, especially those who bought it thinking they would get Android 8.0 Oreo in the foreseeable future at the time.

The company wrote in one of its blogs that the Moto G series has been created to get one major Android update in its lifecycle and the moto G4 Plus was no exception. Yes, it's better than nothing and we don't mean to seem completely ungrateful, but those who really care for the Oreo update will likely be more willing to flash the LineageOS Oreo ROM than wait months more for the official update. More recently, Motorola India had also confirmed on Twitter that Moto G4 Plus will be getting Android 8 update.

The post reads - "It's been brought to our attention that there were some errors in our marketing materials around Android O upgrades for moto G4 Plus".

The full list is as follows: Moto Z, Z Droid, Z Force Droid, Z Play, Z Play Droid, Z2 Play, Z2 Force Edition, X4, G5, G5 Plus, G5S and the Moto G5S Plus. All these irregular updates by Motorola may result into losing of customers eventually. It is also one of the few Moto smartphones to come with dual rear cameras. Even if it'll take longer for the G4 Plus to be updated than its siblings, an update is coming and that's a win.

The support page of Motorola will be updated periodically and the Android upgrade will roll out to other users soon.
