Motorola has previously said that Moto Z, Moto Z Force, Moto Z Play, Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are all getting the Nougat update.
Android testing takes quite some time and phone companies do not release an update unless they are sure that it works properly.
The Moto Z unlocked variant is now available in the United States from Motorola and a few third party retailers like Amazon and Best Buy. Q4 has just begun, so Moto Z and Moto G (4th Gen) users won't have to wait until next year.
Motorola recently announced two new smartphones - the Moto Z and the Moto Z Play - as well as Moto Mods that will enhance the capabilities of the two smartphones. No smartphone from the Moto E series will get the update. However, over time, Google slowly kept adding new phones to get the new OS - Android 7.0 Nougat updates and the latest addition to this line-up is 15 smartphones of Motorola.
Moto Z Play comes with 5.5-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display, 2.0GHz octa-core processor paired up with 3GB of RAM, and houses 3,510mAh battery that also supports TurboPower charging. The owners of the Nexus 6 already received the update at the beginning of this week and now the tablet manufactured by HTC is enjoying the same pampering.
The Moto G (3rd Gen) does not appear on the list and it seems like the smartphone will not receive the update after rumors had previously mentioned that it might. That means Lenovo isn't forgetting about its older devices and hopefully, after the first phase of rolling out the Android 7.0 update, other older phones like the Moto G3 lineup may also receive the update.
With people talking about Google's move with the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones yesterday and the higher than expected price tag, consumers are definitely looking for alternatives.
