moto-z-play-hands-on_01So we know that Google’s latest build of Android, which is Android 7.0 Nougat, has been out for a while now. Unfortunately the update process is very different compared to iOS where Apple is in control of the entire process. In Android’s case, OEMs will need to update their phones themselves, and in some instances, carriers need to give their approval too.

That being said if you are an owner of any of the Moto Z handsets or the Moto G4, you will be happy to learn that the update should not be too far behind. According to a report from Droid-Life, a Motorola spokesperson has told them that customers can “expect to see Android N on the Moto Z family and Moto G4 beginning in Q4.”

Ultimately this means that you should be able to get your hands on the update by the end of the year. However like we said, some of you guys might see a slight delay due to carrier approval, but for those who own the international and unlocked version of the phone, by the end of 2016 is when you can expect the update.

Granted this means at least 3 months of waiting, but hey, better late than never, right? As for Motorola’s other handsets, Motorola said that they are working to ensure that following the update, performance is still the best it can be, which means that in the event that the update degrades the performance of the phone, then don’t expect Motorola to release it, but either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled.
