android nougatThe problem with Android phones is that despite many of them being released after the latest build of Android has been made available, they tend to come with the previous version installed. This means that users will still have to wait for the update to find its way to their device, which can be frustrating as sometimes this can take a while.

That being said, this year we’re starting to see a change with handsets like the LG V20 and HTC Bolt being some of the first non-Pixel/Nexus devices with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. However it looks like Motorola could soon be adding their name to the list because according to a tweet by Roland Quandt (via PhoneArena), Motorola has a device in the works codenamed “Cedric” that will come with Nougat preinstalled.

According to Quandt’s tweet, the model numbers for the phone are XT1670, XT1671, XT1675, and XT1676. It will come with 2GB of RAM and 16/32GB storage options. We’re also looking at a 2,800mAh battery. These definitely do not sound like high-end specs, so we’re not sure what kind of phone or which lineup “Cedric” belongs to.

This is not the first time that Cedric has been mentioned. It has been sighted at the FCC as well, so we know that it does exist. In any case take it with a grain of salt, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information.
