Here’s all the Motorola phones set to get Android 7.0 Nougat


The Moto phones have a long history of awful update support. Seeing a new version of Android on a Moto phone is almost a rare citing. But today, Lenovo revealed a whole host of devices that will be getting the bump to Android 7.0 Nougat.

Find out if your Motorola device is on the list after the break.

Here’s the full list of phones Lenovo says will be getting Android Nougat:

  • 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

Things seem to be looking up for Moto owners in this regard. Soon enough, they’ll be getting a fresh new version of Android on their phone. Moto X Pure Edition owners were feeling left in the dust, particularly because Lenovo has only rolled out a single update for the phone since February. It’s severely behind on security patches, let alone an all-new Android version.


But, things are looking up–Lenovo’s list shows the Moto X Pure Edition as one of the phones to get Android Nougat. They’re saying the update will be rolling out to the Moto Z and Moto G4 in Q4, but provided no concrete dates. There isn’t even a timeline for the other phones.

In other words, we’re going to be waiting a long time before we see the new Android version on many of these phones.
