Android 7.0 Nougat for the Moto X Pure Edition is rolling out today

Lenovo just revealed that today is the day the Moto X Pure Edition gets a long-awaited software update.

It’s finally happening. Lenovo’s 2015 flagship is getting Android 7.0 Nougat. It’ll give the Moto X Pure Edition things like multi-window support, an enhanced Doze mode, directly reply from notifications, and more. We compiled a full list of features from Nougat when the software update debuted in 2016.

Talk Android exclusively reported in January that this software update would arrive by June. However, Lenovo seemingly realized owners of the Moto X Pure Edition were getting very angry and losing faith in the brand. So, a couple weeks ago, it commenced a soak test for Nougat on this phone. And now it’s showtime.

While we’re not seeing the software update live on our in-house Moto X Pure Edition, Lenovo is expected to slowly-but-surely get Nougat out to everyone over the coming days and maybe even weeks.

    Lenovo’s 2015 flagship?! I don’t think so! To the best of my knowledge the Moto X Style/Pure Edition was a 2015 Motorola flagship! I don’t accept it was Lenovo’s, there is nothing on either the device itself or it’s packaging that indicates that. Lenovo and it’s brand or logo is not present at all, nor is Lenovo mentioned in any of the paperwork that came with the device. This smartphone along with the Moto X Play and Moto X Force, and possibly the 2015 Moto G & Moto E are the last of the true Motorola phones. The sale of Motorola by Google to Lenovo had not long gone through, and Motorola would of had these devices already planned and in production. Lenovo might claim them now because they own Motorola, but these devices are more Motorola than they are Lenovo, unlike the current devices being sold under the Moto brand, those are definitely Lenovo.
