Starting today, Motorola has started rolling out an update to take devices up to Android 8.0 Oreo. Eight devices will join the ranks with the latest version of the Android operating system, including some devices that were released in 2016. The Moto X4, which already had Android Oreo available, is getting a small update as part of this week’s roll out.
The devices that will be getting updated include:
Along with those devices, the Moto X4 is getting the update with some additional camera improvements after Motorola rolled out that handset’s update to Android Oreo about two weeks ago.
The Motorola update for these devices includes the usual assortment of Android Oreo goodies. Motorola also packed in some improvements to system storage to reduce the amount used by the operating system by up to 2GB, an update to the December security patch level from Google, and some non-specific stability improvements. The update weighs in at 1.1GB according to reports, so you will definitely want to be on WiFi to grab this one.
At this time, it appears the update will roll out to devices on all carriers although it is not clear whether there are any geographical restrictions. The update will start hitting devices today, but as a staged roll out it may take a few days before it is available for any specific device.
