The lower-end member of the Moto Z family arrived back in September 2016 with Android Marshmallow on board. In the meantime, it also received Android 7.0 Nougat, and now Motorola's support confirms that Android 7.1.1 is headed for it as well.

The 5.5-inch Moto Z Play arrived back in September 2016 and is also known as Moto Z Play Droid in the US. This handset had Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board at launch, but already received Android 7.0 and it looks like Android 7.1.1 is also in the works and should reach it in the coming weeks.

According to a Motorola employee who spoke to a customer about the Android 7.1.1 update, this firmware is set to arrive, but its launch date is not known yet. This is the part of their conversation that should make everything clear:"Yash Goyal: Z play will get 7.1.1? Yash Goyal: ? T Gowthami: Yes, It will get but I am not sure about the date."

During the discussion mentioned above, Motorola's chat agent also reveals that only the Moto G4 Plus currently runs Android 7.1.1. Since many XDA Developers Forum members say Motorola's chat agents often happen to possess inaccurate information, we should wait for an official confirmation of the Android 7.1.1 update for the Moto Z Play smartphone. We will get back to it as soon as that happens, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
