Users of unlocked Moto Z handsets that were sold directly by Motorola have been waiting for Android Nougat since mid-November when those having the Verizon Wireless variant received the new firmware. While their wait is not over yet, we now have an official confirmation of Nougat's release for the unlocked Moto Z.

"Motorola has confirmed to us that Nougat will be rolling out to the unlocked Moto Z in February," reveals Android Central. Unfortunately, "the spokesperson neglected to say when in the shorter month it would arrive" but at least added that both the Verizon and unlocked Moto Z Play handsets are scheduled to receive Android 7.0 Nougat in March.

Unlocked handsets usually receive the updates first, since there is less testing needed. In this case, the Verizon variant arrived in July, while the unlocked Moto Z became available at the end of September. Due to this fact, they are on different software paths, with separate teams working on them - the unlocked version is optimized for both T-Mobile and AT&T.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
