The Moto G4, G4 Plus, X Force, and X Play will all begin receiving Android 7.0 upgrades later this February with the Moto X Style, G4 Play, and Z Play to follow shortly thereafter.

Some smartphone manufacturers like Samsung have already begun rolling out OTA updates for certain models to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat software. Others have been less fortunate including Sony who had to recently delay its planned Android 7.0 rollout due to bugs discovered late in the testing phase. Now Lenovo has made public its plans to update some of its Moto smartphones to the latest version of Android, albeit only a select few.

According to the Chinese manufacturer, the following four Moto smartphones will begin receiving OTA updates for Android 7.0 sometime before the end of February:

Of course, it should be noted that OTA updates happen gradually and in waves, so a good chunk of Moto users will likely not see any update notifications until March or later.

As for the Moto X Style, Moto G4 Play, and Moto Z Play, Lenovo is still planning on rolling out official Android 7.0 updates for these three phones sometime after February but before the start of the second quarter.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
