Moto E3 Power will not get Android 7.0 anymore

Moto E3 Power Android smartphone will not get Nougat

Although this 5-inch Android handset has only been around since last September, it will not receive the Nougat update. While this MediaTek-powered smartphone remains stuck to Marshmallow, various older Motorola handsets will receive Android 7.0.

Motorola Moto E3 Power is still a bit hot, having arrived back in September 2016. Sadly, it seems that this handset gets no love from Lenovo/Motorola and there will never be a Nougat update for it.

Some time ago, Motorola revealed a rather long list of devices that would be pushed from Marshmallow to Nougat. While the Moto E3 Power was not included in the list back then, its owners concluded that it had to be a mistake and they would eventually get the update. However, being on the market for just a few months seems not to be enough, and now it has just become official once again - Motorola has confirmed that Android 7.0 Nougat will never reach this handset via the official channels.

The Moto E3 Power uses a Mediatek MT6735P processor with Mali-T720 MP2 graphics, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB internal storage. Since these specs should be enough to run Android Nougat, we will probably see it arrive inside various unofficial ROMs in the coming months.

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.
