Moto X Force gets Android 7.0 Nougat

Moto X Force Android handset gets Android 7.0 Nougat starting with Latin America
Moto X Force
This Android handset that was unveiled back in late 2015 receives the most recent major iteration of Google's mobile operating system starting with Latin America, so the Verizon-exclusive Motorola Droid Turbo 2 should get the latest security patches as well.

Motorola Latin America has just announced the arrival of Android 7.0 Nougat for the Moto X Force handsets in the area. The update is a major one, obviously making the move from Marshmallow to Nougat, and comes with the Android security patch dated April 1, 2017.

The new firmware comes with the changes we heard of so many times until now - improved battery saving, multi-window support, bundled notifications, new emojis, improved settings, and much more. The update will roll out in stages via OTA, so not all Moto X Force handsets in the area will get it this week.

This Qualcomm Snapdragon 810-powered handset arrived in the US back in 2015 as a Verizon Wireless exclusive as Motorola Droid Turbo 2. The Android Nougat update for it arrived already in February, but now it should probably get the latest security patch as well. As soon as that happens, we will get to it, 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.
