Moto X Play to get Android Nougat later this month
Moto X Play has been around long enough to move up from Android 5.1.1 Lollipop to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Now, it looks like the time for another sweet treat from Google has arrived, since Moto Deutschland has just confirmed the arrival of the Android Nougat update for this handset.
According to Android Community, Moto Deutschland has confirmed on Twitter that the new firmware is set to arrive later this month. The reply to one customer's question about the update leaves no room for misunderstandings: "Android 7 is going to be available for the Moto X Play in January 2017." The Twitter message also comes with a link to Motorola's Support Portal, where anyone can check if a certain device will get new firmware or not.
The 5.5-inch Moto X Play has a water repellent design, and its full HD display is protected using Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Inside, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor next to 2 GB RAM, 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage, a 5 MP front camera and a 21 MP main image shooter, NFC connectivity, as well as the ubiquitous dual-SIM, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, and micro USB. The battery has a capacity of 3,630 mAh.
