Moto X Play to get Android Nougat later this month
This 5.5-inch handset powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor that arrived back in August 2015 with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board will get Nougat by the end of the month, confirms Motorola.
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.

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.
