About a month ago, Motorola sent soak test invites in the US for the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Moto X Pure Edition phablet. This handset is available in Europe and other areas as Moto X Style. Now, the new firmware is finally rolling out to the Moto X Pure Edition phablets in the US.

According to the official support page, this update comes with the usual new features that can be noticed when upgrading from Marshmallow to Nougat, such as:

  • multi-window support
  • quick switch between apps
  • improved Doze mode
  • direct reply to messages from notifications
  • bundled notifications and notification controls
  • enhanced Quick Settings
  • new and updated emojis
  • variable text to speech
  • call screening
  • improved multi-language support

The support page does not offer any details on the update's version number or size, but such packages usually have around 1.5 GB, so downloading the new firmware might take some time. The update rolls out in stages via OTA, so some users might have to wait for a few days or try to check manually instead of waiting for the notification to show up.

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.
