Over a year after promising Oreo for the Moto G4 Plus, Motorola is yet to do so

Motorola released the Moto G4 Plus back in 2016 and promised it would receive two major updates. A while later, the company went back on its word and claimed the mid-range phone would not get the update, prompting a media outcry which forced it to once again promise to deliver Oreo. It's been 16 months since then, though, and the G4 Plus is still on Nougat.

In what may turn out to be another case of corporate deceit, Motorola has failed to deliver on its promise to provide the Moto G4 Plus with Android Oreo, over 16 months after it was called out on its crookery.

Motorola released the Moto G4 Plus back in 2016. The mid-range phone ran on Android Marshmallow out of the box, and Moto advertised it as being eligible for two major updates: Nougat and Oreo. When Oreo was released to the public in August 2017, the company unveiled its Oreo update road map.

The G4 Plus wasn’t on it.

Of course, that only served to stoke the flames of a public outcry, a fiasco that concluded with Motorola promising to send the Oreo update to G4 Plus, like it originally advertised.

Since then, though, users of the G4 Plus are yet to receive any Oreo update. In fact, according to posts by users of that device online, Motorola hasn’t sent any security updates to the G4 Plus since early 2018. There were reports, a few months ago, that the company had begun the soak test for the Oreo update but that is as far as things have gone, and G4 Plus users are yet to get anything concrete.

Send out the G4 Plus’s Oreo update, Moto; we still remember all about this.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
