According to a Brazilian blog, Motorola has started to update its Moto G7 Plus to the latest version of Android. It adds the new kind of navigation controls, a dark mode and December 2019 security patches to this phone. So far, its roll-out appears to be slow, although it may be complete within a month or so.

The Moto G7 Plus was launched just under a year ago. Despite this, it has remained on its original OS, Android 9.0 (Pie), for all of its life-cycle so far. Now, however, its seems its maker is addressing this discrepancy. Motorola is pushing an official build containing a major upgrade for the phone.

This OTA updates the G7 Plus to Android 10 (obviously). This comes with various stock enhancements such as gesture navigations, more granular personal-data protections and the option to switch the phone's FHD+ IPS display to a system-wide dark mode.

The update - Android version QPW30.61-21 for the G7 Plus - has only been picked up in Brazil thus far. As this is one of the OEM's most successful markets, it makes sense. However, it may arrive to units elsewhere on Earth soon.
