Motorola has sent out Oreo beta updates to Moto Z2 Force users in Brazil, with the posted Release Note pointing towards a full rollout in the coming days.

Motorola began its soak test in Brazil a month ago, with users of the Z2 Force flagship receiving beta updates. The company also just posted the Release Notes for the update, which is an indication that a full rollout is on the cards. Brazil is one of the company's biggest markets of influence, as data places the company's local market shareat about 40%. It's no surprise, then, that buyers in the region get priority. 

The Z2 Force's Oreo update had no mention of Project Treble in its Release Notes, so it's safe to assume that the feature wasn't implemented. According to the Release Notes, the update also takes the form of the December security patch, and will bring standard Oreo features like Picture in Picture, Notification Dots, and Adaptive Icons.

Motorola promised that devices like the Moto Z Play, Moto G4 Plus, and current-gen devices would all get Oreo, so it's only a matter of time. Users of the Z2 Force in the US should also get Oreo betas anytime soon.

Meanwhile, there have also been reports that users of the Z2 Force's predecessor, the Moto Z, are also receiving updates. These reports are all from Brazilian users, too.
