Lenovo said in September that it would bring Android 7.0 Nougat to its Moto G4 family by the end of 2016, and it announced details of the rollout in October. However, despite that announcement, general availability of the update didn't actually begin until December, starting in India.
Now, almost three months later, Nougat is finally making its way to the G4 and G4 Plus in the United States. As Android Police reports, the update is now being 'soak tested' by Republic Wireless, and assuming there are no issues with the first few devices to receive the update, the full rollout will then continue for all eligible handsets.
The update will bump the build number up to NPJ25.93-13; however, it's disappointing to see that it will only include the Android security patches for December, rather than the most recent February patches. Full details of the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the G4 and G4 Plus can be found here.
At last week's Mobile World Congress, Lenovo unveiled its successors to the G4 and G4 Plus. Be sure to check out our hands-on video with the new Moto G5 and G5 Plus.
