It seemed Nougat was being released for the Moto G4 and G4 Plus back in October, but the general rollout never materialized... until now. Android 7.0 has now started making its way to both handsets.
Motorola has officially announced that its Android 7.0 Nougat update has begun rolling out to the Moto G4 and G4 Plus. You can find out what to expect from the update on the two handsets here.
Motorola originally promised that Android 7.0 Nougat would be coming to its Z and G4 family later this year. Now, the company has published a full list of supported devices that will get the update.
Motorola says that it will begin upgrading its Moto Z and G4 handsets to Android 7.0 next quarter - but it's not yet saying anything about its Nougat plans for the other devices in its range.
The Moto G4 Play, the cheapest variant of the Moto G4 is now available through various carriers in Canada at a starting price of $199. The device is expected to launch in India soon as well.
In its latest promotion, Amazon is offering two Android handsets at major discounts to Prime members. Advertisements and "special offers" will display on the devices' screens when they are locked.
Lenovo might not have given up on the Moto E series yet, as a device named Moto E3 Power has passed the Wi-Fi Alliance's certification process recently, and might be launching soon.
The unlocked versions of the Moto G4 and G4 Plus can now be pre-ordered from Motorola's website in the US, and retailers such as Best Buy and B&H are offering a $50 gift card with each order.
Lenovo has launched the Moto G4 and G4 Plus smartphones at its event in New Delhi just now, the devices will initially go on sale in India and Brazil before expanding to other markets.
Motorola might be launching the fourth-generation Moto G earlier than expected, as the company has sent out invites for an event on May 17 in New Delhi that "you wouldn't want to miss".
