List of Motorola devices that will receive Android 8.0 update was officially published recently. But the list failed to please most of us, due to the absence of entire G4 family. And now, Motorolla officially announced that the Moto G4 Plus will receive Android O upgrade. No one knows what went wrong at the first place.
It has been only 1.5 years since the company launched Moto G4 series. That means, the device is eligible for receiving the Android O upgrade. Apart from that, Motorola officially altered the infographic of G4 Plus that clearly mention about Oreo upgrade. But the device didn't make the official list of devices to get Android Oreo upgrade.
Most of the users having Moto G4 family devices in their possession are still not happy. Because only the Moto G4 Plus will receive the Oreo upgrade. Moto G4 and G4 Play users will have to satisfy themselves with Android Nougat. Anyway, a minor mistake from the official side changed the story for G4 Plus.
Motorola officially confessed that it was completely a mistake with the altering of Moto G4 infographics. Being said that, they are planning to release an “unplanned” update targeting the device, to correct their mistake. Here is their official statement,
Since the time of posting this, we have learned of some errors in our marketing materials around Android O upgrades for moto g4 Plus. It’s our general practice for the moto g family to get one major OS upgrade per device, so it wasn’t originally planned for Android O. But it’s important to us we keep our promises, so in addition to the N upgrade it has already received, we will be upgrading moto g4 Plus to Android O. Because this is an unplanned upgrade, it will take some time to fit into our schedule, we’ll update our software upgrade page when we have more info.
