Motorola will release Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Moto G4 Plus

It created a lot of talks among the smartphone users. The reason behind this is that these devices are not even one year old and there's no real motive to why they shouldn't receive Google's latest operating system at the same time with everyone else.

Fan's had all the rights to get agitated as the Moto G4 Plus' official infographics had mentioned that the smartphone will be updated to Android Oreo.

Still, it does raise the question of why exactly the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Play can't be updated to Oreo as well.

Will the Moto G4 line be updated to Oreo or not? As far as we can tell, this promise of Android O was only ever published on G4 Plus marketing materials, so Motorola isn't technically doing anything wrong. By "partly", we mean that the smartphone maker will add only one Moto G4 to the list, and it's the Moto G4 Plus. The Moto G4 Android Oreo promise can be clearly seen at 1:02 mark.

The Moto X4 features a 5.2-inch Full HD display (1080x1920) with Gorilla Glass protection and IP68 water and dust resistance rating.

Because this is an unplanned upgrade, it will take some time to fit it into our upgrade schedule.

Last week, Motorola announced twelve phones that will be getting the Oreo mobile OS update, including the Moto Z2 Play and Moto G5 Plus.

Naturally, news of Motorola's shady backtracking hasn't gone down well with the company's customers.

Meanwhile, there is no news and report about the Moto E4 and E4 Plus that they will get Oreo upgrade or not.

To make matters worse, Motorola silently updated the infographic to remove any reference to an upgrade to Android O (via Reddit). The phones include Moto Z, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z2 Play, Moto Z Play Droid, Moto X4, Moto Z2 Force Edition, Moto G5 Plus, Moto G5, Moto G5S, and Moto G5S Plus.

Besides this, the company has also started teasing the Moto X4 smartphone on its social media channels including Twitter and Facebook. Motorola Company earlier confirmed the coming of Oreo update to the G4 phones.

The device runs on Android Nougat 7.1 and has been launched in two color variants: Super Black and Sterling Blue.
