Lenovo-owned Motorola may not have so far launched any smartphone running Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. The company has, however, revealed a list of smartphones that will be getting the latest OS version soon.
The Chinese smartphone maker also said that the OS update will start rolling out during the fourth quarter of this year with Moto Z and the Moto G (4th Gen) receiving it first.
The Motorola smartphones which will be receiving Android 7.0 Nougat are Moto G (4th Gen), Moto G Plus (4th Gen), Moto G Play (4th Gen), Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto X Force, Droid Turbo 2, Droid Maxx 2, Moto Z, Moto Z Droid and Force Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Play Droid and Nexus 6.
Android 7.0 Nougat moved out of beta and started rolling out to Nexus users in August. The new OS version brings ‘smart notification management’ and replying options, 72 new Emoji characters, multi-window view with quick switching between apps, better 3D graphic performance with Vulkan API, new Virtual Reality mode for Daydream-supporting handsets, improved battery-saving Doze feature, data saving feature, display size adjustment, and file-based encryption for better security among others.
Google recently released an update, Android 7.1 Nougat, to the OS. According to Android Police, Google also said that Android 7.1 Nougat will be reaching the current Nexus devices and the Pixel C before the end of this year. However, the OS will not bring any Pixel-exclusive features. The OS versions will reach the Nexus devices as developer previews first.
Google has also revealed that LG V20 will be the first non-Google smartphone to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
