Select phones by Motorola will get Android Oreo’s sweetness. This was confirmed by the company itself via a blogpost a few days ago.
It seems nice for Motorola to honor its promise, but there are a few things to take away from this. First of all, despite their hardware similarities, it sounds like only the Moto G4 Plus will be receiving the update, while the standard G4 (and G4 Play) will be left in the dust.
In an official statement provided to Android Police, Lenovo-owned brand said, “It’s been brought to our attention that there were some errors in our marketing materials around Android O upgrades for Moto G4 Plus. This was an oversight on our part and we apologies for this miscommunication. It’s our general practice for the Moto G family to get one major OS upgrade per device, 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 it into our upgrade schedule.
