Motorola pledges Android 7 Nougat support for more than a dozen models

Motorola on Tuesday confirmed it will deliver Android 7.0 Nougat updates to some fifteen of its models. As we might expect, the list of devices is largely comprised of phones from 2016 with a few from last year, too.

According to the phone maker, the updates are expected to roll out as soon as December. There’s no indication as to which phones will see the Nougat-flavored software first but we suspect it’s the unlocked models first. A number of devices are supported strictly through Verizon so that could add on extra time before the update is pushed out.

Models expecting Android 7.0 Nougat:

  • 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
  • Moto Z Force Droid
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto Z Play Droid
  • Nexus 6

One of the best things about a Motorola phone, in our opinion, is its Android build. Aside from those sold through Verizon, there is very little added to the software experience. But, even in instances when we have Verizon’s influence, the overall build is very close to stock Android. This leads to more timely software and security updates.
