Android Nougat update for Motorola Droid Turbo 2 (aka Moto X Force) certified by Bluetooth SIG

Android Nougat update for Motorola Droid Turbo 2 (aka Moto X Force) certified by Bluetooth SIG
The Motorola Moto Z Force DROID and the Motorola Moto Z DROID were both updated to Android 7.0 in November. Now it would appear that the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 (AKA Moto X Force) is next in line to receive the same update. Today, documentation from the Bluetooth SIG reveals that Android 7.0 has been certified by the group for use on the XT1585. 

As you can tell from the fact that they both carry the same model number, the DROID Turbo 2 and the Moto X Force are the same phone. In the states, where it is a Verizon exclusive, the phone is the sequel to the popular Motorola DROID Turbo.

The claim to fame for the DROID Turbo 2/Moto X Force is the ShatterShield layered technology on the front screen. This feature allows Motorola to guarantee that the display will not crack or shatter if dropped from five feet or less over four years. An improved version of ShatterShield can be found on the Motorola Moto Z Force and Motorola Moto Z Force DROID.

If you own the DROID Turbo 2/Moto X Force, you could see the Android 7.0 update start to rollout at the end of this month or the beginning of next month. The update includes an enhanced version of Doze. After a period of inactivity, Doze stops apps from running in the background which improves standby time and battery life. With Seamless updates, a new build of Android is downloaded and installed on your phone while you use the handset normally. Next time you boot up the device, the new software will be running the phone. With Notification Controls, you have the opportunity to silence future notifications or block them.

I thought seamless updates only worked for phone with a dedicated partition. If memory serves the 6p and 5x, while getting Android 7 won't get seamless updates because they don't have the dedicated partition and it can't be added after the fact (via OTA anyway).
