Lenovo confirms Android 7.0 Nougat global rollout for Moto G4 Play starts in June

Lenovo confirms Android 7.0 Nougat global rollout for Moto G4 Play starts in June
The Moto G4 series is the next to get Android 7.0 Nougat update if we are to believe the latest reports. The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus were the first to receive the update at the end of last year, but only in India.

Last month, Motorola pushed the update to the Moto G4 Plus in the United States. However, there's one more Moto G4 smartphone that hasn't been upgraded to Nougat yet.

The Moto G4 Play seems to be the last of the Moto G4 series to get the update. Lenovo recently confirmed the smartphone won't receive any Android 7.0 Nougat updates until June.

On the bright side, the rollout will commence globally, so Android 7.0 Nougat could arrive in multiple markets at the same time.

The Moto G4 Play was released last August, so there's a small chance Motorola will provide users with another major update, Android O. Anyway, until we get more info on the not yet released version of Android, let's see how the Nougat rollout for the Moto G4 Play turns out.

I used to love the designs of Moto phones, and loved how Moto pushed OS updates really quickly. But now I'm not a fan of their designs and they've become slower with their OS releases.

andoid nougat it's a bad option , it doesn't work properly on moto G4 devices. it's a shame that the quiality of updates are really low nowadays. I got the G4 plus and after the update It became immediately slow down at the point sometimes it dont let me write well, or navigate though the system. the touch response delays more than a second incredibly. has taken up to 10 seconds with the gallery app that comes with the system. I wish I could downgrade and use mashmallow 6,0 as factory came. It was better and thousand of times faster than Android 7 "nougat" theres nothing surprising here. dont update!! its my advise.
