Motorola starts rolling out Android 9 Pie update to the Moto X4
One of the cheapest smartphones launched by Motorola last year, the Moto X4 is getting a second life with the release of the newest Android OS update. The U.S. company is now rolling out Android 9 Pie for Moto X4, but not many will get it this month.

In early November, Motorola offered Moto X4 beta testers an Android Pie soak test, but starting today, a stable version of the update is being rolled out in Brazil, XDA Developers reports. Since the update has already passed the beta tests, there's a high chance Moto X4 owners in the United States will start seeing the update by the end of the year.

According to a couple of screenshots, the Android 9 Pie update for the Moto X4 includes the November security patch, along with other improvements like adaptive battery, adaptive brightness, and app actions.

Android 9 Pie is the second major update that the Moto X4 is getting in just one year, but we can't help and wonder whether or not the phone will receive yet another Android OS update in 2019.
