Google today announced that it's bringing Android One to theUS- just as recently rumored.

According to Google, Android One will allow owners of thisMoto X4 to get an update to Android 8 Oreo by the end of 2017. Interestingly, Googleeven mentions that the device will be among the first to be updated to AndroidP (of course, this will likely happen sometime in the second half of 2018).


Highlight features of the Moto X4 include a 5.2-inch 1080pdisplay, a dual 12 MP rear camera, an octa-core Snapdragon 630 processor, and adust- and water-resistant body.

Moreover, folks whotrade in by October 5 can earn $50 Fi credit. The Moto X4 is joining the GooglePixel and Pixel XL - the only phones that are currently available to orderright away on Project Fi.
