Motorola lists all smartphones getting the Android 8.0 Oreo update

Motorola has just announced that many of its smartphones launched in the last year or so will receive the recently released Android 8.0 Oreo update. The list doesn't contain any budget-friendly smartphones like the Moto E4 or E4 Plus, but many mid-range handsets made it on the list.

Long story short, here are all the Motorola-branded smartphones that will receive Android 8.0 Oreo updates in the coming months: Moto Z, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Play Droid, Moto Z2 Play, Moto Z2 Force Edition, Moto X4, Moto G5, Moto G5 Plus, Moto G5S, and Moto G5S Plus.

Now that we know which smartphones will be blessed with some Oreo love, let's see when Motorola will start delivering on its promise. Well, a calendar for these releases is not available, but the US-based company said the roll-out will start “this fall.”

It would make sense for Motorola to start updating the most recent high-end smartphones (Moto Z2 Play, Moto Z2 Force Edition) and then continue with the rest of the devices on the list. So, there you have it, folks, Motorola is bringing Oreo to its fleet of smartphones very soon.

So even phones that are still within the two year mark are not getting the update? Even though I have the Z Force, this is utter bulls**t on Motorola's part. Although their Nougat updates weren't exactly problem free until after a couple of subsequent updates.

The Moto Z force is getting the latest Android 8 update, especially since it's only a year old.

I was talking about phones like the Turbo 2 or the international variants of phones prior to the Moto Z

With Motorola you might get Android 8 by the time Android 9 arrives

Not sure what you're talking about as those of us on the Z got Nougat 7.1 and 7.1.1 before many other phones in the US or even abroad. Doesn't excuse Moto for taking their time for certain models like MXPE/ Turbo 2 though.

Given up on Moto when they promised Nougat for mxpe and still haven't delivered. Can't trust a company that won't follow through on it's promises.

Motorola used to provide fast and long period support for their devices, especially during thier time under Google. But these day it wpupd totally be laughing stock, the fact that they stop support for G4 is amazing, and even now there is certain moto devices that are still stuck on Marshmallows, come on, what's the point I am buying a stock Android devices if I don't get fast update?

Would consider buying their Moto G5S Plus if there is an Android One variant. Like to try out the depth feature on their BW+RGB dual cameras.
