Motorola resumes roll-out of Android 7.0 Nougat for Moto X Pure Edition in the US

If you're still running a Moto X Pure Edition as your daily driver and haven't received the Android 7.0 Nougat update yet, you'll be pleased to know Motorola started a broader roll-out several days ago.

Back in September, Motorola kicked off the roll-out of Android 7.0 Nougat for Moto X Pure Edition in the United States, but due to a bug that caused the phone's screen to turn black after the upgrade, it was quickly pulled.

Fast forward two months and the roll-out has been resumed as reported by many Moto X Pure Edition users on Reddit. Aside from the usual new features and improvements, the update also brings the September security patch.

More importantly, it appears that this time Motorola got it right as there are no complaints of any issues with the update for the time being. If you haven't yet updated your Moto X Pure Edition, you can start tapping that Software Update button, maybe you're eligible for the upgrade.

Keep in mind that this is the last major OS update that Motorola will release for the Moto X Pure Edition, so don't wait for Android Oreo.

What a shame! In the time of Oreo, Nougat update is being rolled out!

The American version of the Moto X Style was delayed to receive the Android Nougat. The Brazilian version has been with this version since June.
