Motorola says Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid will get Oreo "in a few weeks"

Motorola says Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid will get Oreo
It may not be a surprise, but Motorola is letting Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid owners that an Android 8.0 Oreo update will come their way very soon.

Apparently, Motorola left a message to owners of these smartphones letting them know that they are “planning an Android 8.0 Oreo update” for their devices. Motorola also says that “it may take a while, so check back in a few weeks.” You can find the message in the phone's Settings menu when you check for an update.

Motorola previously confirmed the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid will be updated to Android Oreo, but the US company didn't provide any ETA for its release.

Oreo will probably be the last major Android update these two smartphones will receive, but that's still great considering they were launched back in 2016. Hopefully, Motorola will release the update by the end of the month, as the message suggests.

Z series are really not ergonomics unless you put some case or mods on it. so edgy Had Z2 Play, never liked how it felt in hand. Moto series now sucks cuz once they were firrst to get update now you'd be lucky if you get it.

Motorola suck so hard at updates. I'm really surprised peeps are still buying from this (once good) company.
