Deal: Unlocked Motorola Moto Z priced at $499 (again)

Didn't manage to buy an unlocked Moto Z during the Black Friday - Cyber Monday period? That's fine, because you now have another chance to get the handset for just $499.99 (that's $200 off the regular price). Right now, only Amazon is selling the unlocked Moto Z for $499, and we don't know when the offer will end.

The Motorola Moto Z that Amazon is offering for $499 has 64 GB of internal memory, comes with US warranty, and can be used on GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. Free shipping is included, as long as you have Amazon Prime. The only minor drawback is that you can't customize the phone via Moto Maker (since you're not buying it directly from Motorola).

Recently updated to Android 7 Nougat, the Moto Z is one of the thinnest smartphones in the US (at only 5.2mm). It packs plenty of nice high-end features, including a 5.5 inch Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, and 4 GB of RAM. For more details, go ahead and check out our Moto Z review.

I just purchased this phone about a week ago for $500 since I got the JBL speaker for free. The article says it was updated to 7.0 but I still don't have the update. Anyone know if it was release for the unlocked version or just the droid line?
