Motorola starts pushing Android 9.0 Pie to the unlocked Moto Z3 Play in the US
Motorola published the release notes of the update a long time ago, but the actual update never arrived on the Moto Z3 Play. Last month, the Canadian units started to receive the update, which also included a security patch.
Starting today, customers who bought the unlocked Moto Z3 Play in the US should start seeing the Android 9.0 Pie update on their phones, at least according to Motorola. The company's software update roadmap spotted by AndroidSoul is very specific about the Android 9.0 Pie and mentions that the update is available for “retail Z3 Play units in the US.”
There's no mention of any additional security patches, which means Moto Z3 Play users will be stuck on the May security update. However, Motorola is expected to continue to offer security patches for the Moto Z3 Play for another year or so, not to mention that the phone should theoretically qualify for an Android Q update as well.
