Motorola G4 Play getting Android 7.0 Nougat update in June: Report

Moto G4 Play, the lower end smartphone in Motorola's G4 series, will get the Android 7.0 Nougat update in June. Motorola started Android Nougat soak test for G4 and G4 Plus last year and the update started hitting most markets in December, rolling out to the US in March.

Moto G4 Play, on the other hand, is still running Android Marshmallow and Lenovo has confirmed to Android Authority that the handset will be updated to Nougat. The update will be released at some point in June for devices sold in the US, but there is no clarity on the update for global variants. "Consumers will start to see Android Nougat on Moto G4 Play in June," a US-based spokesperson of Lenovo told Android Authority.

When Motorola started updating its G4 series to Android Nougat, it was anticipated that the G4 Play will also get a taste of Nougat. But, the Lenovo-owned company kept the device out of its update schedule and considering its affordability, the device was not likely to get the new version.

During the release of first-gen Moto X and Moto G series, Motorola had positioned itself as a company that will continue to support its devices for a slightly longer period. However, the company then stopped software updates for even some of its latest devices and the confirmation around G4 Play Android update brings renewed hope for Moto's Android upgrade cycle. Android Nougat is currently running on nearly 5 percent active devices.
