These Motorola Phones Will Get The Android Oreo Update

Motorola has just announced the list of its smartphones that will receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update. A dozen handsets have made the list, many of them being exactly what we expected: the moto z and its various variants, moto z2 Play / Force Edition, and more. Motorola also has an online tool that allows its handset owners to select their carrier and phone to find out if/when it'll be updated.

Motorola announced the lineup on its blog today, revealing that the phones listed below will all get the Android Oreo at some point. The update will, by all accounts, bring a bunch of improvements including better notifications, split-screen functionality, better battery life, and more.

As you can see, the lineup covers the major handsets, but leaves a bunch out of the mix. If your moto phone is more than a year old, you're mostly out of luck when it comes to the Android Oreo update; this includes all of the moto G4 devices, unfortunately. If your phone is on the list for the update, though, you may be seeing it arrive as soon as this autumn season.
