Will your Motorola handset be graced with Android Nougat? Here’s the list

Motorola has announced which of its handsets are in-line for the recently-released Android Nougat operating system.

The Lenovo-owned company hasn’t revealed exactly when each handset will receive the update, but claimed it will start rolling out before the end of the year.

The Moto Z and Moto G (4th Gen) are naturally the first in line.

So, without further ado, here’s the list:

  • Moto G (4th Gen)
  • Moto G Plus (4th Gen)
  • Moto G Play (4th Gen)
  • Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen)
  • Moto X Style
  • Moto X Play
  • Moto X Force
  • Droid Turbo 2
  • Droid Maxx
  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Droid
  • Moto Z Force Droid
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto Z Play Droid
  • Nexus 6

Sadly, if you’re the proud owner of a Moto E, you’re out of luck.

Motorola has a good record when it comes to pushing out the Android updates, partly because it uses a bare bones version of Android without an overbearing custom UI.

There was a time during the days when the company was still owned by Google that certain Moto phones would get the updates alongside Nexus devices, but those times have since passed.
