A number of Motorola devices are going to get the Android 8.0 Oreo update very soon. This time, Moto G phones will be among the first batches to receive this update. It can be recalled that Google first released the latest Android version to the Pixel and Nexus phones. However, Google is also working to bring the new Android Oreo to other phone manufacturers such as Motorola.
Obviously, Motorola smartphones such as the Moto G4, G4 Play, G4 Plus, G5, G5S, G5 Plus, and the G5S Plus are going to have the latest Android version 8.0. Moreover, the company has released the Midnight Blue version of the Moto G5S, which runs on Android Nougat. Thus, Motorola has confirmed an Oreo update soon.
The Moto G5 Plus, on the other hand, offers a great deal when it comes to features. Aside from the 4GB of RAM, it also has 3,000mAh of battery to go along with it. Thus, an Android Oreo update should be a good way to maximize its true potential as a powerful Moto device. In addition, it runs on stock Android, which ensures smooth and fluid software experience, without the bloatware, gestures, or gimmicks.
If you own a Moto G series smartphone today, it might be a good idea to wait for the Oreo update before you upgrade your phone. Better yet, hang on to it for a while because it has amazing new features via this new Android update. After all, not all Android devices are lucky enough to receive the update this quick. So, it might take a while before any other smartphone brand gets updated.
Take note that not all Motorola devices are the same, but the Moto G5S has some notable features worthy for an Android 8.0 Oreo update. It is, in fact, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, 1.4GHz octa-core CPU. Likewise, it has an Adreno 505 GPU that comes with a 3GB of RAM, along with 32GB of internal storage. You can even expand the storage to 128GB through a microSD card.
There is even more good news for Moto lovers because the company is working for next year’s lineup of smartphones. This will include the release of the Moto G6 series, such as the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and the Moto G6 Play. However, further details about the specs of these phones were not disclosed as of the moment.
Here are some of the most anticipated features of the Oreo update.
- Background limits – this feature should limit the number of apps to run in the background in some areas, which include location, broadcast, or background services.
- Picture-in-picture – this functionality should be a useful addition to the Android platform. This is because users can continue watching videos while working on other apps. However, this will convert the video screen to a smaller size.
- Notification channels – Google has also included this update so that users can have more control over notification categories of their apps.
If you have tried beta versions of the Oreo update, you might get an idea what other features are available to you once you get the most recent version of Android.
