Motorola Android 7.0 Nougat update list

Android 7.0 Nougat Features

Before we move on to see which Moto devices are going to get Android Nougat Update, let’s first see what’s new in this major update from Google.
The major feature updates in Android Nougat are –
• Direct reply Notification
• Multi window
• Bundled notification
• Night mode
• Improved battery saver
• The Doze feature now works on the lock screen itself
• Unicode 9 emoji is supported
• Settings have Subheads
• Some enhancements in Security –FFile-level encryption is supported now
• Major updates in performance due to addition of Just in time(JIT) compiler which finally gets rid of that long “optimizing Apps” screen

Note: Most of the Motorola’s 2014 devices will not get the Android Nougat update. There are plenty of reasons behind this, one of them is hardware limitation! Because of Vulkan API, Android Nougat needs the Open GL 3.1 native support which is not present in most of the 2014 CPU’s.

Nougat brings some important and much-needed practical updates to the currently existing Android framework, The transition is much smoother now and features like multi-window and Direct reply notification is just icing on the cake. Overall the Nougat update has just taken the Android experience to the next level.
Now let’s See which of the Moto devices will get a taste of Android Nougat:-

Update: Motorola confirms that Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus, and Moto Z series Smartphones will get the Android Nougat update in Q4 of the year.

Kindly note that Moto G 3rd Gen, Moto G Turbo Moto E3 Power and Moto E 3rd Gen are currently not listed in official Motorola update program list, but in future Motorola may update them.

List of Moto smartphones that are going to get the Nougat update in Q4 2016:

Moto Z (Both Droid and International Edition)
Moto Z Force
Moto Z Play (Both Droid and International Edition)
Moto G4
Moto G4 Plus

Moto Z SERIES

Since the Z series featured the flagship devices from the house of Motorola, it is fully assured that the Moto Z series will definitely get an official OTA update to Android 7.0 and it’s quite obvious that the Z series phones will be the first ones to receive the update in the Moto family.
Moto Z (2016) – XT1635-03
Moto Z Droid
Moto Z Force Droid (2016) (VERIZON EXCLUSIVE IN US)

Motorola Nexus 6 is already receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update.

Moto X SERIES

The mid segment range of smartphones from Motorola fall in this category, the likes of Moto X-Force, X-Play, X STYLE will definitely be getting the taste of Nougat update.

  15. First of all my Name is Lorenzo I’ve bought the motog3 because of it update supports and the price for what it can do. After 2 weeks when i bought it i received an update called marshmellow i was really happy with this update i still am. But when Android nougat came out i noticed something odds. The lack of support i knew that the motog3 wasnt getting another update. But it was to strange to believe it. So i still had faith in Motorola but when i came back to this forum i saw that the motog3 is only getting updated by cyangenmod. I find this unfair because i bought up to 2 years of support so you can imagine my feeling. And ofcourse other people to. So we signed a petition to hear is but it had all no use. I find it sad that we are getting threated like this. We don’t deserve this. It has lead it to me and proberly more motog3 users to not buy any motorola phone. I didnt have to be this way. Best regards -Lorenzo

  16. Can I know whether Moto g turbo edition gets android nougat.
    U have added a discription that update Moto g3 via cm14.1 .But cm is dead ..
    New lineage os takes time

  17. It depends on your country and carrier also, However, we suggest you wait for some time cause there is a delay in the G Play update program.

  18. Hi good morning my Moto G3 not responding proper some functions may not work can you please send me new latest version of moto G3 updates .

  19. Please tel me when naugat update available for moto g 4 play in india.lot of people awaited for upgradation.

  20. will the moto g4 play xt1607 get android N? All thins above say in Q4 of 2016 but it is now january 2017 and i still have yet to get it.

  21. When will u launch android n update for moto e3 power? Will you going to launch the update for this model? If yes then when?

  22. I love how people are requesting to have the update available for phones not listed. It’s not as simple as ask and receive. It takes a lot to get an updated android OS to run on older phones. Time and money. If your phone is not listed then it isn’t in the current plans to be updated. If something changes Motorola will let people know.

  23. Why you are not giving the update to Nougat I Moto G (3rd Gen).
    What’s the problem yar..
    We are still waiting…

  24. Please update moto g turbo edition update please please ????????????????????????????????????????????????please update android 7.0 . please

    Updated to Android naugat there is no hope visible to me and feelings my money isn’t worth for it as cheaper phone got updated and is in the lost of naught update and Moto turbo isn’tin the list ????????????????????

  27. Why isn’t Moto G Turbo Edition in the list? It was released in November 2015 and Android Nougat was released in August 2016, just 10 months after the release of Moto G Turbo. I understand that Moto G3’s cpu Snapdragon 410 doesn’t support Open GL 3.1 but Moto G Turbo’s Snapdragon 615 clearly supports Open GL 3.1. So why isn’t it getting the Nougat update?

  28. Why isn’t Moto G Turbo Edition in the list? It was released in November 2015 and Android Nougat was released in August 2016, just 10 months after the release of Moto G Turbo. I understand that Moto G3’s cpu Snapdragon 410 doesn’t support Open GL 3.1 but Moto G Turbo’s Snapdragon 615 clearly supports Open GL 3.1. So why isn’t it getting the Nougat update?
    Timely updates and software support is the only reason anyone buys Motorola phones. If you take that away, you got nothing.

  29. When would I get nougat update in my Moto g4 plus it’s already December and no update till now I want date of release of nougat in my phone

  51. Last year Motorola users got marshmallow update earlier but when lenovo bought Motorola it changed
    Now it’s sad to say that lenovo owned Motorola phones will get Nougat update only after a long time

    I think for nougat OpenGL ES 3.1 is required and the SnapDragon 410 supports only ES 3.0?

  57. Hello motorolla
    My motorolla droid maxx 2 XT-1565. Does it will get the new Android update? I mean nougat? please reply.

  58. No 7.0 Nougat for my Moto E LTE 2nd gen? Sorry but it was last device from you that I bought Motorola-Lenovo. Ridiculous situation, Moto E LTE has even more than enough hardware specification to handle not only 7.0 Nougat and the fact that it won’t get one is only Lenovo malevolence! Bye bye Motorola, Xiaomi is many times better choice than your products!

  59. Motorola droid turbo xt1225.,is it going to be updated to 7.0 nougat ??????.
    It’s recently updated to marshmallow

  60. Hello Motorola

    Android came out today (August 22): has there been any word from motorola-lenovo about when the update will be release for the models listed?

    Thanks in advance.

  61. Hello Motorola

    Sure thing, my country is México and my model number is XT1556.

    I have over 20 incidents with latin america customer help, and all I get every time is “wait”… since 5 months ago.

    Most other devices (from moto G2 to X play) in my country already have marshmallow update since april, but seems mine is forgotten, I wonder why older devices like G2 are already updated, but mine which is from november last year it’s still without marshmallow.

    Can you help me? Really 5 months waiting without news and most other devices already updated it’s disturbing.

  62. I wonder if this list will not be a lie, like the one for marshmallow, I’m still waiting the update for my Moto G Turbo and the author itself said I won’t get it.

    I wonder if my Moto G turbo will get nougat someday, or I’ll stay forever in lollipop….
