Earlier today, we wrote about Motorola removing all mentions of Android Oreo from the Moto G4 lineup. The page had previously said the device would get Android “versions N and O,” but the O part was removed. Motorola has released a statement to clear up the situation:
It’s been brought to our attention that there were some errors in our marketing materials around Android O upgrades for Moto G4 Plus. This was an oversight on our part and we apologize for this miscommunication. It’s our general practice for the Moto G family to get one major OS upgrade per device, but it’s important to us we keep our promises, so in addition to the N upgrade it has already received, we will be upgrading Moto G4 Plus to Android O. Because this is an unplanned upgrade, it will take some time to fit it into our upgrade schedule. Watch our software upgrade page for more information.
They’re claiming that the original inclusion of Android O was a mistake. The G4 Plus was only supposed to get Android Nougat. To make up for the confusion, they will update the G4 Plus to Oreo after all. However, it could take a while for the update to be ready since it wasn’t planned.
