Motorola has been having a good time with the launch and the success of its smartphone lineup. Motorola just recently launched the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus in India and the phone has been received quite well in the country. Though, one thing that the company lags behind is in the update department. Motorola users of the Moto G series from the past are quite troubled by the lack of updates from the company. The Motorola users have been venting their frustations on Twitter page of Motorola.
According to a report by Android Authority, a Lenovo spokesperson has confirmed that ‘Consumers will start to see Android Nougat on Moto G4 Play in June”. Moto G4 Play is the least expensive smartphone in the Moto G4 lineup and is currently priced around Rs. 7,999 via Amazon India
The G4 Play is a lower-cost option to the Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4. It comes with a 5-inch (720p) HD display and has a Snapdragon 410 SoC and an Adreno 306 GPU. There’s also 2GB RAM and 16GB storage storage that’s expandable via a microSD card. The phone has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture and an 8-megapixel rear-facing shooter with an f/2.2 aperture and LED flash.
Connectivity options include support for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a microUSB port and LTE modem. The G4 Play gets a 2800 mAh battery and has a removable plastic back cover for accessing the microSD and SIM slots.
Android Nougat brings new features including improved battery life, new security features, expanded emoji, quick settings controls that can be easily accessed to change settings, virtual reality compatibility and the ability to run two apps side-by-side.
The fans of the smartphone can surely look forward to getting the update in the month of June. Though, the Android Nougat version was released around May last year and the companies are still lagging behind in providing the updates. This is creating a bad impression for the company.
