Ridiculous! Motorola Moto E LTE 2gen with same SoC has been said not to get Nougat because unsupported CPU, wtf?
we don't have this phone in nigeria .i would have love to have one and how can get it in nigeria?
I have the GM4 which was updated to Nougat the moment I unboxed it. It looks practically identical to the featured GM5 cosmetically as sounds similar on the hardware front. Can't fault this device and it wipes the floor with other bigger brands selling at the same price.

AnonD-562549, 06 Nov 2016Wrong.. Vulkan API is optional and not needed for Nougat, the phone will boot even without Vul... moreHmm, not quite sure about that: It was reported that the Google Compatibility Test Suite (whose tests must be passed in order to receive official certification) specified that all devices running Nougat must support Vulkan.
