Julian, 18 Sep 2017The HTC One A9 has a Snapdragon 617 and was officially updated to Nougat. It's not a matter of... moreHuh, didn't know that, thanks for informing me. Guess motorola or lenovo, rather, is a crappy company.
They spoil their own reputation. I bought a Lenovo Vibe x3 (with amazing audio chip and 20MP camera; except OIS) which was their flagship for ~20k INR. Got updated to Android N quickly after launch. But that was it they didn't even provide security patches / bug fixes to OS or worse update to Volte which the hardware supported only to be ignored by the software drivers.
Many users of VibeX3 have already written off purchasing lenovo phones again and now the same will apply to Moto G4 users. Best way to lose a customer base.
Now companies are forcing users to depend on Samsung. Hope HMD & LG give us a way out.
If motorola/lenovo denied there promise this is my last motorola/lenovo device ever.I bought this phone only to get updates to latest android version but they cheating us so no issue my next phone will never be any motorola/lenovo device. SHAME ON YOU TO BREAK PROMISES MOTO/LENOVO.
Moto G4 Plus will Android Orea update. Just saw an updated announcement in their blog.
Rahul, 18 Sep 2017When Moto E 4 plus will get oreo update??in your dreams
Lenovo Owned moto is not good , No regular security update they are giving only promise before Purchase, I have moto G4 Plus . This is my last mobile ,I Never do mistake again . before motorola was very good phone and customer service & Software update.
Atrocity and cheating the customers for forcing them to buy the latest version !!! Moto g4 plus sud get Oreo update !!
DrearyDepp, 18 Sep 2017Possibly, because I don't see any SD 617 phones being officially updated to Nougat anywhere. Q... moreWorth checking out. And to think that I considered getting G5 plus for its camera...
Moto G4 Plus will get the Oreo update in the end. There was confusion in the marketing materials: https://blog.motorola.com/2017/09/14/say-hello-android-oreo/

It's not a matter of drivers, it's a matter of OEMs promising when they absolutely know they cannot deliver. Worst thing is, probably they have a way to avoid legal issues with this. I know of a few people who were convinced to buy this phone because of the Oreo promised update. Such a shame Motorola has become this.
DrearyDepp, 18 Sep 2017Possibly, because I don't see any SD 617 phones being officially updated to Nougat anywhere. Q... moreTrue @ Chinese phones. Some phones I've played with intended for Chinese markets are updated 2-3 times a month, which is an annoyance in an different way.
On another note, there are a few phones launched this year with SD625. Think VERY carefully before buying one, if Qualcomm is dropping driver support so early in the lifecycle for lower end chipsets, and Project Treble is only required on phones launched with Oreo. Ya... Things may get pretty salty if one gets one of those.
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2017I wonder if this is because Motorola doesn't want to release an update, or Qualcomm not releas... morePossibly, because I don't see any SD 617 phones being officially updated to Nougat anywhere. Qualcomm themselves said that SD 800/801, their previous flagship chipsets, won't officially support Nougat (they don't have the required drivers) so I don't see a midranger like SD 617 getting much love either.
But then again, we are talking about Lenovo here and like most Chinese OEMs, they don't have the best track record when it comes to keeping promises.
I'm more upset that they make no mention of the E4 either, which is only a few months old.
Same thing happened with 1st gen moto E users they promised us lollipop but they didn't gave us a OTA motorola after acquired by lenovo moto is now junk i was thinking of getting moto G5S but now i simply can't trust this company with updates.
Cheap or not, if you said you will do an update and not just said but marketed about it basically everywhere, you should keep and fulfill that promise no matter what. Failed to do so will hurt your company credibility really really hard, especially cheap phone since a lot of people bought it rather than the high end one. If you can't keep your promise, never promise. This also can lead to legal issues since it's basically a false marketing
