Moto G4 Play Android Nougat update will be rolled out in June

Moto G4 Play is a low-cost Android smartphone offering from Motorola. Launched in May last year, the G4 Play was not been globally available until August 2016 when it was included on Amazon’s Prime Exclusive Program. Although the phone is targeted to those, who are tight on budget, the device doesn’t compromise in any aspect. After all you get it at just around a hundred bucks without any carrier contract.

But it turns out that the biggest surprise is just yet to come. After 7 months, Lenovo has decided to roll out Android Nougat update for Moto G4 Play. The official Android 7.0 update will start rolling out “globally” this June, although latest reports says that it may take a bit longer but will come before the launch of Android 8.0. This is totally unexpected given that the device is a budget phone with an ageing processor.

The device packs a decent specs for a price of about Rs. 7,999. It’s an Android Marshmallow out-of-the-box, powered by 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The device also has a micro SD card slot that can be expanded up to 128GB.

The device also features 4G band which supports VoLTE. In addition to that already descent spec sheet is an 8MP rear-facing camera and 5MP front-facing camera which is good for shooting selfies. The only downside is the battery which is non- removable but for a 2800mAh rating, it can stand the day with minimal usage. Good thing it supports for 10 W quick charge which delivers 5 hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charge.

    Actually the battery on a Moto G4 Play is removable. You have to remove it to install the Sim and SD cards.
