Motorola has launched the next smartphones in its Moto G series being the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus at the MWC in Barcelona last month and subsequently launched the Moto G5 Plus in India on March 15 and has already sent out invites for its event on April 4 where the company will launch the Moto G5 in India. However, the company has been busy giving the updates to the older G series phones particularly the G4 Plus which already got the Android Nougat update at the start of this year. Now the company has been testing the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update on the G4 Plus.
This information has been known from the phone’s GFXBench results which show that the phone known to be Moto G4 Plus is running Android 7.1.1 Nougat. We know that the company has not been very good at giving updates in the past with the company reportedly saying that they would not be able to give regular security updates to its devices due to lack of time.
As for the specifications of the phone, the Moto G4 Plus runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa core CPU @1.6GHz with Qualcomm Adreno ™ 405 GPU with 1920 x 1080, 5.5″ inch LCD display. The device shown in the results is the 2 GB variant of the Moto G4 Plus which has 32 GB of internal storage.
Motorola and its parent company, Lenovo have been known to lag behind in the security updates department but it is good to see that Moto G4 Plus will become only the second device after OnePlus 3T to get the Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
