If you remember, Google began rolling out the Android Oreo update to owners of the Android One Moto X4, however, those with unlocked variants have been left in the dark. According to a posting on the Motorola support forums, the company is now beginning to roll out Oreo to those unlocked versions.
Deployment for Oreo update has started but not everyone would have it, all at the same time. Please be advised that OTA updates not just depend on the Model and the Country but with the Carrier as well. We recommend waiting for the official release of OTA update, as you will receive notification about the update once available.
As expected, this software rollout isn’t something that everyone owning a Moto X4 can just go ahead and download right away. Instead, the company is rolling out the Oreo update in stages, and states that you should wait “for the official release of OTA update”.
Now that the Android One and unlocked versions of the Moto X4 are being updated to Oreo, the last version left on the list is the Prime-exclusive version. There was no mention as to when the Amazon-only version will be updated, but we are expecting it to be a few more weeks before any official statement is made.
Let us know if you’ve received the Android Oreo update on your Moto X4 and if you have run into any problems so far.
