[OFFICIAL] Android 8(Oreo) Update CONFIRMED!

2017-09-14, 19:26 PM

Motorola has confirmed that Moto G5, Moto G5 will recieve Android Oreo update! :smileyhappy:

 

 

 

 

It also further confirmed that these phones will receive security updates as well.

(I expected nothing less from Motorola.)

 

Note that this is just a confirmation and doesn't provide any definite release date as of yet. My guess would be by the end of this year.

So, there you have it! I hope all "when will.... get update?" questions stop now.

Re: [OFFICIAL] Android 8(Oreo) Update CONFIRMED!

Hello everyone, I know many of you have been eagerly awaiting Oreo for your Moto G5 Plus and Moto G5. I'm happy to say that we've started rolling out the Oreo update in phases for the Moto G5 Plus in India and Brazil and the Moto G5 in Mexico. Please be patient as not all devices in India, Brazil, and Mexico will get the update immediately. Other regions are still pending and will get the update in the future. 

 

-Tom

Android O has not even been named yet. It may be called anything starting with O

 

http://www.androidcentral.com/android-o-name

 

But the actual code is unlikely to be finished until late summer  - September, then it goes to the OEMs like Motorola and they have to customize it for the G5 (drivers and other hardware specific settings) - so a good guess would be December - similar to the timeframe for G4 to get N. 

 

That is my opinion. I have no more information then anyone else.

Android O doesn't even have a release date (or a name!) yet so you're not going to get any commitment from Motorola or any other manufacturers.

 

I'd like to think the Moto G5 phones will get at least one "major" Android update (e.g. the G4 got an update from Marshmallow to Nougat) so that would mean the G5 starting on Nougat and going to O... but there are no guarantees.

If you have battery drain ans other issues, you should work on fixing them now. My G5 Plus has none of these so the OS is not the problem. That means android O would likely make things worse on your phone, not better. 

 

is correct in his/her assessment. O is not out yet. It should release to Nexus/Pixel in August/September.  But the OEMs will then need months to modify it for each phone. So December/January at earliest. Some moto phones still are waiting on N - so if the G5 gets it, it could be a year from now.

Your right in some way...  Most STOCK android devices like the Pixel phones get the Android O PREVIEW!

 

As mentioned, Android O don't have a release date and for sure it will met in Q4 as always.

 

Also, Lenovo phones including the Motorola range DON'T RUN ON STOCK ANDROID!!!  it might look like stock Android but it's heavenly modified. You can see it for yourself easy when you take a look at running services or if you look at the files in the system folder.

 

From what vo told this year you will not see Android 8 on the Leno devices and all updates will be hold till that moment... you might have noticed not even the security updates are available for any Lenovo phones running android 7.xx

 

You might ask to much, You did you buy a cheap Chinese phone....  Chinese phones are not world famous for their fast and regular software updates.....

The only right answer is the one that solves the problem !

All of my family members can use Motorola mobiles and they have received some security updates as well as some bug fix..

I know that Motorola gives updates on regular basis.. but i want Android O for nice performance..

Moto G5 Plus already runs fine..

But after some days Motorola should gives updates..

You keep saying Motorola but you did buy a Lenovo model Motorola G5(+) Lenovo did NOT release any updates till now exept one for the G5+ in India but that had a special reason.
