Moved to existing thread. Please search for and use existing threads, instead of starting new ones; especially if the topic exists.

 

As you can see, all that is known about Android O is discussed above. Google has not given a final release date, so there is no way to know when Motorola will release.

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.....



I can name multiple relatively cheap Chinese brands that deliver timely updates, and are famous for it.

Android (O) Oreo was released today (8/21/17).  I too am waiting for Android updates.

 

From "The Verge" article today at 2:50 PM: "Google is pushing Android Oreo, the official name of the next version of its mobile OS, out of developer preview / public beta and onto its Android Open Source Project today. The company also confirmed that builds for Pixel and Nexus 5X / 6P have entered carrier testing, meaning over-the-air rollout should be happening “soon,” including updates for Nexus Player and Pixel C devices."

Oreo

2017-08-21, 22:57 PM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twZggnNbFqo

 

Will the Moto G5 get Android 8.0?

Will the Moto G5 Plus get Android 8.0?

 

https://motorola-global-en-uk.custhelp.com/app/software-upgrade-news/g_id/1994

 

This website, the official page for moto G updates, does not even list the G5.

 

Are we all better off selling our G5 and buying something else?

No one here knows the answer to this. You will have to wait for motorola to make an announcement. Watch the motorola blog.

 

Only pixel and nexus will get android 8 immediately.

Re: Oreo

By looking at the track record of Nougat 7.0 for G4 plus.

 

Nougat 7.0 is also released on Aug 22, 2016 same day as 8.0 i.e.,today (Aug 22, 2017)

 

And Moto declared devices which are eligible for 7.0 on Oct 4, 2016 at here: http://blog.motorola.com/2016/10/04/n-is-for-nougat-android-7-0-is-coming-to-your-favorite-moto-phon...

 

And G4 plus received update on Dec 29, 2016.

 

So, we can also expect Oreo is gonna come at end of the 2017 for G5 plus or other Moto phones. Google aslo said this @ https://www.blog.google/products/android/android-oreo-superpowers-coming-device-near-you/
