It's definitely possible. What's likely going on right now is either Moto devs are building a 32-bit version of Oreo (which do already exist), or they're trying to figure out a way to upgrade 32-bit Nougat to 64-bit Oreo without having to completely wipe the phone, as well as developing 64-bit versions of their existing Moto apps (like the Moto camera app).

It's definitely not as "easy" as a Marshmallow to Nougat update.

When the G5s Plus is upgraded to Oreo it will run in 64 bits since the architecture of the SD 625 supports 64 bits

The current Nougat ROM is 32-bit on this same 64-bit architecture.  There are plenty of devices running a 64-bit versions of Nougat.  I highly suspect the only way to upgrade our 32-bit Nougat ROM to a 64-bit Oreo ROM is to completely wipe the phone.  Most users aren't going to want to do that.  I wouldn't mind it, but I don't think I represent "most users".

Re: Provide Android Oreo 64 bit.

2018-06-27, 5:40 AM

Inorder to improve performance of apps Google planned to make all the apps to 64bit which has been done by apple in its iOS platform it does mean that they are prohibiting 32 bit since majority of phones are running on 32 bit platform

How do you "know" this? Are you a member of the Motorola developer team?

Why exactlky is a 64 bit version of Android 8 so important to owners of the Moto G5S?

For me it doesn't matter ! Update can be 32bit or 64bit..

Urgent need is :

Update must be stable,bug-free and improvements should be there!

Camera requires major update. It can only be achieved through firmware update.
