No on here on this Forum knows that answer for sure.  The Moto dev team normally doesn't post here.  And if they do, they are not going to announce official software update dates.  All we can do is check the Moto software update page for our phone model.

 

Unofficially, I would guess that there is a pretty good chance since our phones are just now reaching the 1 year old mark.  But that's just my guess; and it will probably be much later this year or early next year until that happens (again...just my guess nothing even remotely official).  The new Z3 phones will take priority for all new OS updates.

This is a user-to-user support forum, where Moto phone users help each other with the aid of Moto Agents from time to time.  Not sure why anyone would have told you this a Moto developer forum.  All we can do is chaeck the Moto software update page for our phones, but they do not publish dates; just whether or not a specific phone model is scheduled to receive OS updates.  It's at:

As far as I know, no one has released anything about what brands or models will get it yet, except the Pixel phones of course. I would think before the end if the year manufacturers will have announced which models will be upgraded. But still Motorola will never give a date or time frame.

This issue with the OS upgrades is what will eventually drive me away from Motorola.  It is ridiculous I have to wait months or even years to get security and OS upgrades after they are released.  I may just be forced to buy a Pixel 3 XL just to keep my phone up to date.  Shame Lenovo has to bow to Verizon to get simple patches and upgrades through to the users.

Past experience shows that Moto update policy reflects other manufacturers. This general policy was also communicated to me at a commercial presentation. So similar to Samsung  the flagship range (Galaxy s, note, moto z) gets 2 major version upgrades. Mid range ( Samsung A series  moto G) gets one upgrade and the entry level (Samsung j series, moto e) doesn't get a major upgrade.

 

So odds are on for pie.

I sure hope we do, as with my Force Z2, we are still waiting for the 8.1 Oreo update.  So if we get Pie on the Z2 Force it will be a good thing.  But I am not holding my breath.  Android updates should be much easier and faster to get at this point.

Hi Everyone,

 

We are working on the new Android 9.0 Pie code. Our goal is to get it right and make sure the phone performance is the best it can be. We'll share upgrade plans for our products and keep everyone posted on our software upgrade news page and the Motorola blog.
