Motorola launched the Moto G4 back in May 2016 with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. The subsequent migration to the latest version of the OS, Android 7.0 Nougat, began late last month when the company announced the availability of the update for its Indian users. And now it seems like Motorola is prepping to extend the update to its Europe-based G4 owners too.
A recent tweet from Motorola’s Germany division claims that the Moto G4 will receive the Android N update by the end of January. The tweet, however, didn’t mention the fate of Moto G4 Plus owners. Although, we won’t be surprised if the G4 Plus receives the same treatment from the company as the original G4. Worth noting, the regions where Motorola has released the Android N update for Moto G4 so far, the company has done so without excluding the G4 Plus.
The arrival of Android N for these devices will bring along a number of new features, including the Multi-Window View that enables users to operate two apps simultaneously in a split screen environment. In addition, the inclusion of Doze On The Go could help the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus deliver a more impressive battery backup time.
Other new features include Work Mode, Data Saver mode, a revamped notification area, easy and customizable quick settings, as well as Vulkan API support.
Both Moto G4 and G4 Plus come equipped with 5.5-inch Full HD displays offering a resolution up to 1920 x 1080p, a Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 616 SoC, and Adreno 405 graphics chip. While the Moto G4 packs 2GB or RAM, the Moto G4 Plus brings you three options to choose from — 2GB, 3GB, or 4GB RAM (depending on the onboard storage).
