Motorola To Launch Moto X4 In India: What To Expect

Moto X4 Motorola will launch its new Android One Smartphone in India Soon

Motorola has just announced the launch of its latest Android smartphone, the Moto X4, for the Indian market. After facing criticism for making false promise to Moto G4 Plus users, Motorola has confirmed that the handset will be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo. It's gone as far as to wipe out all mention of Android 8.0 from the promotional materials for the Moto G4 Plus.

If you own a G4 Plus or have bought some for your family members please let Ausdroid know if/when the Android 8.0 update gets released for the phone.

The display on the same is a lovely 5.2 inch LTPS IPS LCD display which sports 1080 X 1920 pixel screen resolution with Corning Gorilla Glass protection on the top. What's coming in Android Oreo?

Despite the similar hardware, Motorola will only be upgrading the G4 Plus to Android O. The Moto G4 is still neglected but that's ok because the Android O promise was published only on the G4 Plus marketing materials. Don't expect the OS anytime soon though, because the firm states this is an unplanned upgrade and will take some time to fit into its schedule.

Motorola shares some history of working together with Google and that's why Motorola is always one of the first companies to get access to the latest Android software update. "This software update page for more information".

Naturally, news of Motorola's shady backtracking hasn't gone down well with the company's customers. An official statement was sent by the company that read, "It has come to our attention that there were some errors in our marketing content and we sincerely apologize for the same". The phones include Moto Z, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z2 Play, Moto Z Play Droid, Moto X4, Moto Z2 Force Edition, Moto G5 Plus, Moto G5, Moto G5S, and Moto G5S Plus. Motorola believes in the importance of keeping promises so it will upgrade the flagship phone from past year. Umm, that's a different debate all together why only one major OS update, but meanwhile, here is the official statement from Motorola.

Sporting a 5.2 inch full HD IPS LCD display, the device runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
