Shame on you, Motorola!

Motorola broke its promise.

Moto G4 is not getting Oreo update. Last year when Motorola launched the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus, it promised to update both of these devices to Android N and Android O. But now, as the Android Oreo is official, Motorola has announced the list of devices which will be upgraded to Android Oreo and the list does not include the Moto G4 and G4 Plus.

Most of the smartphone manufacturers support their phones for up to 2 years now. Moto G4 is not even 18 months old and Motorola specifically mentioned that it will get the Android O update and now it has broken its promise.

Motorola has silently removed all references to its promise upgrading the Moto G4 update. Take a look at the poster when the phone was launched:

Moto G4 Before


Motorola updated the banner before releasing the list of devices getting Android Oreo. Take a look at the current banner:

Moto G4 After

Take a look at the last 2 lines of the advertisement. Motorola has cleverly removed the Android O from the banner. This move by Motorola is totally unethical. The company is trying to misguide its customers which is pathetic. You can check the new banner at the Moto G4 page of Amazon India.

That’s not all. The official Motorola India page also tweeted that the G4 Plus will get the Android Oreo update and sadly the tweet was removed after a while. Here is a screenshot of the tweet.


Motorola has gone too far misleading its customers and that is totally uncool.

Well, here is the list of Motorola devices which are getting the Android Oreo update. (Unless Motorola removes some of the devices from this list as well).

  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Droid
  • Moto Z Force Droid
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto Z Play Droid
  • Moto Z2 Play
  • Moto Z2 Force Edition
  • Moto X4
  • Moto G5
  • Moto G5 Plus
  • Moto G5S
  • Moto G5S Plus
