Lenovo-owned Motorola recently announced a list of smartphones that would receive the latest Android 8.0 Oreo update. The list included smartphones from the Moto Z, Moto X and the Moto G series. However, one smartphone that is evidently missing from the list is the Moto G4 Plus. It comes as a surprise since Motorola had previously promised that the Moto G4 series would receive both Nougat and Oreo updates. However, the company has removed all traces of Oreo update for the Moto G4 series. Also Read - Next Moto G to get Snapdragon 800 series chip, could bring a mobile desktop mode

This was first brought to light by Redditor niteshg16 (via Android Police) who shared evidence of Motorola quietly omitting Android Oreo update information. To start with, the product listing for the Moto G4 plus on the company’s official website earlier stated, “Moto Pure phones like the Moto G4 Plus will get upgraded to Android operation system versions N and O.” The statement now only mentions Android N. This is visible on Amazon India’s page for the Moto G4 Plus, which has the same statement. Here, too the Android O mention has been removed.

The same has been noticed on a Spanish brochure for the Moto G4 Plus, which promised Android Oreo update. On the same day of announcing the smartphone list for Android Oreo update, Motorola India through its reply tweet said that the G4 Plus will get the update. However, the tweet is no longer available now. The Moto G4 Plus was launched last year, and as promised, users received the Android Nougat update in India by December. This seems quite some surprising considering Motorola’s track record of quickly rolling out Android OS upgrades for its smartphones. With many customers frustrated, Motorola is yet to officially state a reason behind the sudden backtrack of its words. ALSO READ: Moto G5S Plus Review: A slight edge over its predecessor

The list includes 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 and Moto G5S Plus.
