Android 11 for Motorola devices

Motorola Razr 5G, Motorola Razr 2019, Motorola Edge, Motorola Edge+, Motorola One 5G, Motorola One Action, Motorola One Fusion, Motorola One Fusion+, Motorola One Hyper, Motorola One Vision, Moto G 5G, Moto G 5G Plus, Moto G Fast, Moto G Power, Moto G Pro, Moto G Stylus, Moto G9, Moto G9 Play, Moto G9 Plus, Moto G9 Power, Moto G8, Moto G8 Power, and Lenovo K12 Note.
Surprisingly, some of the midrange devices from last year haven’t made it to the list. The Moto G8 Plus that launched last year isn’t present in this list. This means the device was only scheduled to get a single Android OS upgrade. Similarly, the Moto G8 Power Lite that launched in India earlier this summer also won’t make it to the update list. The Moto One Macro is also absent from this list, which is surprising as it was part of the Android One series from last year.
Nonetheless, it remains to be seen how soon Motorola starts releasing the update for these handsets in India. Premium devices such as the Razr 5G, Razr and Edge+ could get the update first, followed by the update Moto G series from this year as well as the One series phones. The 2019 models could take more time to get the update, given that these are already old.
