Motorola receiving Android 8.1 Oreo Update
Lenovo launched the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus in India early last year, and at that time, they were running on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. Now, the two phones are finally receiving the long overdue Android 8.1 Oreo update, and the first ones to receive it are users in India, Brazil, and Mexico.
The new Android 8.1 Oreo update brings along new features like adaptive icons, new Settings menu, Picture in Picture (PiP) mode, autofill APIs, new multi-tasking features, more efficient notification controls, improved data saver, battery features, new power menu UI and Bluetooth improvements. The update also brings along a host of bug fixes and stability improvements.
Meanwhile, Motorola is now teasing the arrival of the Moto G6 Plus in India, with the launch event set for September 10. Motorola had announced the Moto G6 lineup in Brazil that included two other smartphones – Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play – both of which had already been launched in India in June.
