Motorola had previously said that its Moto G4 range of handsets would get the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Now it would appear that the company has changed their mind. Last week we saw a list of Motorola devices that are scheduled to get the update, the G4 was not on the list.
A number of people have posted on Reddit about Motorola previously confirming that the update is coming to the G4 and now the company appears to be backtracking on what it said previously.
According to Android Police, Motorola confirmed previously on a number of occasions that the Moto G4 smartphones would get the Android 8.0 Oreo software update.
This is really fucked up. I still remember when Motorola launched the Moto G4 promising to update to Android O. Wonder why they don’t. https://t.co/xWXgNxLohZ

As yet there are no official details from Motorola on why the company has decided not to update their G4 range of handsets to the next version of Android, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.
