Recently, Motorola released a statement saying that some of its devices won't get the security updates.
Motorola yesterday revealed the list of devices which would receive Android 7.0 Nougat update. Unfortunately, it seems the recently launched Moto E3 power is not supposed to receive the update. Shockingly, Moto E3 Power is not even a month older.
According to the list that has been released Moto G (4th Gen), Moto G Plus (4th Gen), Moto G Play (4th Gen), Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto X Force, Droid Turbo 2, Droid Maxx 2, Moto Z, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Play Droid and Nexus 6 will get the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
Recently, Motorola had also released another statement saying that some of its devices won't get the security updates. The reason for this as claimed by Motorola was increasing Moto smartphones in a budget segment, which seems a bit strange.
The Moto E3 Power comes with smudge proof screen and water repellent nano coating. It features a 5-inch HD (1280x720p) IPS display and is powered by a 1.0GHz quad-core Mediatek (MTK6735) processor. It comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be further expandable upto 128GB via micro SD card. The smartphone comes packed with 3500 mAh battery. The Moto E3 Power runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. The phone has an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera, a rear LED flashlight and a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies and video chats. Besides, the smartphone offers Dual SIM, 4G/LTE, WiFi, GPS, a micro USB port, and a Rear ported speaker (1W).
Moto E3 Power though decently designed still offers mediocre specifications at a price point of Rs 7,999. With the competitors like Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime, it was already hard for Moto E3 Power to stand in the budget segment. On top of this, the confirmation of Motorola's decision to not update the Moto E3 Power has only added further difficulties. Lenovo is certainly not taking Motorola in a right direction.
