The two-year old Moto G4 Play is now getting the Android Nougat update. With this, once again Motorola showed that how much it cares it devices. The latest update is in stark contrast to what other phone makers’ practices – most often do not bother to offer the latest OS update for their older phones especially for the cheaper ones.
Along with the update, users will also get the latest Android security update.
Launched in 2016, the Motorola Moto G4 Play comes with a 5-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) HD display with water repellent nano-coating. It is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) processor, which is clubbed with Adreno 306 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, and has an optional expandable memory slot of 128GB capacity. The smartphone comes packed with a 2800 mAh battery.
The Moto G4 Play sports an 8-megapixel shooter with LED flash light on its back, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera in the front. The rear camera has Æ’/2.2 aperture, Tap (anywhere) to capture, 4X digital zoom, Burst mode, Auto HDR, Panorama, Drag to focus & exposure, and 1080p HD video (30 fps) recording features. Further, the smartphone offers Dual SIM, 4G LTE, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.1, GPS/A-GPS, Accelerometer, Proximity and Ambient Light sensors. The handset measures 144.4 x 72 x 8.95-9.9 mm and weighs around 137 grams.
The Moto G4 and G4 Plus had received the Android N update last year itself. Motorola had earlier also confirmed to launch the Android Oreo for G4 Plus too.
