The Moto Z2 Force, one of the earliest 5G-capable phones (well, with some help), is getting Android 9 Pie on Verizon starting today. "System Update 12," as Verizon and Moto are calling it, brings Pie, Motorola software version PCX29.159-21, and the June Android security patch.
Some Z2 Force owners in Brazil started getting the Android 9 update early last month as part of a soak test, but Lenovo later announced that the device would only be updated on Verizon because it had to be to use the 5G Moto Mod.
So, when this update first landed, we thought it was bringing the Z2 Force compatibility with the 5G Moto Mod on Verizon. But now Motorola's got a fresh blog post up claiming that 5G support is arriving "starting this week."
According to Verizon it was already available, but in any case — should be working fine now.
