Highlights include a selfie portrait mode for all Motorola devices now, AR stickers for the Moto Z3 and Z3 Play, and a nifty watermarking feature.

[Update: For real this time] Android 8.1 Oreo rolling out to Moto G5S Plus

Remember the Moto G5S Plus, the strangely-named almost-flagship that debuted about nine months ago? We haven't heard much about it for a while, but according to Motorola's support page, it's now receiving its Android 8.1 Oreo update. That means that it's skipping 8.0 Oreo, which comes as something of a surprise given Lenovorola's update reputation.

Moto G5S Plus kernel source code for Android 8.1 Oreo is out

All manufacturers are required by the GPL to release the kernel source code whenever there's a change to it, which usually happens when a major update is pushed. The Moto G5S Plus, codenamed 'sanders,' has been waiting for its Oreo update for quite a while now, but with news of a soak test occurring in Brazil and this 8.1 Oreo source code's release, it looks like it may be coming soon.

[Deal Alert] Moto G5S Plus on sale for $229.99 (32GB, $50 off) and $274.99 (64GB, $75 off)

Motorola's flagship phones are a bit of a tough sell with all the pricey Moto Mods, but its budget lineup is compelling. It's even more compelling today with a sale on the Moto G5S Plus. That phone usually starts at $280, but it's $50-75 less today.

Moto G5S Plus review: Steadily advancing on flagship territory, but it's not clear why

It's been a few years since the Motorola that we knew and loved was replaced by what I like to call Lenovorola. Gone are the quick updates, Moto Maker, and a lot of other things that made Motorola great; instead, we now have a ton of different models, super slow (or potentially nonexistent) updates, and strange-looking camera bumps.

Moto G5S Plus now up for pre-order in the US for $229.99

Motorola went ahead and befuddled everyone last month when it announced a small upgrade to its G5/G5 Plus with the newer G5S and G5S Plus, then revealed there were two versions: one for the US without NFC and one for Europe with NFC, and then clarified that only the Plus would come to the US. Now that day has come and the G5S Plus is up for pre-order in the US on several sites.

The price is reduced for a limited period of time (except on Frys): the 3GB/32GB version can be had for $229.99 instead of $279.99 and the 4GB/64GB version is down from $349.99 to $299.99.

[Update: Moto X4 too] Motorola reveals the Moto Z and Moto G devices that will get Android Oreo, G4 series excluded

Back in the days when the Moto X could be used with one hand and Moto Maker was a cool new thing, Motorola was one of the best manufacturers with software updates. Since their skin is so minimal, anything else would be disappointing. But Motorola is not what it once was, and it's fallen behind in terms of software support. The Lenovo-owned company has just released its update roadmap for Android 8.0 Oreo.
