Android 8.1 Oreo rolling out to the Amazon Prime and retail Moto X4

Android 8.1 Oreo rolling out to the Amazon Prime and retail Moto X4

Amazon's Prime Edition phones don't have ads anymore, but there is some Amazon bloat that can affect updates. However, Amazon and Moto have managed to keep the retail and Prime versions in sync. About a month after the Android 8.1 update hit the Android One Moto X4, the Amazon and retail versions are getting the OTA (version OPW28.2).

[Update: Winners] Win one of three unlocked Moto G6s from Ting and Android Police [US]

Motorola has long been king of the mid-range selection here in the US, and the new Moto G6 continues that trend, mixing impressive specs like a 5.7" 1080p 18:9 display, dual-camera system, and Android 8.0 Oreo with an affordable price. That's why Ting and Android Police are teaming up to give away three brand new, unlocked Moto G6 phones.

[Deal Alert] Motorola discounting Moto X4 to $300 ($100 off), Moto G5S Plus 64GB to $250 ($100 off), and more

Moto Z3 Play announced with Snapdragon 636 and dual cameras, comes bundled with battery Moto Mod for $499

Lenovo-owned Motorola hasn't exactly set the world alight with the modular accessories made for its Moto Z line, yet here is the first of the 3rd generation in the much-maligned phone range. For better or worse, Moto is going to make a real go of these Moto Mods, and in a bid to get them into people's hands, the new Moto Z3 Play will even come bundled with an unsolicited Moto Power Pack mod.

Moto Z Play update to Android 8.0 Oreo is starting to roll out in India

Moto Z Play update to Android 8.0 Oreo is starting to roll out in India

Lenovo-owned Motorola isn't always that fast when it comes to updating the OS of its older phones. It took a critical post from us late last year to get the company to honor its promise of releasing an 8.0 Oreo update for the Moto G4, for example. The Moto Mod-compatible Z Play from 2016 received Android 7.1.1 Nougat last summer, and now it's finally getting Oreo.

New Moto G6 series could be announced April 19th in Brazil

New Moto G6 series could be announced April 19th in Brazil

Motorola is yet to launch a new phone in 2018, a further sign that the once thriving OEM is becoming less and less relevant in the mobile industry. While the successor to last year's poorly-received Moto X4 has apparently been scrapped, we know that new Moto G devices are on the way, likely to go on sale in mid-May. Now we have a potential date for the launch.

According to an invitation sent to Android Pit, the Lenovo-owned company is having an event on April 19th in São Paulo, Brazil. There's no information about which specific devices will be announced, and it's entirely possible that this could be a Brazil-specific event for something completely different.

Motorola is more at risk of becoming irrelevant than ever - can it be saved?

Motorola is more at risk of becoming irrelevant than ever - can it be saved?

Motorola is in trouble. As it has been, frankly, for much of the past five-plus years. The Lenovo-owned smartphone brand once known for its positively prodigious portfolio hasn't announced a new phone in well over six months. That was the Moto X4, which got a mixed reception and has gone on discount so frequently of late that it seems poor sales are probably a given (granted, it's horrendously overpriced). But the X4 was never really competitive in its segment, and its reason for existence remains something of a mystery to me.

Motorola to release a VR headset Mod that's probably just a Daydream viewer

Motorola to release a VR headset Mod that's probably just a Daydream viewer

Motorola has been pushing Moto Mods for its Z-series phones over the last few years, but few of the Mods have been any good. Serial leaker Evan Blass just outed an upcoming Moto Mod that will most likely continue that tradition. The Motorola Virtual Viewer is billed as a Mod, but it'll probably just be another Daydream headset.
