Motorola has announced its list of smartphones that will receive the Android 11 upgrade presumably starting as soon as tomorrow but, more practically, throughout 2021. There will be pitfalls along the way as we find out which devices are gasping their last breaths and the technicalities getting in the way of others.
The popular Energy Ring app, which gives you a pretty ingenious and fun battery indicator around the so-called "punch-hole" camera cutout, was just updated with support for twelve new phones, including two technically unreleased ones. Additions include the Xiaomi Mi 10 and 10 Pro, Huawei Honor 20 and P40 Lite, and the Motorola Edge and Edge+ — those last two you can't even buy until May 14th, though we've confirmed the app does work.
The Android One-equipped Motorola One Vision unfortunately never made it to the US, but owners in South America, Europe, India, and other markets can look forward to an update bringing Android 10 to the phone. It's currently rolling out to first people in Brazil, though it probably won't take long until it reaches more locations.
The extensivelyleaked Motorola One Vision is official, and it looks like the leaks were dead-on. This Exynos-powered phone sports a super-tall 21:9 display with a hole-punch camera, and it runs Google's Android One build of the OS. You won't be able to buy it in the US, but Motorola will sell it in many other markets.
What's next from Motorola? As we leave behind the Moto G7 series, we're left in a holding pattern for what might be a foldable phone that will bring up the legacy RAZR name. It's been a month since we last heard anything about the speculative project, but we now have some evidence from the Bluetooth SIG that there is at least a RAZR phone in the works along with a potential Android One phone.
