Moto G7 Series Android 10 Update and More

Motorola is not really the most generous OEM on the market whenever it comes to bringing software updates to older devices. However, usually, they are really good at keeping their newest smartphones up to date as well. In this section, we will take a look at the company’s latest mid-range devices, the Moto G7, Moto G7 Plus, Moto G7 Play, and also the Moto G7 Power. And discuss each and everything related to upcoming/recently released software updates, Android 10, and much more in many regions. Such as the US carriers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon as well. We are going to discuss Moto G7 Series Android 10 Update and More.

Specifications of Moto G Series

Well, the Moto G series continues to wow fans of the budget segment along with its relentless pursuit of greatness at affordable pricing. The Moto G7 specifications are more solid than what we basically got on the Moto G6 series. Along with all three variants that are coming to the U.S. They basically share the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor. However, with a few tweaks here and there in order to help justify their price tags.

Unfortunately, none of these phones actually supports NFC connectivity, but this does not really negate the fact that they are pretty great pieces of hardware. Well, below are actually the specifications of the standard Motorola Moto G7.

  • 6.2-inch 19:9 FHD+ (2,270 x 1,080) display along with a water-drop notch
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 octa-core processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB storage, expandable up to 512GB
  • Dual 12MP + 5MP rear camera
  • 8MP front-facing camera
  • 3000mAh battery
  • Android 9 Pie
  • Extras: Bluetooth 4.2, 3.5mm audio jack, also USB Type-C, Rear-mounted FPS, Face unlocking, 15W TurboPower fast charging, as well.

Moto G7 Series Android 10 Update and More

Well, the Moto G6 and Moto G5 may miss out on the upcoming Android release (formerly Android Q). However, the G7 users should get a taste of Android 10 sooner instead of later. All G7 phones basically come along with Android 9 Pie out of the box, and with Motorola making sure at least one major Android OS update. Users can afford to look forward to the upcoming Google OS release actually.

Motorola normally does not really change things too much, that preserve Android’s pristine form. But, that does not necessarily guarantee superfast updates actually.

When will Moto G7 be getting the Android 10 update?

  • May 04: Android 10 is actually rolling out to Moto G7 Play as part of the company’s soak test. (You can download and install the soak test build at your own risk)
  • April 08: Users of G7 Plus in the UK are now receiving Android 10 actually
  • March 10: Moto G7 Plus users in Australia are getting Android 10 on their units as well
  • January 23: G7 Plus received Android 10 now
  • G7, G7 Play, and G7 Power are expected to get Android 10 in Q2 2020 as well

Well, the Android 10 update will be the first and also the last OS update for the Moto G7 series actually. That basically includes standard Moto G7, Moto G7 Plus, Moto G7 Play, and also Moto G7 Power as well.

Please note here that the release date will differ for the many Moto G7 handsets. We also expect the standard Moto G7 and Moto G7 Plus will get the update soon. However, it may take an age before the Android 10 update shows up for the G7 Power and G7 Play actually. We saw something the same happen along with the Moto G6 Play last year. And even though it may not sound fair, but it is a standard for Motorola.

What’s new in Moto G7 Android 10 update

The Android 10 update from Google basically comes with a lot of new features. Such as Dark mode, improved Gestures Navigation, better Sharing Menu, Live Caption, Bubbles, better Permissions management, Accent Colors and also Themes, and much more.

Yes… the Moto G7 will get all of these features, and then some more that Motorola may also add on its own. No info on Motorola’s Android 10 update has been leaked so far actually. Unlike Samsung’s S10 Android 10 update as well. Hence we don’t have any idea about what Motorola plans to add in order to the stock Android 10 update.

UI-wise although, it would retain the stock Android 10 UI, and that’s a really good thing. Most of the people buy Moto phones for this very solid reason.
