While the Android P 9.0 is the latest version of Android and is now available as a Developer Preview 1, there are a lot of devices still waiting for the Android Oreo update. We have many OEMs updating their devices to Android Oreo. However, most of them are flagship devices. The only budget/non-Android One device, except Nokia devices, that’s promised to get Android Oreo is the Moto G5 series, which is still waiting for the Android Oreo roll out.
And as per new info via Motorola Fans India twitter page, it is said that the Moto G5S Plus, Moto G5 Plus, and the other Moto G5 phones will get the Android Oreo 8.0 update after the launch of the Moto G6 2018 series. Motorola is set to unveil the Moto G6 Series of devices on 19th April in Sao Paulo in Brazil. And after a few weeks, we should see an India and US launch as well followed by the European launch of the Moto G6 series.

After that, Motorola might start to roll out the much-awaited Android Oreo 8.0 update. This could be due to the fact that the Moto G6 is already coming with Android Oreo 8.0 or Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box, and if the Moto G5 series is running on the Oreo by then, then it might not be great for the Moto G6 series as most people won’t see the new devices much of an upgrade on the software front.
If you aren’t aware, the Moto G6 series this time will pack the infamous Moto Voice feature which was earlier only available on flagship Moto Phones. And the evidence lies in the leaked listings which were briefly, spotted on Amazon UK, which mentioned some key features for the Moto G6 line-up.
