Motorola after taking its own sweet time for developing the most stable version of Android Oreo 8.1 after several months is, at last, rolling it out in Brazil, where the American holds the top position. Reports suggest that most Brazilian Moto G5s Plus are already running Oreo 8.1 and after that, the phase of the update should shift to the Indian, the US and European markets as well in the coming days.
The new update also brings the Latest August Security patched baked within it and should take care of any vulnerabilities found in Android. You also get all the Oreo 8.1 goodies such as the picture in picture mode, dark mode, improved doze, auto-fill text box and much more.
This will be the last update for the Moto G5S+, and the device won’t receive any significant updates any further. However, it will continue to receive Android Security updates for two years. Until now there haven’t been any complaints regarding the new update, in-fact the Soak test update of Oreo 8.1 was earlier reported to provide excellent battery life on the Moto G5s+. So, the stable version won’t differ from that. Now that the soak tests are done, and the Official stable updates are out, be patient until the update starts showing up in your region.
You can keep checking for the update manually by heading over to Settings > About Phone > System Software Update. Remember that such updates do not arrive on all devices at the same time and slowly move in phases as per the server’s capacity is designated.
