Moto G5 and G5 Plus finally start receiving Android Oreo update

Vlad, 06 September 2018

Although Google has released Android 9 Pie for its Pixels last month, some smartphones are only now seeing updates to the previous version of the OS - Oreo. Case in point: Motorola's Moto G5 and G5 Plus. These devices launched last spring, with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, and now they're finally ready to jump to Oreo.

There's a catch, however. Currently, the Oreo update's rollout for the Moto G5 is only happening in Mexico. The Moto G5 Plus is getting the new version in India and Brazil only. And even in these countries, the rollouts are phased, so it may take at least a few days for them to reach every single device.

Motorola promises that other regions will get the update in the future, but offers no other details. So if your Moto G5 isn't from Mexico, or your G5 Plus isn't from India or Brazil, then the wait for Oreo definitely isn't over for you.
