Moto Z2 Force is only getting Android 9 Pie on Verizon, despite past promises

Vlad, 27 June 2019

Last year Motorola promised it would bring Android 9 Pie to all models of the Moto Z2 Force - including those sold by AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

If you're wondering about any updates on this long overdue rollout, the news is anything but good. Reneging on its earlier promise, Motorola now says only the Verizon version of the Z2 Force is to ever taste Android Pie. Here's the company's full official statement on the matter:

Delivering any Android upgrade is a complex process. For a variety of reasons, some US Moto Z2 Force models will not receive the Android 9 "Pie" update. The Moto Z2 Force model sold by Verizon will receive Pie as it is necessary to enable the 5G Moto Mod. We are committed to providing two years of Android security updates on all Moto Z2 force devices. While we always caution that our update plans may change, Motorola regrets any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause our loyal consumers.

So if you're on Verizon and rocking a Moto Z2 Force, it looks like you have the 5G MotoMod to thank for the fact that you will still get Pie - though at this rate, who knows when. We're less than two months away from the launch of Android 10 Q, which clearly you won't be receiving on your Z2 Force. At all. Ever.
