Motorola releases pie for Moto G6+ and Moto Z3, adds support for 5G mod

Peter, 23 January 2019

Motorola has started rolling out Android 9 Pie to two more of its phones. The Moto Z3 is getting the typical Pie features and the January 1 security patch. You can read the full change log for more details. There's a detailed breakdown of the features here.

The most interesting addition is support for the 5G MotoMod, which will make this one of the very first 5G-connected phones (weíve only seen hotspots and routers so far). It will work on Verizonís network. The mod itself isnít available yet and 5G networks are live in only a few cities.

The Moto G6+ also makes the jump to Pie, the update has already reached users in Brazil. Note that the security patch on this one is older, December 1.
