After receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat in January, although in most European countries was not given until last month, the Lenovo Moto Z Play has been confirmed to receive also the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It has been through a chat, in fact, where a representative of the Chinese company has insured it. As a sample, we leave you an image with an excerpt from the talk, which took place between an user and the Indian helpdesk. Here you can see that the manager of Lenovo confirming that the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat will reach the Lenovo Moto Z Play, although at the moment it is not possible to say with certainty when.
Android 7.1.1 Nougat, the latest version of Android in Moto Z Play
In any case, it is possible to think that the Moto Z Play will receive the update to Android 7.1.1 in the coming weeks, not only for the confirmation given by the company spokesman, also because it seems that this update is following a similar pattern in all the major smartphones of Android device manufacturers. Therefore, the upgrade could start soon in Europe, and then gradually in other regions, over time, and could happen in a period of at least a couple of months.
This increases the number of devices that are receiving the latest version of the green robot, since at this time version 7.1.2 is only officially available for the Pixel and some Nexus, where for the moment has given some errors related to the fingerprint reader of these devices, although apparently is not a widespread problem, but in any case something serious for affected users. In case your smartphone is not going to receive updates to the latest version of Android, remember that there are ROMs customized for non-compatible devices, and maybe yours is part of the fortunate so far forgotten.
