Motorola Android Pie device update list unveiled

Motorola Android Pie device update list unveiled

It's highly likely that only the eight devices listed above will ever see Android 9 updates.

Google's Android Wear OS has been hit and miss for many people and some of that comes down to the quality of apps. Having said that, after announcing Android 9.0 Pie, Google has now announced Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) which succeeds Android Oreo (Go Edition) that was announced previous year in December.

In fact, Motorola is still slowly delivering Android 8.0 Oreo to a few more Moto phones. With Android Go, users will find that the OS takes significantly less amount of space than even Android Nougat, which released before Oreo.

This is set to launch for Wear OS watch owners at first - it may even be a big selling point for the rumored Google Pixel Watch - but it'll also come to phone devices in a more limited capacity. The latest smartphone to launch with Android Go out of the box is the Nokia 1.

Similar to the Oreo (Go edition), the Pie (Go edition) is meant to run smoothly on devices with an HD or regular VGA screen, up to 4/ 8/16GB of storage and 3G or 4G support.


Google says first wave of devices running Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) will hit the market "later this fall".

Right now we have no information regarding a potential Android P or Android 9 Pie beta for Motorola smartphones. Other features of Android 9 Pie are New Quick Settings UI design, Redesigned volume slider, Advanced Battery with AI Support, Notch Support, Improved Adaptive Brightness, Manual theme selection, Android Dashboard which Google calls Digital Wellbeing, and more other features.

Android 9 Pie for Android Go phones also promises quicker booting times and brings verified boot which when enabled, asks for authentication on startup. Security and data plans savings have also been enhanced, giving you greater boot-time and Play Store security, and better control over your data plan consumption.

Assistant Go: The Google Assistant for Android (Go edition) is your own personal assistant, always ready to help you get things done on-the-go.
