Update 18/09/17: Following an outpouring of frustration from Moto G4 Plus owners, Motorola has said it will in fact update the Moto G4 Plus to Oreo.
The company issued the following statement on its website.
“Since the time of posting this, we have learned of some errors in our marketing materials around Android O upgrades for moto g4 Plus. It’s our general practice for the moto g family to get one major OS upgrade per device, so it wasn’t originally planned for Android O. But it’s important to us we keep our promises, so in addition to the N upgrade it has already received, we will be upgrading moto g4 Plus to Android O. Because this is an unplanned upgrade, it will take some time to fit into our schedule, we’ll update our software upgrade page when we have more info.”
