Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility has announced the official Android 9 Pie update rollout for the Moto G6 Plus in India. The Moto G6 Plus, which is the most premium among the trio of Moto G devices launched in 2018, is now receiving the Android Pie update in India. If you’re a Moto G6 Plus user in India, you’ve probably already received the update, and if not, you should be getting it soon enough.
Motorola has shared the complete change-log as well as steps that you can take to manually install the update on its official website.
As expected, the update brings a slew of features to the Moto G6 Plus. Considering that Pie is a major software release – and not just an incremental upgrade – it brings visible changes to the phone in question with regards to the operating system. The biggest being an all-new gesture-based navigation system.
“Android 9.0 Pie improves your mobile experience from the new intuitive navigation and recent app, an improved do not disturb mode and a colourful settings menu, to anticipated longer battery life and revamped split screen,” Motorola notes in the change-log.
The update brings improved RAM and adaptive battery management, as well as adaptive display that can automatically tweak screen settings depending on available light, in turn also aiding in saving battery life. The update also bumps the Android security patch to December 1, 2018 among other things. You can read the complete change-log here.
The Moto G6 Plus Android Pie update comes weeks after Motorola rolled out the update for its Android One-backed Moto One Power phone in India. The Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play, which are more affordable versions of the Moto G6 Plus, are also in line to get the Android Pie update although Motorola is yet to announce an exact time-frame for the same.
In other news, Motorola is gearing to launch its next-generation Moto G7 line-up in Brazil in February 2019. Rumour has it that Motorola may launch as many as four devices in the Moto G7 line-up, namely, the Moto G7, the Moto G7 Play, the Moto G7 Plus and the Moto G7 Power.
