Moto Z4 Android 10 update might be around the corner; Moto Z3 Play & Z2 Force receive new OTA
Android 10 was unveiled in September, and since then, OEMs have geared up for the rollout of the latest OS for their devices. In fact, smartphone manufacturers like OnePlus and Essential pushed the update on the day of its release following the footsteps of Google.
Later on, other OEMs also started to push Android 10 either via beta or stable channel for compatible devices. Motorola might also join this bandwagon as reportedly, Moto Z4 is receiving a software update via Motorola Feedback Network.
Not only this. Motorola has also pushed new updates for the Moto Z3 Play and Z2 Force, where the former gets the September security patch while the latter gets stability improvements. Let us take a look at the updates, one by one.
In layman’s terms, the Motorola Feedback Network (MFN) is more of a pilot survey designed by the company. Through which, they learn about the experience of the users about a specific update before wider rollout.
To recall, the Moto Z4 was launched in June 2019 and it is slated to receive Android 10 in the future. According to users on Reddit, the new MFN notification might be related to a beta update for Android 10. Moreover, the official statement kinda points the same:
We are inviting owners of the Moto Z4 Retail US to participate in an early preview of a new software release and provide feedback.
Well, there is no concrete information on whether this update is bringing in Android 10 or not. We will keep you in the loop once we have more info on this regard.
