[Stable version rolling out] Motorola Moto G7 Plus Android 10 update soak test going on in Brazil (Download link inside)

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on January 9, 2020) follows:

Ever since Motorola was taken over from Google by Lenovo back in 2014, it has all been a mixed bag, to say the very least.

There is no doubt this change of ownership did nothing to stray Motorola from making some of the best budget phones like the Moto G8 Plus, but over time, the company keeps lagging behind when it comes to delivering speedy Android updates.

To date, Motorola has managed to upgrade only three of its devices to the latest Android 10 OS. Matter of fact, the devices in question are all part of Android One and going by the program’s standards, the OS still delayed to roll out.


It started with the Moto One Power and then came the Moto One Vision. More recently, the Moto One Action received the update as well and in fact, folks in Brazil seem to have had access to the Moto G7 Plus Android 10 update for a while now.

From the look of things, the incoming Moto G7 Plus Android 10 update isn’t the first build the device is receiving in Brazil. Apparently, the initial version arrived as build number QPW30.61-5 and bundled the November 2019 security patch.

As of this writing, those who already had the first Android 10 build on the Moto G7 Plus are now receiving another update as version QPW30.61-21, this time with a newer December 2019 security patch.

As it stands, this is just another beta update (soak test) for the G7 Plus and not the stable version, although it’s an early sign that the final build isn’t too far away.
