Verizon Motorola Moto G Power gets Android 11 update
Motorola has been doing a decent job getting Android 11 to eligible devices from its portfolio. The Lenovo-owned smartphone maker has rolled out the update to around a dozen models already.
And if the company keeps up this pace, then we can expect to see Android 11 rollout for all its devices within the next few months.
That said, in the Android world, updates are usually rolled out in batches. Hence, the availability of software updates varies by the region as well as the carrier from which the device has been purchased.
Speaking of carriers, Verizon has confirmed that it, along with Motorola, has released the Android 11 update for the Moto G Power.
The unlocked models recently bagged the update in the U.S. and a few other countries. This new update is live for Verizon models with the software version RPM31.Q1-54-13.
Unlike the unlocked models that got the February security patch, the Verizon models are getting the April security patch.
