Motorola have always been one of the faster companies to provide version updates for their Android handsets and they are set to continue this in the future. Today they have announced that they will be rolling out Android 9.0 Pie to their Moto x4 handsets beginning today.

With Android 9.0 Pie Moto x4 users will be able to experience the new Android UI with a “redesigned Quick Settings” and a “revamped split screen”. Included in the update is the controversial new “intuitive” navigation buttons along with volume controls that go deeper but at the same time are easier to use. Motorola are also updating their cameras to include a panorama feature and better low light photography.

At the same time Motorola have not forgotten their older handsets with Android 9.0 Pie set to roll out to the following phones “soon”:

  • moto z3 play
  • moto z2 play
  • moto g6 plus
  • moto g6
  • moto g6 play

The Motorola Android software is basically Android One with a few other Motorola tweaks so you are getting one of the better Android experiences available with Android 9.0 Pie on a Motorola device.

For more information on Android 9.0 Pie head on over to the Google Blog page and start hitting the check for updates button on your phone — let us know in the comments when your update arrives.

I always forget about split screen in Android…

Like the look of the rumoured Moto Z4 that there were CAD renders of last week, could be onto a winner there baby
