There are some mobile devices that have not been upgraded to the latest OS of Android, which is Android 7.0 Nougat. Some manufacturers are catching up on these updates that never hit certain mobile devices in some regions including Motorola for Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus.

This means that owners of Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus owners in India and Sony Xperia X Performance owners in Canada are expecting to download the latest Google software on their devices. Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are the first non-Google branded smartphones that received the update this year, October. However, users in India missed out on the update when it began in Brazil and quickly rolled out in other markets. Now, Android 7.0 Nougat can be download to their devices through security update over the air or they can manually check by accessing Settings > About Phone > Software Updates.

Furthermore, Canadian carrier Rogers also laid out a detailed announcement that Sony Xperia X Performance will update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, skipping the initial Android 7.0 Nougat version. This means that the update goes straight from Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The update will be available in February 2017. Sony started updating Xperia X Performance handsets in various markets such as Russia, Australia, and Latin America in November. However, there are carriers that often do not update to the most recent versions of software as it may contain more bug fixes.

There are also said smartphones that will skip the Android 7.0 Nougat version and will jump to the 7.1.1 update. Some of these smartphones include Google Pixel, Huawei, HTC, LG, Motorola, and OnePlus, among others.

Android 7.0 Nougat is the latest operating system from Google. This is already available for download in some of the largest and most used smartphones in the world such as Sony, Samsung, and HTC.
