Motorola has silently removed all references to its Moto G4 Oreo update promise

Motorola recently revealed a list of smartphones that it said would receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Notably missing from the list was the Moto G4 series, not only because it is not even 18 months old at this point, but also because Motorola had explicitly promised Oreo update for these devices.

And now, it has come to light that the company has even silently removed all references to its Moto G4 Oreo update promise. Here’s the first proof – on left is part of the original Moto G4 poster promising both Android N and O updates, and on the right is the updated poster, that just promises Android N.

Moving on, following is a YouTube video of the phone’s listing on Amazon India. The video was uploaded in May 2016, when the device was brand new. If you pause the video at 1:02, you’ll again see the Android O update promise.
