Motorola smartphones used to be one of the first devices to get the latest Android updates, but with time progress the fact has changed. Previously there have been lots of confusions regarding the Moto G8 Plus Android 10 Update, but then the brand stepped in and clarified that it will be receiving the Android 10 Update. With that, Now the Moto G8 Plus has started receiving the Android 10 update in Italy.
While the initial reports hinted towards a July rollout of the update, which only seems to have been rolled out in certain countries or devices, this development seems to be right on time. Additionally. the update has been pending partner approval for a while hinting that the update is almost ready. However, we do expect the same update to arrive for the users of India, some users in Spain have already received the update carrying the software version QPI30.28-Q3-28 and bringing the Secuirtty Patch. Still, we don’t have the complete changelog but, the changes mentioned include majorly the security patch for July 2020.
This is a stable build and not a beta, and hence so we recommend users to update their device to this build as soon as possible. The update is based on Android 10 Q. Similar to all the other updates, this OTA update is rolling out in Spain over the air. This is a planned rollout so it may take some time to be available in all handsets.
For changes, The update brings software optimization and promises to provide a better user experience. Along with all the optimizations, it also improves the security and performance of the device while bumping up the software version. It also addresses many bugs which were reported in the previous build.
