Motorola was once one of the fastest companies pushing Android updates. But that was several years ago in the times of the first Moto G series smartphones. The company has changed a lot in terms of rolling timely updates and usually takes several months to roll out newer Android releases. This year, the company already pushed the Android 11 update for some of its most recent smartphones. Now, Verizon’s Motorola One 5G UW is getting the same treatment.
The Motorola One 5G UW was announced last October with Android 10. The company didn’t manage to bring the smartphone with Android 11 since Google released it one month before. Six months have passed, and the company is finally adding the latest goodies in smartphones. For instance, we get things such as One-Time permissions for location and microphone, revamped notifications with separate conversation sections, chat bubbles, new UI elements, and more. The update also brings March 2021 Android security patch and bumps the version number to RPN31.Q1-51-30-1.
Worth noting that the update is rolling out in a gradual manner. The owners of the Motorola One 5G UW will be receiving a notification to install the OTA update. If you haven’t received it yet, you can try your luck force checking the firmware update. You can head to Settings >> About phone >> System updates menu. If you’re patient, you can just sit and relax that the update will be coming for you eventually.
