Future Update Potential

Is there a way to know if a phone you want to purchase will continue to receive updates? I have a MOTO G4 which i have learned is going to remain with Android 7.0 (Nougat) and is not going to receive any more updates. I would like to avoid that with a future purchase.

The Google Pixel series is probably the best Android phone for regular updates. Their policy can be found at:


Samsung recently announced select Galaxy devices would receive 3 generations of Android OS upgrades (but left themselves some wiggle room in the fine print at the bottom of the release):

It’s not very often I praise Microsoft, but I have a computer that is 10 years old and still gets updates to Windows 10. I don’t understand why cell phones have to have such a short lifespan. (No need to reply)
