I have a Moto E4 Plus running Android 7.1.1. Is it possible to update to 8.1 and does Republic Wireless support this. Where are instructions for accomplishing this?
Good Morning @phyllism.y4pqsf,
The short answer is no. The decision rests with Motorola not Republic as the manufacturer decides. More here: Where's My Android Update? Understanding the Update Process.
in other words
looks like no plans but subject to change
Rule of thumb on Android updates is
- 2 Major updates and 3 years of security updates on Flagship models,
- 1 Major Update and 2 years of security update on Mid-line Models,
- no Major updates and a year of security updates(sometime) on budget models,
The Moto E4 (or E4+) are budget models for Motorola,
Moto G line are Motorola’s Mid-line models,
Moto X and Moto Z lines are Motorola’s Flagship models
here is Motorola’s Software update checker
