Motorola has promised multi-yearly Android updates. Apparently, it won’t happen


Motorola returns to the promise made to consumers, regarding the provision of Android updates and more than a year after the time of purchase, for all smartphone products in the offer.

The truth of revealed, apparently, from an escape of company officials, confirming that the top of the range Motorola Edge 20 will benefit from only one major update for the Android version. And since Google’s schedule for major Android revisions is an annual one, it’s easy to deduce that Motorola’s promise for multi-yearly Android updates was just a marketing promise, meanwhile forgotten.

Faced with the obviously unfavorable revelations about the brand image and the company’s previous position, Motorola returns with the following clarifications:

Motorola reiterated that the official who promised bi-monthly security updates for the Edge 20 series was wrong. Thus, the Motorola Edge 20 Pro, Edge 20 and Edge 20 Lite models will receive at least 2 major updates of the Android operating system and 2 years of bi-monthly security updates. These devices are protected by ThinkShield for mobile, which provides additional security protection. Essential features can also be updated through the PlayStore, which allows us to provide key updates more often. Users can rely on ongoing support for software features such as new My UX experiences, new camera features, and new Ready For experiences, depending on hardware compatibility.

In the previous form, the company’s position was that Android updates were only open to the re-evaluation of each smartphone model, determining whether supporting a new Android revision is justifiable from the perspective of the popularity of that model.

However, Google’s position is that all Android-based devices should receive updates for at least two years after the initial release.
