Motorola Moto x4 gets the android update

We all knew that the android update was bound to happen but what one did not expect was that Motorola would be rolling out the android 8.1 update right away. Motorola is rolling out the android 8.1 update for its x4 model and it is expected that others would soon follow suit with their own respective phones.  The surprising fact is that the rollout is happening right away, over the air; the motoX4 update is due to take place in batches where the android 8.1 oreo update is expected to be rolled out over-the-air. You can expect a few changes to be implemented right away, starting with the build number. With this update to your moto x4, you can now expect your build number to change to OPW28.1.

Here’s what you can expect with the update, a new icon revamp for the app, along with a new power menu and a new shade for notifications. But the interesting part about the update that you can look forward to is the Google pixel wallpaper dark mode which should certainly help make things interesting. 



Your phone should receive auto updates over the air and once it gets it, it will prompt you to install the same. But incase that is not happening, you can search online for the same and get the updates installed manually.

 All you need to do is to head over to settings, and check under about for the ‘system update’ and click on ‘check on updates’.  This should prompt your phone to search for the android update, and once it locates the same, follow the instructions to get the same installed right away.  Depending on the size of the update, you may have to use your Wi-Fi update to get the same installed without any hitch.


moto x4 android updates


Moto X4 was released last year and it comes with a touch screen of 5.2 inch with HD display and an image resolution of 1080 X 1920 pixels. The phone comes with 4 GB ram as well as an internal storage of 64 GB which can be expanded to 200 GB by using data cards. It also comes with a 2.2 Ghz octa core processor and is quite fast which makes the current update all the more important. Out of the box it runs or until recently on android 7 nougat and came loaded with two cameras, a 12 MP rear camera and a 16 MP front facing camera.

You may even notice a marked improvement in performance as these updates are rolled out but you will have to wait till you get the same installed to find out.  Please do not forget to check for updates regularly, the update to your moto x4 should be here at any moment. You should be able to expect your phone to become faster and process more information within a shorter time frame than before. Well, it certainly looks like everything is shaking  up as far as MotoX4 is concerned and  one hopes that the update is for the better.
