Motorola Android 12 update roll out tracker [Cont. updated] | #firefox | #chrome | #microsoftedge

Here’s what this tracker is about in a quick video:

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…

Original story (published on March 07, 2021) follows:

Motorola recently started seeding the Android 11 update to the Motorola G Pro which made it the first device from the Lenovo-owned smartphone maker to bag the new Android version.

The update is gradually rolling out to Motorola G Pro units around the world and brings with it a bunch of new features that were introduced with Android 11.

The Motorola G Pro is the only device for which the update is available. Although, Motorola appears to be testing Android 11 on a bunch of devices including the Motorola One Action, One Hyper, and One Vision.

That said, once Android 11 goes live for these devices, Motorola smartphone users can then look forward to getting the update to Android 12.

Android 12 was recently released as a Developer Preview for the Pixel devices by Google. Since the update is meant for developers to begin optimizing their apps for the upcoming Android version, there aren’t many new features or improvements at the moment.

The Developer Preview program is scheduled to end in April after which Google will kick-start the public beta program for Android 12. During this period, some OEMs will also offer Android 12 in beta form for their flagships.

Android 12 release schedule

Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that we’ll see Motorola join Google to release the Android 12 beta for any of its devices since the company has strayed away from this practice in the past.

Motorola usually seeds two major OS updates to mid-range and flagship devices whereas the budget-friendly offerings get one major update.

With this information on hand, we’ve come up with a list of Motorola devices that we believe will be eligible for the update to Android 12. Check it out below:

– Motorola Edge
– Motorola Edge+
– Motorola Edge S
– Motorola Razr 5G
– Motorola G 5G

– Motorola G 5G Plus
– Motorola Moto G Power (2021)
– Motorola Moto G Stylus (2021)
– Motorola One 5G Ace
– Motorola One 5G

– Motorola One Fusion+
– Motorola One Fusion
– Motorola One Hyper
– Motorola Moto G Power
– Motorola Moto G Fast

– Motorola G10
– Motorola G10 Power
– Motorola G30

As for the Motorola G9 and G8 devices that come with Android 10 pre-installed, it’s unclear whether Motorola will seed Android 12 to these devices since the company has been rolling out only one major OS update to the G series in the past.

And since these devices run Android 10, the update to Android 11 may be the final major OS update these smartphones will get.

Motorola Android 12 release date

Motorola started seeding the Android 11 update roughly 4 months after Google rolled out the stable update for its Pixel devices.

So if Google sticks to its previous rollout timeline, we may see the first Motorola device get the Android 12 update in January 2022.

However, considering that most OEMs are steadily improving by pushing updates earlier than before, there’s a slight chance that we may see Android 12 make its way onto a Motorola smartphone before the end of the year.

Of course, we also expect to see the company begin the soak testing for the upcoming Android version ahead of the public rollout. Having said that, you can head to our dedicated tracker to know everything about Android 12.

Update 5 (December 30)

IST 12:04 pm: A Motorola admin has come out to clarify a few issues about how Motorola plans to roll out Android 12 to its devices.

Hello, I think there is some confusion surrounding the Android 12 announcement. We did say “Android 12 is currently undergoing beta testing with our Motorola Feedback Network, and our official Android 12 rollout will begin in February 2022.”

However, this doesn’t mean that every model on the list is going to get updated in Feb. It means we will start rolling out our first Android 12 updates in February. That being said, when it comes to beta testing, (if you haven’t already) I’d recommend signing up for our Motorola Feedback Network (MFN).

Hello everyone. As I previously mentioned there are no plans to release Android 12 for the edge 2020 model. However, that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to continue to support the phone with additional bug fixes on the Android 11 software.

We will continue to work to get improvements pushed out on the existing OS. I fully understand you want Android 12, but it’s not in the cards for this model. That being said, I am making sure the proper teams are hearing your feedback about not getting Android 12. (Source)
