Google has come a long way since the early days when it struggled to convince the world that its friendly green extraterrestrial could make applesauce of the revolutionary i Phone.
In truth, Google's first Android phone, the HTC-made T-Mobile G1, wasn't much to look at when it debuted in October 2008, with its trough for a keyboard and its bizarrely jutting chin.
HTC was hardly a known brand, and we weren't even sure if we were getting a single Google phone or an entire operating system.
Still the humble G1, with its ugly design and few apps, kicked off an Android avalanche just the same.
Lenovo has now officially confirmed that Moto G4 Play devices in the US will receive the long awaited Android Nougat update in June 2017.out, so they don't become available for everyone at once.That's because firmware updates need to be specifically compatible with the hardware on your phone rather than apps, which work with a wide variety of devices.It seems a safe assumption that the update includes bug fixes and improvements to Android following large-scale feedback after the Marshmallow launch.The security patch for this build is marked as "December 1, 2015," which might indicate that a more large-scale rollout to the rest of the models covered by the Android One program, as well as recent Nexus devices, is scheduled sometime next month.
