In January of this year, Motorola began releasing the Android 10 firmware update for the Moto G7 Plus. A few weeks later, the company followed up by providing the full kernel source code for this update. Owners of the vanilla Moto G7 have been waiting for this update since January and now, after many months, it is finally unfolds. Unfortunately, this is only available in Brazil at the moment, but the company will be promoting it in other regions after this initial launch.
Motorola announces that the release of Android 10 started on May 7. The company wants to make this process as smooth as possible. For this reason, it will continue to be released in batches until the end of this month. The current version of Android 10 bears QPU30.52-16-2 serial number. ΕUnfortunately, there is no confirmation yet on the level of Android security patch on the firmware. As you might expect, the update features all the goodies offered by Android 10. This includes dark system-wide operation, motion navigation, smart responses, and enhanced rights controls.
While Motorola is one of the worst companies in terms of fast Android updates, the Moto G7 has received a lot of love from the Android community. The handset already has many custom ROM versions based on Android 10 such as LineageOS 17.1. Once the Android 10 update reaches more countries, we expect to see the company release the Android 10 kernel source code. As a result, the custom development scene will continue to grow for this mid-range phone.
