Motorola has started to release Android Nougat 7.0 update for its mid-ranger Moto M smartphone in India. It is an OTA update and weighs around 1.5GB which means it is advised to connect to WiFi for avoiding data charges if you are on a limited data plan. The update carries the build number XT1663_S141_170607_ROW_TO_XT1633_S356_170621_ROW and should arrive on your particular unit anytime soon.
The official changelog for the Moto M Nougat update does not mention all the changes in detail but specifically highlights that the new version will also add Google Duo video calling app to the smartphone. But as we are familiar with Android Nougat, you can expect to see features like split screen mode, better notification management, editable quick settings tiles, and improved doze mode among other changes. The update should also bring bug fixes and performance improvements.
As for the Moto M, it is the first Motorola smartphone to feature an all-metal body as well as MediaTek processor and was launched late last year. It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 2.5D curved glass. Under the hood, it has the MediaTek Helio P15 chipset coupled with 3GB or 4GB of RAM. The phone offers 32GB or 64GB of internal storage depending on the model you choose.
There is a 16-megapixel camera on the back with f/2.0 aperture, dual-LED flash, and phase detection autofocus. On the front, it has an 8-megapixel camera to help you click good enough selfies. The whole package is powered by a 3050mAh battery and it also features USB Type-C port and a fingerprint scanner.
