Motorola begins soak testing Moto X4 Android Pie update in India

Back in August, soon after Google announced Android 9.0 Pie – the latest version of Android – Motorola shared a list of its smartphones that would get the Android Pie update. One of those smartphones was the Moto X4 which has now received the Android Pie update in India, but, there’s a catch.


The Moto X4 was launched in India around the same time last year with Android 7.1 Nougat. However, the smartphone did receive its Android Oreo update later in December. And now, Motorola has rolled out the Android Pie update for Moto X4 in India. But, this isn’t the final roll-out. This is just a soak test and the update is only rolled out to a small number of users for beta testing. Once the beta testing is complete and the update is devoid of bugs, Motorola will start rolling out the stable version of Pie to all the users of Moto X4.


The Android Pie update for Moto X4 that’s rolled out right now in India carries version number PPW29.69-17. The update brings in a new UI as well as features like Adaptive Battery, Gesture Navigation, and more to Moto X4.
