According to a leak once month ago, the Moto X Play 2015 was benchmarked with Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board, which we do hope that the device would get the update in the near future. And now it becomes true as Moto X Play in European area is going to receive the Nougat update by the end of this month. The official information comes straight from Motorola’s arm in Germany when responding to a question on Twitter about the update.
To refresh your memory, the Moto X Play was first introduced in 2015. The device sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with 1920×1080 resolution. The phone is powered by the mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core chipset inside with the Adreno 405 GPU. The SoC is packed with 3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded via a micro SD card slot up to 256GB.
The Moto X Play has a 21MP main camera at the back with f/2.0, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash for Full HD video recording ability. On the front is equipped with a 5MP camera with f2.2 for selfies and video calls. Moreover, the Moto X Play also offers all the modernist connectivity features such as Wi-Fi 802.11 ac dual-band, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, NFC, FM Radio with RDS, GPS, and 4G LTE connectivity and a huge 3630mAh battery inside will remain all features of the device.

This Nougat update is applied to the SIM-free EU models of the Moto X Play, so the rollout can take longer in other places. Unfortunately, until now we still don’t know which exactly iteration of Nougat will be. The Moto Z and Moto G4 have so far seen the official Android 7.0 updates, but the build being tested in that benchmark for the X Play was Android 7.1.1. Hopefully, Motorola will work harder to bring Android Nougat updates to many other smartphones of the company.
