Google released Nougat almost an entire year ago, and few of the Motorola Smartphones including the Moto X Play, Moto X Pure Edition, and Moto G4 Play are still without it.
Back in October 2016, Motorola did confirmed that Most of the Motorola Smartphones including those three will get Android Nougat and it's almost Mid of August (2017) and the Moto X Play, Moto X Pure Edition, and Moto G4 Play still remains on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a dated security patch level.
All we know at this point is that, yes, Lenovo is testing Nougat on these phone. The company isn’t providing a timetable like it did earlier this year, though. That’s likely because it doesn’t want to give false hope and disappointment to thier customers.
The Droid Maxx 2 is also eligible for Android Nougat update but there is no word on it till date.
Chances for this category of Motorola customers to receive "Android 7.0" update are slim to none however, due to the fact that the company is currently dedicating its time and resources towards sending out the Android 7.1.1 Nougat to the premier devices of the moment. It won't come as a surprise if the Moto X Play, Moto X Pure Edition, and Moto G4 Play gets the latest version Android 7.1.1 and not the Android 7.0.
That said, it's time for Lenovo and Motorola to release the most awaited Android Nougat update for these Smartphones. If delayed more the users will eventually choose another brand or will end up Installing a custom firmware to update their devices.
