Lenovo has started testing the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Moto G4 Plus. The update is currently ongoing soak tests in Brazil where users, who have signed up for the Motorola Feedback Network, are beginning to receive the Nougat update.

The latest update weighs nearly 954MB and comes along with Android's latest October security patch. The update is a slightly hefty one so those who have the 16GB version of the model should clear their system as much as they can to make space for the update.

The ongoing rollout, however, is a routine soak test to ensure that the latest Android OS is free from bugs and glitches once it becomes widely available.

Although the exact date of the final OTA rollout of the update is not known yet, Lenovo has hinted it could happen sometime in November. Among the Motorola models, the Moto Z and the Moto G4 Plus are most likely to be the first models to experience the upgraded OS.

The Android 7.0 Nougat introduces several features like multi-window mode, improvements to Doze, quick replies to notifications, improved security, bundled notifications and more. As of now, only Google's Nexus phones have received the OTA rollout of the Android 7.0 Nougat update with flagships from Samsung, LG, HTC and Lenovo slated to get the update from November.
