The Moto X Pure Edition is the last version of the X series that is now two years old following its 2015 release. At the time, Android Marshmallow had not been released and as such, the phone came in with Android Lollipop out of the box.
Back then, Motorola was still good at rolling out software updates and as a result, it took about two months before the Moto X Pure Edition was updated to the then new Android 6.0 Marshmallow. After more than a year with Marshmallow, it appears that the Lenovo-owned company is finally ready to roll out the new Android 7.0 Nougat to the otherwise known as Moto X Style in other markets outside the U.S.
Apparently, some Moto X Pure Edition owners in the U.S. have been sent messages by the company suggesting that a soak test is set to begin. As you may know, this is Motorola’s way of carrying out beta tests where the OS will be rolled out to small section first and after collecting enough feedback, the company will decide whether to release the update to other users of the phone or not.
According to the message, Motorola is inviting users of the Moto X Pure Edition to register their interest in testing the company’s software, where some feedback will also be needed. This feedback will be provided via a private community that the company will provide once you agree to the terms and conditions. Even though there’s no specific mention of Android 7.0 Nougat, there couldn’t be any better indicator that this OS indeed what’s going to happen to the Moto X Pure Edition.
