Motorola’s flagship devices still get updates relatively quickly, but its budget phones lag behind quite a bit. For example, the Verizon Moto G4 Play was just updated from Android 6.0 to 7.1.1 earlier this month, shortly after the international variants received it. Now Motorola has released the kernel source code for the G4 Play’s Nougat update.

The kernel source for ‘Harpia’ (the G4 Play’s codename) was published earlier today on GitHub.

Motorola’s excellent track record with updating devices fell by the wayside as it became part of Lenovo and started releasing more device variants than anyone can keep track of each year. Nothing is better proof of that than the Moto G4 Play’s situation. The device, which was released on September of 2016, has been stuck on Marshmallow 6.0.1 for months and months as owners gave up on even getting an update.

Next week we’ll finally see the grand unveiling of the OnePlus 5T, a smartphone that just can’t keep itself from being in the news every single day. Today a test run by someone with a prototype has surfaced in the Geekbench database, and this gives us some new information about the device, and confirms some old rumors. First off, the OnePlus 5T will have the model number A5010, emulating the naming scheme from last year when the OnePlus 3 was A3000 and the 3T was A3010 (the 5 is A5000 as you’d expect). Next up, it’s still sporting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, which is no surprise…

Sony Xperia Touch getting Android 7.1.1

Sony’s one-of-a-kind Xperia Touch projector running Android is getting a software update. Launched on Android 7.0 in Europe this summer and in the US recently, the device is now being treated to the 7.1.1 version of Google’s OS. It’s a lot more than an incremental update, however – neat features are being added too. Most importantly, the Xperia Touch now gets gesture controls when in wall mode. The input method advertised in early demos didn’t make it to the commercial product, and we did miss it when we reviewed the Touch. Well, it’s now coming with the update. On top of that, you’ll now…

Samsung Galaxy J7 on T-Mobile getting Android 7.1.1 update

T-Mobile has started pushing out a new update to Samsung Galaxy J7 units on its network. The update brings along Android Nougat OS version 7.1.1. In addition, it also includes monthly security updates. It’s worth mentioning that the carrier’s support page contains contradictory information – at one point its says the update includes Android 7.0, while at other it mentions Android 7.0.1. Even Android 6.0.1 is mentioned in one section. However, in reality, it’s the Android 7.1.1 update that’s rolling out – even a T-Mobile support thread (initiated by a Samsung Galaxy J7 user) confirms…

T-Mobile Galaxy J7 gets updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, despite support notes claiming otherwise

When we think of Samsung phones, our minds instantly go to the Galaxy S8 and Note8. But Samsung makes a ton of different phones, and the Galaxy J7 is on the upper end of them. The T-Mobile variant of the J7 is now receiving its Android 7.1.1 Nougat update, even though the people behind the phone’s support page don’t seem to have any idea what’s going on.

T-Mobile’s support page says that the update is Android 6.0.1, Android 7.0, and Android 7.0.1, all in the same document, so clearly there’s a bit of confusion going on.

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is finally getting Android 7.1.1

Samsung is rolling out the Android 7.1.1 update to the Galaxy J5 (2016) in Poland and possibly elsewhere in Europe, as expected.

Motorola publishes Android 7.1.1 kernel source code for Moto Z Play

Motorola isn’t the best at updating its devices these days. Custom ROMs can often be helpful for devices without speedy official updates, but the lack of a recent kernel source code can make ROMs less stable/functional. Thankfully Motorola has released the kernel code for the original Moto Z Play’s Android 7.1.1 update.

The company is a bit late on this; kernel source code is supposed to be released shortly after the Android update, but the original Z Play started to get Android 7.1.1 in June.
