Motorola updates Moto G5 and Moto G5S to Android 81

THE official site Motorola Brasil says that the Moto G5 and Moto G5S will be updated first for those who have the retail version, and then for those who purchased from the operator.

The status of the Moto G5 and Moto G5S in the retail version is: “Android 8.1 (Oreo) with update started in September 2018”. Meanwhile, the update is “pending adaptations and tests” for TIM, Claro and Vivo.

Both devices have support pages on the update. Motorola recommends installing with a minimum of 50% battery and connected to a Wi-Fi network.
