T-Mobile support staffer Mike also reliable this news in T-Mo’s central forums, observant that T-Mobile has “received word that [the Moto Z2 Force] will no longer be removing Android Pie.”
As for since it won’t be updating a T-Mobile, ATT, and Sprint versions of a Moto Z2 Force to Pie, Motorola says that a preference is due to “a accumulation of reasons” and adds that releasing Android updates “is a formidable process.”
Motorola does contend that it is still committed to providing dual years of confidence updates on all Moto Z2 Force models. The Moto Z2 Force launched during T-Mobile in Aug 2017, so that two-year joining is reaching a end.
The Moto Z2 Force was updated to Android 8.0 Oreo during a finish of 2017, though it looks like that’ll be a usually vital Android OS refurbish that it receives. That’s unsatisfactory for Moto Z2 Force owners on T-Mo, generally given a Moto Z line has typically been deliberate Motorola’s “flagship” array of phones. Now it appears that usually a Verizon chronicle will be updated to Pie since a refurbish will capacitate support for Verizon’s 5G Moto Mod.
