The company seems to be avoiding the Android Oreo 8.0 update for the device. Soak Test is currently underway in Brazil and Indian users may have to wait a bit longer to get the final update.
Looks like Moto G5S Plus (Review) never got Android Oreo 8.0 update. Many users are reported to have started getting the Android Oreo 8.1 update on their devices. Note that Android Oreo 8.0 OS has never been installed on this model, which means the company is avoiding the 8.0 Oreo update for this device.
The 1.18GB update carries version number OPP28.60 and is part of a sock test currently underway in Brazil. Not everyone will have access to it at this time because the sock test is like a beta time for updates, a small number of people have been sent for testing. However, this means that the Motorola Moto G5S Plus is almost ready to send the Oreo update, and all users will get it soon. Updates are usually periodic, which means Indian users may have to wait longer.
Lenovo-owned Motorola launched the Moto G5S Plus – an upgrade to the Moto G5 Plus – in August last year. It comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset with octa-core CPU 2GHz and an Adreno 506 GPU. It has 64GB internal storage with 4GB RAM which can be expanded up to 128GB.
In terms of camera, the Moto G5S Plus has a dual-camera setup with a 13-megapixel sensor. The front shooter has an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens with f / 2.0 aperture and LED flash. The device has a 3,000mAh battery with turbocharging.
Recently, Lenovo has slashed the price of its Moto G5s smartphone in India by Rs 5,000 and it is now available for purchase at Rs 9,999 from Amazon under the 45th Anniversary Sale. The company announced this on Twitter and said the discount was being offered because they made the first phone call 45 years ago and would be valid until April 11. For those who don’t know, Martin Cooper, a Motorola employee, did the first. On April 3, 1973, handheld mobile phone calls were broadcast from New York City to Bell Labs headquarters in New Jersey on a prototype of the Motorola DynaTAC model.
