Moto G4 Play Receiving February 2017 Security Update

The Moto G4 Play started receiving a new software update in Brazil, and recent reports suggest the package contains the February 2017 Security Patch. Apart from fixing some vulnerabilities of the operating system, the update contains multiple bug fixes and stability improvements for the device. The complete changelog is yet to be released by Motorola, but it will likely be released once the update has been pushed out to all eligible devices. It is also worth noting that the Moto G4 Play hasn't received Android 7.0 Nougat yet and is still running on Android Marshmallow. However, the smartphone is among the list of devices that will be receiving Android 7.0 Nougat in the future, though a specific time frame hasn't been specified by the company.

The package is being rolled out as an over-the-air (OTA) update, so it might take a while before all users receive it. The system will automatically prompt you to download and install the update when it is ready for your device. However, if you can't wait, you can manually check for the update by simply heading to the Settings app. From there, tap the "About device" option and then select "Software updates." If the update is indeed ready for your device, you will be given the option to download it, which will take around 10 to 15 minutes.

The Moto G4 Play was launched in mid-2016 and is an entry-level smartphone that happens to be the cheapest model from the Moto G4 lineup. It packs a 5.0-inch display panel with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. It's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core system-on-chip that's coupled with the Adreno 306 GPU. Memory-wise, the Moto G4 Play packs 2GB of RAM along with 16GB of internal storage which can be further expanded by up to 128GB via a microSD card. For optics, the device sports an 8-megapixel shooter on its rear side that's assisted by a LED flash and digital zoom. Selfies are handled by a 5-megapixel front camera with an aperture of f/2.2. Keeping the lights on is a decently sized 2,800mAh battery which is charged via a micro-USB port located on the device.
