At a time when Motorola users are enthusiastically waiting for the Android 7.0 Nougat OS update for their Motorola-Lenovo handsets, it seems like that the company is still thinking about the release of Android Nougat as an OS update for the recently launched Moto E3 Power.

The China-based company is yet to announce an update about the release of the Android Nougat firmware its for Moto E3 Power handset.

Motorola recently released a list of smartphones that are eligible to receive Android Nougat OS update. But in the list that was released just last month, the notable absentee was Motorola Moto E3 power .

And now, even a month after announcing this list, Motorola is still finding it difficult to state if the Moto E3 Power would be provided the latest Nougat update or not.

As far the Moto E3 Power is concerned, it is unlikely that this device will be receiving Android Nougat OS, as this phone, despite being a very recent release, does not find place amongst the devices that have been listed as eligible to receive Nougat update.

Motog3 says that the pocket-friendly smartphones from Motorola might not prove to be friendly this time. Talking about Moto E3 Power, there is not even a little chance that the currently existing phones in the E series will get the Android 7.0 update.

This development indicates that users of the Motorola handset may be stuck with Android 6.0 Marshmallow for a long time, reports IBT Times.

The Moto series smartphones is enormously popular in India and the United States because even the budget offerings of Motorola attract people. The Moto E3 power comes with a price tag of Rs 7,999 in India. This is extremely competitive and affordable as Indian market attracts cheap and fully featured phones.

Moto E3 Power has the design language of Moto G4 and G4 Plus. The front is very much of a standard affair. The device has a 5-inch display that is placed between and the earpiece and speaker. Also the earpiece and speaker grills are narrower than before. They are not hiding the stereo speakers this time.
