Motorola was one of the first brands along with Samsung to launch foldable smartphones. Back in November 2019, they launched their first foldable device, which is the Motorola Razr. The phone didn’t make up to the hype when it comes to sales numbers, probably because of the mid-range chipset inside it. However, it managed to sell some units in the US and other countries. With that said, the Motorola Razr came with Android 9 out of the box. Later, they had pushed the Android 10 update for the smartphone. Last year, they had promised that the device would receive the Android 11 update.
The brand has pushed the Android 11 update for the Motorola Razr in the US by performing their promise. It has been eight months since the announcement of the Android 11 update for the device. Verizon, via a blog post, has informed us about the rollout of the Android 11 update. Apart from the bump up to the new Android version, they have also bumped up the security patch to July 2021. It will receive the popular Android 11 features like the new media controls, Conversations, chat bubbles, and much more. With the new Android 11 update, the device will not receive any further OS upgrades. We expect that Moto will continue pushing security updates for the upcoming year too. The new update comes with the build number RPV31.Q2-62-7-10. Here is the changelog of the latest update.
The current software update provides Android OS 11 and gives you the most up to date Android security patches on your device.
