Motorola’s Android 12 rollout is gaining momentum. The company recently rolled out a stable Android 12 update for the Moto G200 in some markets. And now it’s expanding the latest version of Android to yet another smartphone in its large portfolio: the Moto G50.
The stable Android 12 update has started rolling out to the Moto G50. The update comes with the build number S1RF32.27-25 and is currently available for XT2137-1-DS model in the UK. We have not seen any reports that the update is going live in Europe or other markets. But it should only be a matter of time before Motorola expands rollout to more regions. Also note that the device that downloads Android 12 is the Snapdragon 480-powered Moto G50 – not to be confused with the Moto G50 5G, which packs the MediaTek Dimensity 700.
Moto G50 owners in the UK can look forward to receiving the new update in the coming days. Motorola’s software update page here says that the Android 12 update for the Moto G50 is imminent, but not yet live. However, the stable build is already available through the company’s Rescue and Smart Assistant Tool. You can either wait for the automatic OTA rollout or grab the latest update right now using the rescue tool and flash it using a PC. Unless you are a super user, we do not recommend going the manual route.
In terms of new features, users can look forward to brand new material you design, a redesigned notification panel, Privacy Dashboard, camera and microphone indicators and switches, and more. In addition to Android 12-specific changes, the software also includes features like quick flashlight, Flip to DND and Quick capture as part of Motorola’s My UX experience.
Other Motorola phones confirmed for Android 12 include Moto G50, Moto G Stylus, Razr 5G, Motorola Edge 5G and Moto G40 Fusion. Go over here to see if your device is on the list.
