Updated on Aug 21, 2020: Currently, the Verizon Moto G7 Power has started receiving the stable Android 10 update via OTA that comes with a software version QCO30.85-18. The update notification screenshot has been shared by a user on Reddit which indicates that it brings the system-wide dark theme, gestures navigation, volume controls, etc along with plenty of other Android 10 goodies and system improvements.
We will also include one important thing is that Moto G7 Power is on its last major Android OS update and it won’t gonna receive the Android 11 stable official update anymore. However, thanks to the Project Treble support, all the interested users can manually flash the Android 11 GSI or any other third-party firmware on their Moto G7 Power with ease.
Updated on Aug 7, 2020: As we all know that Motorola has officially started pushing the latest Android 10 stable update for its Moto G7 Power devices. However, not all variant users are lucky enough to receive the same. Recently, Motorola US has mentioned that it may take some time for the Verizon Moto G7 Power users to receive the Android 10 update.
So, there is no expected ETA mentioned by the company yet because the update approval is pending for the partners. That’s why Verizon Moto G7 Power users have to wait further.
Hi. While we never share timing information, the Moto G7 Power is expected to receive the Android 10 updates. Pending partner approval, if that's required. -Rica

Good news for all the Moto G7 Power unit users as the company has finally started pushing the latest Android 10 update in Brazil. The firmware OTA update is making its way in a phased manner and it may take a while in order to arrive on all the units globally. Lenovo-owned brand Motorola has released the Moto G7 Power in March 2019 that came with Android 9.0 Pie preloaded. Now, all the interested Moto G7 Power users can download and install the Android 10 update below that bumps up a software version QPO30.52-29.
To be very specific, Motorola isn’t known for its software update policies as the brand can’t manage to deliver the on-time major Android updates or the frequent security patch updates as well. Even after launching the Android 10 stable back in September 2019, Motorola has managed to push the same for the Moto G7 Power when the Android 11 public Beta has already arrived. But it’s better late than never.
We will recommend you to check for the OTA update manually on an interval basis to get notified earlier. Meanwhile, you can manually flash the firmware update file by following the guide below.
