One of the most successful smartphone series from Motorola has been the ‘G series’ in recent years. The Moto G series models are the best affordable devices in some regions specifically in USA. And the company seems to have picked up on this and now have 5 different models in the Moto G8 series. All devices in the lineup share many similarities between themselves. To add to the confusion, even though some of the devices from the G8 series launched in 2020, they run Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.
Having last year’s software on a smartphone launched in 2020 is a tad disappointing for the end-user. The only models to come with Android 10 out of the gate are the Moto G8 and the Moto G8 Power. Weirdly, the Moto G8 Plus also runs on Android 9 Pie. It’s hard to imagine why Motorola made this decision. Nevertheless, there is some light at the end of the tunnel for Moto G8 Power Lite users.
Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite Android 10 update
According to a tweet from the official Motorola India Twitter account, Android 10 will be released for the Moto G8 Power Lite. Thus users don’t need to worry about being stuck with an Android version released in 2019 on their new smartphone. The tweet came in response to an individual voicing his frustration over the device running Android 9 Pie in 2020.

The tweet only confirms that the Moto G8 Power Lite Android 10 update will be arriving. However, there is no timeline provided for the update. Thus, the update might come in a month or a few months, we can only guess. Motorola usually sticks to stock Android for its smartphones with a sprinkle of customizations and features. So we hope the OEM releases the Android 10 update for all models in the Moto G8 series soon.
Nonetheless, the Moto G8 Power Lite Android 10 update should bring a host of new features and improvements. And now that the update has been confirmed, buyers looking to pick up the Moto G8 Power Lite now has a little more incentive to do so.
