The arrival of Pie for the Moto Z3 was spotted on the support website, which also gave out the details of what's in store for the Moto Z3 in the new update.

Android Pie improvements such as Adaptive Brightness, Adaptive Battery, gesture navigation, improved volume controls, a rotation key in the navigation bar, and a screenshot button in the power menu has made its way to the firmware update.

But that's not all, it also now comes with the support for the upcoming 5G Moto Mod.

Motorola had earlier also said that the mod, which is mentioned to pack in a 2,000 mAh battery, might launch in early 2019 on Verizon’s network as per Android Authority.

Motorola had launched the Moto G6 and G6 Play in India last year with Android 8.0 Oreo.

As per a report by XDA Developers, the Moto G6 is set to undergo an Android Pie soak test in Brazil. A user on the Telegram group for Moto G6 has posted an image which claims that there is some update available for a select number of devices.

The update is said to come with version number PPS29.55-10 and is claimed to include "bug fixes" and "stability improvements".

It also talks about carrying the update to the Android security patch of  January 2019.

For some reason though, the changelog doesn’t mention Android 9 Pie. Google Pay also does not seem to work with this update.

The report also mentions that Motorola has made some changes related to future security updates on the device, but it fails to give out the exact details on changes.

There was also an alleged Android 9 Pie soak test that was spotted earlier, but it was just the Android 8.1 Oreo-based update.
