Motorola launched the Moto G6 and its derivatives in Brazil in April , bringing a renewed design and increases in the technical specifications of the device. Then, with the launch of Android 9.0 Pie, Motorola itself has released a list of devices that should receive the update for the new version of the operating system of the robot. Thus, many wondered when the company would release the new version of the software.
This is because among the smartphones that are on the list, and that will be graced with the update, is the Moto G6 itself, which left the factory running Android 8.0 Oreo. Now it looks like the first tests with the Pie in the G6 were started because it was seen in a benchmark test of GeekBench, running the latest version of the system, Android 9 Pie. Check out:
In the list, we see the Moto G6, in its variant with 3 GB of RAM, which has 32 GB of internal storage, running version 9 of the software. While he was with Oreo, he scored some 741 points in the single-core and 3803 points in the multi-core. With the Pie, it delivers 1143 points in the single-core and 3989 points in the multi-core.
The curious thing, however, is that in the test he is using Snapdragon 625. It is worth remembering, however, that the Snapdragon 450 is a kind of variation of this processor. Either this is a test-only unit, or the test has identified the processor in the wrong way.

So far, we do not know much about when the company will release this update to the public. However, given the tradition of releasing a closed beta for some users before the official arrival, it may take a while for that to happen. In the meantime, we are still not expecting to wait for more news coming from the manufacturer of the device.
