    Motorola is not the name that comes up when you talk about software updates. The Lenovo owned brand is notorious for offering the least number of OS updates and delivering them much delayed. Hence, for Motorola users, something like Android 13 could take ages to come. Thankfully, a leak has now revealed what Motorola devices are in line to get the Android 13 update first. Spoiler alert: not many of Motorola's devices are getting the update in the initial stages.

    Based on a report from GSMArena, only a handful of Motorola devices are getting the Android 13 update first. The list includes the following devices:

    Motorola Edge+ (2022)

    Motorola Edge (2022)

    Motorola Edge 30 Pro

    Motorola Edge 30

    Moto G Stylus 5G 2022

    Moto G 5G 2022

    Moto G82 5G

    Moto G62 5G

    Moto G42

    Moto G32

    Motorola Android 13 update plan leaks

    It is surprising to see phones like the Moto G71, Moto G51, Moto G52 and a couple of other Moto G models launched earlier this year not making the cut in this list. Even the more popular models from 2021 such as the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion, Edge 20, and Edge 20 Pro are missing from the list.

    The devices that have made it to the Android 13 update list could also be waiting until the start of 2023 to get their Android updates. This is surprising given that Motorola relies on a largely stock Android-like interface. On the other hand, Samsung with its heavily modified One UI interface usually delivers its update first. In fact, most of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Z devices from the last two years could end up getting the Android 13 update before the year ends.

    Coming back to Motorola, the brand just announced its first 200MP camera phone along with the Motorola Razr 2022 variant. The new Razr 2022 goes for a major new design revamp and top-of-the-line specifications this year instead of subtle tweaks. It is now based on the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, a large new display with slimmer bezels, and two brand new cameras. The Razr 2022, if launched globally, could compete with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 that launched recently.
