Arriving as build number NPN25.137-83, Motorola has started pushing a new update to Moto G5 Plus in the US. Moto G5 Plus was launched in February at the Mobile World Congress Barcelona alongside Moto G5.

The new update, which is currently rolling out brings August security patch to the Moto G5 Plus. Based on Nougat 7.0, the update doesn’t bring any change in the operating system version. Although it takes care of various vulnerabilities in the device, the update doesn’t bring a security patch for Blueborne attack vector, which is a recently discovered vulnerability that spreads through Bluetooth.

Further, along with the August security patch, the update also brings improved emergency calling. Many enhancements have been made to the emergency calling functionality. The update also includes bug fixes and performance improvements for the device.
