Moto E4, E4 Plus Android 10 update, security updates, and more: Sprint E4 Plus gets September patch

Motorola doesn’t quite like updating the E series a lot, so will the old E4 and E4 Plus get Android 10? Of course, the same applies for the Moto E5 and Moto E6 too. Let’s discuss that a lot more, including the security updates that have been pushed out for the two handsets recently. Also, even if Motorola doesn’t update the E4 sets with Android 10, you can still rely on custom ROMs to get you a taste of Android 10. Read on.

Will Moto E4 and E4 Plus get Android 10 update

Android 10 update eligibility

Motorola Moto E-series smartphones are the most cost-effective devices the company manufactures. The OEM delivers regular security and stability updates, but that is for a limited time only. E4, which has been succeeded twice already, doesn’t have any hope for an Android OS update at this stage. Motorola was expected to roll out Oreo 8.1, last year, but no such update seems to be on the horizon. So, sadly, if you are a Moto E4 user, be assured that Android 10 won’t be knocking on your door.

Moto E4 Android 10 ROMs

Development support has always been good for the Moto E4 handsets. Which is why we think that an Android 10 based ROM would become available for the E4 and E4 Plus, sooner or later. You can also keep tabs on new ROMs as they become available, here: Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus.
