Verizon’s Motorola Edge + 2020 gets Android 12 update, maybe it’s over

Motorola and Verizon are pushing Android 12 to the Motorola Edge +, which they co-released in 2020 for 1,000. Android 12, for those who have been holding it, has been available for phone updates since October last year, so yes, it seems like a hell of a delay.

I don’t want to spend too much time here, because we all know that Motorola lacks commitment to regular or quick updates. If you own this phone, which I’m not sure many people do, you’ll want to grab it and get the latest Android updates.

It would have left the phone on Android 11 last year, but Freakout has pushed them to expand it to two OS updates. This Android 12 update is the second and probably the last. I can’t imagine that there are plans to support this phone more after Motorola.

The build to search is RPB31.Q1-19-58-30-4. According to Verizon’s Changelog, this includes the April Android security patch and the following:
