The latest update still has Android version 7.0. It is predicated that Moto G5 plus users will directly get Android 8.0 i.e. Android Oreo update.

Based on rumors / ongoing discussions, Motorola G5 Plus users are hoping to get the Android Oreo software update by February 2018.

Motorola G5 Plus is supposed to get January 2018 security update. There is no official communication from Lenovo owned Motorola regarding Android Oreo roll out schedule.

However,  Motorola owned by Lenovo is rolling out March 2018 Android security patch probably from April 2018 in batches as per the official source - Motorola blog

If you do not wish to wait for official Android Oreo update and are enough tech savvy then we will suggest to try some custom ROM's present on XDA:

Moto G5 Plus Android Oreo - ASOP 8.1.0 ROM
