Unlike iOS, where most of the devices get the latest OS update on Day One, Android users have to sit back and worry about when they will get the new OS update (if they’re lucky to get, that is). If you’re a Motorola customer, you’re almost covered. The company has announced that it’ll be bringing the latest Android L (or Android 5.0/Android Lollipop) to several of their handsets.
This includes Moto X (1st and 2nd Gen), Moto G (1st and 2nd Gen), Moto G with 4G LTE, Moto E, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini. Yes, these are the devices which were launched in the past couple of years, and are now sure to get the taste of the Lollipop.
As one’d expect, there’s no mention of ‘when’ the Android 5.0 update will come to these devices, and which model will get it first, but don’t expect this to drag on a lot, as Motorola ensures that they don’t meddle too much with stoic Android, and in turn makes it easier for their engineers to upgrade the ROM to the latest Android version.
Motorola was the first OEM to upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat back in November last year, within just 3 weeks of official announcement. Also, it’s important to note that the support page talks about ‘current plans for Lollipop upgrades’ which means that the company might in fact increase the number of devices supported.
We’re still working out the details on timing and the upgrade depends on our partners’ support so stay tuned to our software upgrades page for the latest and greatest.
Thank you Moto.
