The newest Android 5.0 Lollipop is really awesome, bringing a good host of innovative features, which make it the biggest visual update since Ice Cream Sandwich. But now the question that is on everybody’s minds is this – when will I get it on my smartphone and tablet, as well? Motorola has confirmed that Android 5.0 Lollipop will be coming for Moto X, Moto G, Moto E and other models; and now we’re hearing about first actual reports of this happening.

What needs to be said beforehand is that this isn’t an official roll-out and hasn’t been mentioned by Motorola anywhere on its official blogs. At the moment it appears to be available to some Moto G and Moto X devices in the US, but it’s a pretty clear sign that a complete update cycle is on the way.

According to the folks from ArsTechnica, some unlocked Moto G second-generation 2014 models from the US have started receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA update. This is a little surprising, as probably Nexus owners or other proud users of high-end smartphones were expecting that the update will first be available for them. After all, the 2014 Moto G is a budget device, with a price of $179.

DroidLife also has recently observed that Android 5.0 Lollipop has started rolling out to some Moto X 2014 Pure Edition models, but it was a software testing procedure available to just some members. Also, the Pure Edition Moto X is the unlocked version, which is carrier bloatware-free.

While these reports only speak for a probably limited amount of Moto G and Moto X second-gen unlocked units, if it continues like this, it won’t be a surprise if Lenovo’s Motorola will make it official. And this will be a rather significant win that will put their products under the spotlight.
