The AT&T Moto X – also known as the last of the bunch to get Android 4.4.2 – has a soak test for a new software update on the horizon. While nothing is confirmed until the update starts, we would be surprised if this doesn’t turn out to be 4.4.2. There isn’t much else it could be.

OnePlus, a new phone manufacturer led by a former Oppo exec, has decided that the best way to unveil their CyanogenMod-powered phone is to slowly announce specs as we close in on a launch. I’m not sure if this is better or HTC’s approach, which is to let everyone in the world leak your phone for you.
