Moto E and Moto Maxx Receiving Lollipop Update in Brazil

Motorola is currently pushing out the official Lollipop update to small test groups for the Moto Maxx and Moto E in select countries, all of which are not the US.

Moto’s mid-range game has been boosted thanks to the Moto G and Moto E, both of which appear to be doing very well among budget-minded buyers and overseas in Asia and in South America.

They wouldn’t offer up a timeline, price, or any other detail, only that they would carry it at some point down the road.  (more…)
