After a long wait, it appears Motorola is finally shipping out soak test invites for Moto X (1st Gen) owners, bringing them up to Android 5.0.2. According to Motorola’s Luciano Carvalho, the company has no current plans to bring Android 5.1 to the device, but that could change at any time. (more…)
Invites to a soak test of “an early preview of a new software release” for members of Motorola’s Feedback Network who own the DROID Turbo arrived this morning. Is it Lollipop time for Turbo owners? It might be, though the details in the invite aren’t specific enough for us to know for sure just yet. (more…)
Motorola is prepping a soak test for owners of the DROID Turbo, which could contain an update to Lollipop, as well as VoLTE functionality. If it is indeed Lollipop, other Turbo owners who did not receive this invite should be equally as excited, as Motorola continues to impress with their quick rollout of Android 5.0 to devices. (more…)
Last year, Motorola pushed out a freshly announced Kit Kat update to the Verizon Moto X (1st gen) in under three weeks. As you can imagine, we are still impressed by this feat, considering they not only had to test and prep the software for the phone, but it also needed approval by Big Red in order to go live for all on their network. It’s one thing to push an update to a Nexus or the new Moto X “Pure Edition,” both of which do not have carrier ties and can be given new software as manufacturers see fit; it’s a completely different struggle when a carrier is involved.
Which brings us to this year’s Moto X (2nd gen) and its impending Lollipop updates. We have already seen Motorola push Android 5.0 to the “Pure Edition,” but what about all of the carrier variants? Our team has been discussing this subject a lot over the last few days, all the while wondering if Motorola and Verizon would try and repeat last year’s success. Tim was even ready to put money on the updates starting yesterday or this upcoming Monday. While no new software has begun pushing as I type this, he might be right. (more…)
Usually, once the soak test rolls out and is successful, the firmware is sent to all owners of the aforementioned devices across the network. If VoLTE is a feature you have been looking to take advantage of on Verizon, then be on the lookout soon. (more…)
Moto X owners on the AT&T network are receiving invites from Motorola for a soak test. These owners have been waiting very patiently for an update to either Android 4.4.3 and/or Android 4.4.4, but this update is likely for Android 4.4.4. That is the version Verizon’s variant of the Moto X is on currently, so Android 4.4.4 could be a safe bet. (more…)
