So, about that DROID Turbo update to Android 5.1. Because the Internet is going absolutely nuts over its seemingly late arrival, and because there is all sorts of random rumor and speculation floating about causing mass confusion, largely fueled by Verizon updating the phone’s listings with mentions of “Android 5.0.2,” Motorola’s David Schuster took to Google+ to set the record straight.
According to Schuster, the update will indeed still be Android 5.1 when it rolls out. Motorola is still in the “lab test cycle” at the moment, so it’s probably safe to assume that the update needs more time to bake before it’s ready for your phone. In other words, an update showing up this week is probably unlikely.

Hey, I wanted to give a quick update on our progress on the DROID Turbo 5.1 lollipop upgrade since there seems to be A LOT of inaccurate information out there. We are still in the lab test cycle and things are looking good. We have not provided a launch date yet, but I will let you know as soon as the update is available.
