Motorola Moto X Play 2015 -19

Outside of the U.S., the DROID Maxx 2 is known as the Moto X Play and it just got the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in both India and Brazil. Perhaps a little surprising considering how quickly Moto devices have received Android updates in the past, but still a welcome surprise.

The Moto X Pure Edition in the States (known as the Moto X Style outside the U.S.) and the Moto X (2nd generation) have already received the update, but the DROID Maxx 2 is still waiting. Perhaps Verizon is testing it. Or adding some bloat. Or just taking their sweet time.
