Motorola Germany: Android L coming to Moto X and Moto G in the fall (Update: turns out it was a hoax)

Update:  As it turns out, Motorola has yet to formally speak up about its plans for Android L. The Facebook account for “Motorola Germany” has been outed as a fake. Here’s a statement from the real Motorola:

Unfortunately, we have found that a Facebook profile under the name Motorola Germany with the following URL facebook.com/MotoDACH/ was created. We would like to point out that this is not an official Motorola site and expressly distance ourselves from said content. All relevant information about Motorola can be found only here on this page.

Yesterday HTC became the first Android OEM to speak up about their plans for Android L, with a promise to begin pushing things out to the HTC One M7 and M8 within 90 days of receiving the final code. Now Motorola Germany has stepped up with some news of its own.

Taking to their Facebook page, Motorola Germany reveals that “Android 5.0” will arrive in the fall for the Moto X and Moto G. What’s interesting here is that this is the first OEM to refer to L with a version number, though Motorola could simply be guessing that it will be Android 5.0 as opposed to 4.5 (and we’d say that’s a safe bet). You’ll also notice that the Moto E isn’t listed, though that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t see the update.

Its important to note that only Motorola Germany has pipped up so far, butwe imagine that the rest of Motorola will end up following a similar schedule. With Android L release not expected to arrive to the Nexus family in final form until fall, this could mean that Motorola’s devices will receive the upgrade right around the same time.
