Motorola begins teasing KitKat: “More to share soon”

Moto X

The LG Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat are now official! For now the only device that supports KitKat is the new Nexus 5, but Google has promised this will change in the next few weeks with the update coming to the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and the Galaxy S4 GPe and HTC ONe GPe.

How about non-Nexus or Google Play edition devices – when will they see some KitKat love? While we can’t say for sure, Motorola has already begun teasing us in a new Google+ message.

The message tells us very little, but it could be an indication that Motorola is preparing to the bring the update to some of there devices. The Moto X is the most obvious candidate, though this teaser could also be a hint of their future plans for devices like the Moto G.

We can’t say for sure what Motorola is planning, but considering they are a Google company, it doesn’t seem to shocking to think that they’d be one of the first manufacturers to rollout KitKat.

This could also be part of the reason why the Moto X has yet to see Android 4.3, maybe they plan to skip it altogether?

    Bet they don’t bring it to any of their devices that are less than 12 months old like the RAZR M or RAZR i !

    Bye moto, I’m getting me a Nexus 5

      I hope they do bring it RAZR M . It will be awesome. I talk to a representative from that said, don’t be surprise. And keep your phone fully charge.I’m gonna keep my hope up.

        Too many dashed hopes, broken promises and abandoned devices litter the Motorola Android history books for me to get my hopes up.

      Didn’t they commit to 2 years or money back a while ago?

      • Wozn2

        Did they give a timescale? Maybe you’ll get 4.4 sometime in 2015/16?

        • adam evans

          not sure, it seems to me that google want to put the old motorola behind them and almost start fresh, so they might like to forget that deal

          • Wozn2

            Sometimes sales talk is just sales talk. I’m done with Motorola.

  • adam evans

    Will. Interesting to see how Google handle Motorola. Will the favour them? Or will they be just as slow as the rest?

    • Brian Shieh

      They might make it slower than the Nexus line (after all, Motorola does skin a bit and optimize it, so it may take some time).

  • Nathan Powell

    but it could be an indication that Motorola is preparing to the bring the update to some of *there* devices.
    I’m not a grammar nazi but really? :p
