Punit Soni confirms Android L update for the Moto X

Following some confusion regarding a fake Facebook account, Motorola has indicated that the Moto X will indeed be receiving the Android L update.
August 5, 2014

Since the announcement of Android L, you have probably wondered whether or not your current handset is in line to receive Google’s updated operating system. We know that Nexus owners are guaranteed to see the update, and now Moto X customers can also add themselves to that list.

In response to a question over Google+ regarding the rollout of an “Android L (5.0)” update for the Moto X, Motorola’s Vice President of Product Management, Punit Soni, simply replied “Yup”. It might not be much, and we still don’t have an exact timetable for the update, but it’s a reassuring confirmation for Moto X owners nonetheless.

Although the Moto X receives the regular Nexus-like update treatment, there was some confusion over whether or not the device would be receiving Android L. Back in June, a fake Motorola Facebook account claimed that the Moto X and Moto G would be updated to Android L, but Motorola announced that the information was not genuine and that it should be disregarded.

Whilst there’s no official news on the Moto G front yet, Moto X users can rest assured that their device will see Android L, and could in fact be one of the first to boot up the new operating system, if the KitKat update was anything to go by. Android L is expected to arrive sometime this fall.
