Today Google unveiled the next generation of the Nexus family, while also revealing plans to update existing Nexus and Google Play Edition devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop in the “coming weeks”. Now Motorola has spoke up on its plans for the update as well.
Motorola vows that it will bring the update to both 1st and 2nd generation Moto X handsets, 1st and 2nd gen Moto G devices, the Moto G with 4G LTE, Moto E, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini. As for when? Motorola says it is “still working out the details on timing and the upgrade depends on [their] partners’ support so stay tuned to our software upgrades page for the latest and greatest.”
That leaves the timeline up to interpretation, but given Motorola’s recent history we wouldn’t be too surprised to see the update start arriving to select devices within the next month or so. Either way, the good news is that none of Motorola’s 2013 or 2014 flagships are being left behind with the jump to Android 5.0 Lollipop! We have to wonder which manufacturer will be the next to officially comment on its Android 5.0 Lollipop plans, though we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s HTC (given its track record).
