In 2013, Motorola showed customers they were serious about system updates when the company updated its Moto X flagship to KitKat faster than some Nexus devices. However, Motorola has been slower in getting the latest version of Lollipop to its devices this year. Thankfully, Motorola’s David Schuster took to Google Plus today to update users about current Android 5.1 update statuses for several Motorola phones.
For the Motorola Moto X (2014), US Cellular users are seeing full deployment. Users on AT&T will be happy to know that a full soak test has just begun. Assuming all goes well, that means an OTA is just around the corner. There is an ongoing soak test for Verizon users that is being expanded. Motorola is also allowing an open pull for Verizon and AT&T users meaning they can manually pull the update from the Settings menu on their phones.
For the Motorola Moto G with LTE (1st generation), Motorola has started a full soak in Brazil Retail. And for the Motorola Moto E with LTE (2nd generation), Cricket Wireless users are getting a full Android 5.1 deployment starting today.
That is all the news we have so far, but it seems to be a pretty big day for Motorola updates. Hopefully, the ongoing soak tests will be promptly followed by full OTAs.
