Both models of Motorola Moto X get Android 5.1 Lollipop
Motorola’s Moto X lineup is going to get refreshed this year, no doubt. Reports have it that the third generation model of the hot-selling Android flagship will be launched very soon and this has caused a price slash on the existing models.
Just last week, VP of Product Sales and Operations at Motorola, David Schuster, confirmed that the 2013 and 2014 editions of the Moto X will be getting upgraded to Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, and this week, the latest mobile platform by Google started rolling out for the two smartphones.
Motorola says the company is “excited” to bring the software update. The Lenovo-owned phone maker stated that users will get improved performance, better notification and lock screen interface, tighter security, bug fixes and a faster way to turn on the phone’s torchlight (LED flash). The detailed release notes can be found via the source links so go check it out.
If you are using an unlocked Moto X, the update should get to your device by this week. Carrier-branded phones will likely get their updates at a later time.
