Moto X (1st Gen), Moto E (1st Gen) and Moto G with 4G LTE (1st Gen) to receive Android 5.1 update directly
If you’re an owner of Moto X (1st Gen), Moto E (1st Gen) and Moto G with 4G LTE (1st Gen), chances are very high that you’re tired of checking when will your device receive Android lollipop update. Well, there have been advancements in this case. These devices will be receiving the Lollipop v5.1 update directly.
Motorola’s senior director of software product management David Schuster revealed the news in a Google+ post yesterday, along with the reasons for the decision. He said,
“As some of you might know, we’ve been testing Lollipop 5.0.2 upgrades on Moto X (1st Gen), Moto E (1st Gen) and Moto G with 4G LTE (1st Gen) in several regions. In parallel, we have started testing Lollipop 5.1 which was recently released by Google. Given the improvements in Lollipop 5.1, we have decided to move all efforts to upgrade these devices directly from KitKat to Lollipop 5.1.”
While, many Motorola devices have already received the lollipop update, owners of the devices mentioned above are still being forced to use Android v4.4. News about updating first generation Motorola devices have been in the air for some time now, but the recent statement from David Schuster has cleared the doubts regarding the update. However, it is worth noticing that even now the exact release date hasn’t been mentioned. We can only hope that they release the update as soon as possible.
