Given that Motorola is building Google’s just-announced Nexus 6, it’s probably also a given that Motorola knows their way around the latest version of Android, Lollipop.It makes sense, then, that they’re pretty much the first out of the gate to announce which of their phones are getting the update treatment.
Though they’re mum on timing, Moto has just promised Lollipop updates for around half a dozen devices:
- Moto X (both the 2013 and 2014 models)
- Moto G (both the 2013 and 2014 models, and the LTE version)
- Moto E (their super budget-conscious phone)
- Verizon’s Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini
Motorola is promising to announce more phones after they’ve worked with their “various partners” — which, in other words, means they’ve still got to figure out which carriers are willing to support which phones for a bit longer, and which will work with them on the update distribution process.
