Motorola, which has supplied hardware for Google's latest Nexus 6 smartphone that was officially launched on 15 October running the latter's Android L 'Lollipop' out of the box, has made official plans to bring Android L to its older flagship smartphones as well.
Users of Motorola's older and more recent smartphones that currently run Android 4.4.4 KitKat (and older) operating system will get the Android L update.
According to a post on the official Motorola blog, if you are a user of any of the Moto devices mentioned below, you have plenty to cheer about in terms of OS upgrade:
- Both the 1st and 2nd generation Motorola X
- Moto E
- 4G LTE variant of Moto G
- Both the 1st and 2nd generation Moto G
- Motorola's Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini
Users of the above Motorola smartphones can also check out Motorola's official software upgrade page, to get more information about device compatibility aspects.
Also, do keep in mind that this is not the final list of Motorola devices that are slated to receive Google's Android L OS upgrade. Other Motorola devices will be included in the list very shortly.
The Android L update is seemingly not restricted to Motorola's smartphones alone. According to a report published in Christian Today, users of older Nexus devices viz Nexus 4, Nexus 5 , Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10 tablet should get the Android L update earlier than rumoured.
The above aspect adds meat to earlier reports that mentioned about Google's Android L reaching older Nexus devices, beginning from the last week of October.
