Most Moto X customers are likely waiting patiently for Android 4.4 KitKat update to drop. Google has already released the update for its Nexus devices, whereas other OEMs are expected to follow suit soon. Given Motorola’s relationship with Google, its wholly owned by the latter, one might expect Motorola’s recent devices to receive the update sooner rather than later. While it has already been said that Android 4.4 for Moto X is going to be released in the coming weeks, it seems that Verizon tends to push out the update within a few weeks as well. Apparently Big Red has started soak test process for Android 4.4 Moto X update.
“Soak test” is basically a fancy term for beta test, a few users are selected by Verizon and Motorola who receive the update prior to everyone else and report back to the companies if they find any bugs or issues. A leaked screenshot point toward the possibility that the soak tests being conducted are indeed for the Android 4.4 Moto X update, which brings KitKat goodness to Motorola’s flagship. No word has been received as yet if the other carriers that offer the Moto X have begun their own processes as yet to test out Android 4.4 prior to its release. Soak tests usually take a few weeks, after which we should hopefully see a release. No official release timeframe is available at this point in time. [Image via AndroidPolice]
