We already know by now that the Verizon Droid Turbo will be updated straight to Android 5.1 Lollipop but what the company hasn’t revealed is that when this update will be sent out. According to a Verizon device test engineer who has a Droid Turbo unit that’s running a test build of Android 5.1, the Lollipop update for this handset is going to be released in “mid June.”
Jose Arturo, the device test engineer, went on to reveal in his Google+ post why the update hasn’t been released yet. One of the reasons he gives for this is that they’re still working on ironing out some bugs and until that’s done the update can’t be pushed out, because it would be a disaster to release a bug ridden update.
Still, Arturo’s claims have not been backed by an official statement from Verizon so take the expected release timeframe with a grain of salt for now.
The Motorola-made Droid Turbo is an exclusive to Verizon and just yesterday the carrier started offering this device in three limited edition metal accent colors.
There’s no doubt in the fact that many Droid Turbo users simply can’t wait for the Lollipop update to arrive, seeing as how majority of the high-end devices by other OEMs have already received said update. Hopefully they won’t have to wait past “mid June.”
