The world of smartphones certainly moves at a breakneck speed, and whatever is released this month might not necessarily be the top dog in the next month. Having said that, for a smartphone to be two years old in the industry would clearly make it a “grandfather” handset. The first generation Motorola Moto X will eventually hit the 2 year old mark (with a third generation Moto X in the pipeline), but prior to it celebrating the second birthday in existence, it does look as though the device will be on the receiving end of the Android 5.1 Lollipop update. Right now, the once flagship device from Motorola has Android 4.4.4 KitKat as the mobile operating system of choice.
In the previous month, David Schuster, Software Product Management at Motorola Mobility, did mention that the Android 5.1 Lollipop update that is heading for the Moto X was being testing, and there was a mention of it arriving “in a few weeks” should there be no hiccups. I guess Murphy has had a say in the things, but perhaps a release later this month is possible. After all, better late than never, and where updates are concerned, it is best to deliver a fully functional one, rather than one that breaks the handset and requires another update to patch up the farce.
