Motorola’s original Moto G LTE became a very popular mid-range smartphone because it provided good specifications for that price point as well as an impressive software experience. The company has done its part by ensuring that these devices are regularly updated to the latest versions of Android. Motorola has now released the Android 5.1 update for the original Moto G LTE unlocked units in the United States.

Things had been shaping up over the past week or so which made it clear that the update was going to be released soon, Motorola conducted a soak test recently and just last week released the kernel source code for this update.

Users who have an unlocked original Moto G LTE handset in the United States will receive an update notification today informing them that Android 5.1 is finally available for their handset.

The Android 5.1 update adds a couple of new features to the device aside from some very important bug fixes, performance and stability related tweaks.

Motorola is rolling out the update over-the-air in phases so it may take a while for the update is available for all original Moto G LTE users in the United States. Users will need to connect to a Wi-Fi network before they’re able to download said update on the device.
