Many of us are looking forward to receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow on our Android devices but there are still some devices that still haven’t been updated to Lollipop. That’s what you get for having fragmentation on an operating system, Android struggles with it, and users certainly don’t like being stuck on older firmware. If you happen to own a Motorola Droid Ultra, Maxx or Mini then, unfortunately, you’re going to be stuck on older firmware from here on out.
Motorola has confirmed that it’s not going to release the Lollipop update for Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini. These handsets were launched back in 2013 and since they won’t be receiving Lollipop, users are going to be stuck on Android 4.4 KitKat.
The company confirmed this through a post on its official forums and apologized for the fact that Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini users will not get Lollipop even though there was hope previously that they’d get on that firmware.
“We apologize that we will not be upgrading DROID Ultra/Mini/Maxx to Android Lollipop, as we had hoped. We know how important software upgrades are to our customers, and we’re very sorry that we are unable to provide the upgrade,” Motorola said.
To show that it’s really sorry about this Motorola is now offering a discount on two of its latest handsets, the Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2, customers can sign up to get $100 off the Turbo 2 and $50 off the Maxx 2, bringing the prices down to $524 and $334 respectively.
