Those who are still holding on to their Motorola Droid Turbo might be interested to find out that there’s a chance that Marshmallow might be released for their handset in the near future. A new certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance has been spotted which suggests that the Marshmallow update is being developed for this smartphone. The device is currently on Android 5.1 Lollipop.

The certification from Wi-Fi Alliance has been issued to a Motorola smartphone bearing model number XT1254, that’s the model number of the original Motorola Droid Turbo.

This certification document mentions the device’s operating system as Android 6.0 Marshmallow even though it’s officially on Android 5.1 Lollipop. This could mean that the device that was sent to Wi-Fi Alliance for certification was running Marshmallow.

Motorola launched the Droid Turbo back in late 2014 and at that time it came with Android 4.4.4 Kitkat running straight out of the box. It took a year for this handset to be upgraded to Android 5.1 Lollipop.

If this certification is anything to go by, this means that Marshmallow is soon going to arrive for the original Droid Turbo. The update will bring several new features to the handset, aside from some changes to the user interface, and overall improvements.

However, it’s unclear at this point in time when the update is going to be rolled out so all users can do at this point in time is keep their fingers crossed.
