Verizon Moto X soak test participants receiving invites to test new firmware


Motorola Moto X DSC00695

Verizon and Motorola appear to be testing out new firmware for their version of the Moto X as soak test invites are going out to the adventurous folks not afraid to sign up for these things. As usual we don’t get any idea what to expect, though we wouldn’t expect them to roll out new firmware without also jumping to a new version of Android.

You obviously won’t be expecting Android L, but Android 4.4.3 or 4.4.4 are still on the table for this phone. The latter is already confirmed to be headed to Verizon’s DROID phones so we wouldn’t be surprised if the Moto X is in line for a similar upgrade.

In either case we wouldn’t expect many sweeping changes as this is likely a bug fixing and stability improvement upgrade. As unexciting as it may be, though, we’ll be keeping an eye on it. Be sure to check your email to see if you’ve been invited (and if you aren’t signed up to test Motorola firmware, head here to figure out how you can get in on all the fun).

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    Sorry, I haven’t really been keep up, but when you say this, do you mean we obviously won’t be expecting it NOW, or we won’t be expecting it EVER?

  3. Interesting as I have participated in every soak test so far on this device yet I have received nothing yet this time around.

    1. Seems they’re keeping the test groups pretty small to get better feedback.

  4. When will Motorola make a Verizon 64GB Moto X?!

      1. Yah that’s not a Verizon-compatible 64GB Moto X.
