Motorola commits to bringing Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Moto X, G, E, and DROIDs


Motorola Moto X G E Android 5.0 Lollipop

After Google’s big Android 5.0 Lollipop announcement this morning it’s no surprise to find OEMs (and soon, carriers) voicing their support for Google’s latest and greatest update. In a blog post, Motorola is now officially first out the gate, committing to bring Android 5.0 to their vast product portfolio, covering flagship, mid-range, and even their low-end devices.

Here’s the full list of Motorola handsets you can expect to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop in the coming months:

Moto X (1st Gen. & 2nd Gen.)
Moto G (1st Gen. & 2nd Gen.)
Moto G with 4G LTE
Moto E
Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini

Motorola’s strategy of offering a near stock Android interface — as well as unbundled Motorola apps and features — seems to be working in their favor. As we saw with last year’s KitKat release, Motorola wasn’t too far behind Nexus devices in updating many of their handsets, even those on Verizon.

Of course, Google hasn’t publicly made available the Android 5.0 Lollipop SDK (it’s not available until October 17th), so Motorola’s hands are tied at the moment. Stay tuned.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

    1. Good thing they came up with the NDK and now the Developer Preview which should theoretically make the updates this time around the same and possibly even faster.

  5. Good guy Moto comes through. They’ve really turned sh*t around since the locked bootloader #neveragain days a few years ago.

  6. “Motorola wasn’t too far behind Nexus devices in updating many of their handsets, even those on Verizon.”

    Pretty sure Moto actually BEAT a few Nexus devices with the update last time.
