Moto DROID Turbo DSC09781

Yesterday, Motorola teased the Android 5.1 update for the Motorola DROID Turbo yet again, letting us know once more than it was coming. The tweet more or less signaled the soak test which officially kicked off yesterday, according to Motorola Software Product Manager David Schuster. While soak tests usually mean that a full rollout is right around the corner (providing no serious bugs are found during this time), they’re limited to a select few of users from Motorola’s product forum.

The real question on everyone’s mind is when we — as in us regular folk — will see that sweet update hitting our DROID Turbos. We still don’t have an exact date, but Schuster did mention that if all goes well, we can expect a full roll out as soon as this week. Remember, it took barely 3 days for the Moto X’s Android 5.1 update went from soak to full deployment. With all that DROID Turbos have had to suffer through (the Turbo is still on KitKat, mind you), we can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel.

For a look at all that’s new, check out Motorola’s official changelog for the Motorola DROID Turbo right here.

UPDATE: Looks it’s officially going live (in phases) starting tomorrow!
