Motorola smartphones launched in 2013 and 2014 to receive Lollipop update really soon

Motorola is one of the manufacturers that announced that it will be rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its smartphones soon after the commercial availability of the same. Sadly, it took Motorola users around couple of months to receive the update and still there is no specific date for the roll-out of the update.


Now, a Motorola design engineer, Luciano Carvalho has spilled the beans regarding the Lollipop update. He has claimed that there was a delay in the roll-out of the update as there were bugs in the Android 5.0 Lollipop and the firm had to take enough time to fix these issues. Also, it was revealed by the executive that Motorola will be skipping the v5.0 and v5.0.1 and will directly roll-out the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OTA update.

"It's no secret that when 5.0 launched it still had bugs. And, when we update our products, we end up finding more bugs that need to be fixed. There are a lot of reasons for what that happen, but, basically, each phone has a unique set of components and a way they interact. When Google creates a new release, they don't validate it for all the possible combinations there are, and they won't fix anything that's not reproducible on a Nexus device, that's our job," said Carvalho in the Google+ post.

Talking about the devices that will receive this update, the Motorola executive has revealed that those smartphones that were launched by the firm in 2013 and 2014 are eligible for the same.

Some of the noteworthy mentions that will get the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop include Moto E, Moto G, Moto X, Moto G (2nd Gen), Motorola Droid Turbo, Moto Maxx, Motorola Droid Maxx, Droid Mini and Droid Ultra. Surprisingly, the Moto X (2nd Gen) has already starting receiving the update in several regions since December 2014.

Before trying to update your Motorola device to Lollipop, users will have to make sure that their device is installed with the latest version of Motorola Update Services available on Google Play Store.
