Google has announced that the Android 5.0 will be called Lollipop, at the same time Motorola via its official blog also confirmed that some phones will be getting an official update to Lollipop, the lucky smartphones are Moto X (1st and 2nd Gen), Moto G (1st and 2nd Gen), the 4G LTE version of the Moto G, Moto E and the 2013-released Verizon Droid Family (Droid Maxx, Ultra and Mini).
Although it have been planned to get a major OS upgrade sometime soon, but Motorola did not confirm whether all the variants of the Moto X will get Android 5.0 update Lollipop at the same time or sequentially, most likely the unlocked version or the developer will get it earlier than the carrier branded models.
As we know, the Moto X was released in several variants. In the US, the 1st Generation of Moto X available on Verizon Wireless (XT1060), AT&T (XT1058), T-Mobile (XT1053), Sprint (XT1056), US Cellular (XT1055), and many others. We have no idea which will get it first, but if we turn back the time, the Verizon models got the Android 4.4.4 update in July, while others rolled out in August and September, even the US Cellular models not yet get it.
As noted in the official Motorola blog, they also plans to deliver the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to the Moto X 2nd Gen., just like the others, with no time frames. They also said that once it’s officially released by Google, Motorola will definitely bring it to you. It’s likely that the Pure Edition will be the first to get it, since it unlocked and doesn’t need to passing the long way carrier’s certification.
If you’ve been flashing a lot of ROM before, the time frame isn’t serious a problem, simply because we could try the custom ROM. It’s time to wait for CM12 based on Lollipop from the CyanogenMod team.
