Punit Soni, VP of Motorola Product Management has just now confirmed that Motorola’s last year flagship device; Moto X will be getting Android 5.0 L update. Though the exact timeframe of this update release isn’t mentioned, the users would certainly be delighted with this small confirmation. On the other hand, there is no word on the Android L update for Moto G and Moto E. It is highly unlikely that the Moto E will get the Android L update while Moto G might just receive some love.
Google is expected to release the Android L update for nexus devices in coming months. Looking at the way Motorola has been pushing updates, it is likely that Moto X will be getting the update within 30 days of nexus devices getting it.
Motorola has successfully penetrated into Indian market with the launch of Moto G and Moto E. Though Moto X didn’t receive the same kind of massive response, it certainly grabbed the attention in 20k price segment for sometime. The aggressive pricing of Moto G and Moto E allowed motorola to make remarkable comeback in Indian market. This is quite visible in the latest shipment reports in which Nokia seems to be lagging behind Motorola.
Most of the times, Motorola has been quickly pushing updates to their devices and that played an important role in grabbing the attention. The Moto X will probably follow the same suite of coming up with almost stock experience with minimal customization.
