American Moto G will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat

There was a little bit of miscommunication regarding Motorola’s Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Moto G (or, to rephrase, Motorola could have done a better job at transmitting this information). We have all seen the event, which was live streamed, and, while the Moto G ships with Android 4.3 out of the box, Motorola has promised a “guaranteed” update to KitKat “by January 2014”. The Moto G will land in the US (and other regions) early January 2014. From this we can draw the conclusion that the Moto G will ship with KitKat in the US.

That is correct, though Motorola didn’t put it this way, at least not at the event. Talking to Mark Randal, Senior Vice President, Supply Chain & Operations at the company, Omio got an executive confirmation of the above: “Wave 2, products that we ship after Christmas, will start with KitKat <…> Wave 2 is in the US; there’s South East Asia, and other countries”.

 

What about Wave 1 products in the UK, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, France. Those will equally be upgraded to Android 4.4.
