Motorola release notes point to bunch of incoming Android 5.1 updates: Moto X, Moto E
Motorola’s got a mixed track record as of late with Android updates. Some of the time we see them released at near record speed, while other updates languish for months on end. For those of you who have been anxiously looking forward to Motorola getting the ball rolling on updates for your phone, we may have some good news this evening, as the manufacturer has been spotted posting release notes for updates for quite a few of its models.
Newly-published release notes are available for the Android 5.1 update for the Moto E 2015, Moto X 2014 (with both AT&T and T-Mobile -presumably the Pure Edition- carrier variants listed), and maybe most eagerly anticipated of all, the original Moto X 2013.
While sometimes when we see Motorola make this sort of info available we’re just looking at a soak test, the manufacturer posting this data for so many handsets in such a short time frame like this has us optimistic that it’s really planning a big public push with update availability. We wouldn’t bet on necessarily seeing all these releases emerge straight away, but if you were to suggest that they’ll start going out over the course of the next week or so, we’d probably take that bet.
