Moto X, Moto G Android L 5.0 “Lollipop” Update Confirmed, Moto E Update Doubtful [Exclusive]

Moto X, Moto G Android L 5.0 Lollipop Update Confirmed, Moto E Update Doubtful [Exclusive] Moto X Moto G Moto E2 300x224Motorola Moto X, Moto G and Moto E might not be the best spec’d phones out there, but they are easily among the most popular ones. In a recent tip that we’ve received, it seems that Motorola’s own customer support has confirmed that while the Moto X and Moto G devices will be a part of Android 5.0 L rollout (when it releases eventually), owners of Moto E might not be so fortunate.

Motorola rep confirms Android L update for the Moto X and Moto G

Customer support isn’t usually the most helpful place when it comes to matters concerning firmware updates, however, every once in a while there is an exception and it looks like this instance is one of them. One of our loyal readers has provided us a screenshot of his conversation with an official Motorola representative. The toned down version of the story is that the Moto X and Moto G are inevitably going to get the Android 5.0 L update, whereas the Moto E may or may not get it. Should you be so interested, here are the screenshots of his entire conversation with the Motorola’s executive.

This isn’t the first time that the Android 5.0 L update for the Moto X and Moto G has made it to the headlines. Not too long ago, reports started turning up indicating that the Moto X and Moto G devices were bound for an Android L update. However, back then, Motorola was quick to issue an official statement that the Facebook page (from where this rumour originated) was a fake one, and had absolutely no association with the company. Interestingly, even while rebutting the rumour, Motorola never stated that the Moto X and Moto G aren’t going to get updated, they simply said that the Facebook page wasn’t associated with them.

Motorola has been surprisingly quick with firmware updates since the Google acquisition. In fact, the Verizon Moto X was the first device (even before the Nexus) to get the KitKat update, which is obviously nothing short of a feat. Motorola has assured its customers that even after Lenovo takes over charge, the road to quick updates is not going to meet a dead end, and the way stars are aligning for the Moto X and Moto G, it seems that Motorola’s assurance wasn’t an empty one after all.

We would love to read our readers’ thoughts on this new development. Make sure to make your opinion count in the comments’ section below.

    Do you really know the Moto X specs? Are you aware of Motorola X8 Computing System?
    What do you mean by best spec’d phones?

    Motorola’s moto e was said the moto e will receive the next MAJOR UPDATE and that 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 is just a cherry on top those two are not major updates people just need to watch and listen to Motorola and not from others about what phone will and will not get an update
