Motorola has announced that the Moto X 2014 will receive the long awaited Android 5.1 update next week, as reported in this article at Load the Game. The software update will first be made available to users in Brazil, and a United States rollout is expected in the week thereafter. An exact release date for European users has yet to be announced but is expected to be released around the middle of May.
The Android 5.1 update is welcome news to Moto X users as the software update will fix a variety of issues related to the Lollipop platform. Issues such as excessive battery usage and intermittent connectivity are just some of the problems that have plagued users. In addition to these fixes, the Moto Display and Moto Actions will also receive various updates that addresses numerous issues.
While the Moto X 2013 is already slated to receive the update, users with older versions of the phone must wait until a working version can be released for those devices. This includes the 1st generation Moto X device that as of now still does not have the Android 5.1 update.
The official Motorola update page has yet to be updated to reflect the Android 5.1 update. Still, the various Moto X devices (1st generation and 2nd generation) are still noted to have Lollipop upgrades in the works. Motorola has indicated, however, that their current plans will evolve over time, and as such, users are advised to check back in at regular intervals to check the latest status.
