We have important news for Motorola fans and consumers – the Motorola Moto X will be getting the Android 4.4 KitKat firmware update in the weeks to come. Motorola announced saying that its Moto X smartphone would receive the latest OS update ‘in a matter of weeks.’
If you happen to be an Android consumer, you must have definitely loved the Motorola Moto X smartphone! It was the first smartphone ever that provided you with customization options that were never possible before. The Motorola Moto X is the flagship smartphone of the company and initially had Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean or Android 4.3 Jelly Bean right out of the box (depending upon when you bought the smartphone).
But Motorola has been fast enough to start working on the Android 4.4 KitKat update for its new flagship smartphone. The company is now operated by Google and so this step was necessary anyways. But the Motorola people did not give out any other detail about the Android 4.4 KitKat firmware update, the only thing we know is that the update will be available ‘in a matter of weeks.’
Now if you are wondering how and when all this happened, we have all the answers you need! Motorola gave out the Android 4.4 KitKat update announcement during the official launch event of the Motorola Moto G, the company’s mid-range smartphone that is based on the Moto X.
Motorola now has 2 smartphones in the Moto series, the Motorola Moto X and the Motorola Moto G. The Motorola Moto X is still the flagship model since the Motorola Moto G is a low powered and trimmed down version of the Moto X. We know that a number of consumers will be interested in the Motorola Moto G and one of the most important reasons will be the economical price tag that this smartphone carries.
And by the way, you should know that the Motorola Moto G will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. But the company has already made the official announcement saying that the Moto G will also soon receive the Android 4.4 KitKat firmware update.
