If you own an original Moto X, Moto E or Moto G 4G handset and are jealous of others who own second generation Moto devices running Android 5 Lollipop then you should stop it right away.
Google has finally decided to chuck the Android 5 Lollipop distribution for first generation Moto X, Moto E and Moto G 4G smartphones as it is going to deliver the Android 5.1 Lollipop for these devices directly.
However, the release date of the upcoming iteration of the Android 5 Lollipop has not been released by Motorola’s Senior Director of Software Product Management, David Schuster, in his Google+ post.
“As some of you might know, we’ve been testing Lollipop 5.0.2 upgrades on Moto X (1st Gen), Moto E (1st Gen) and Moto G with 4G LTE (1st Gen) in several regions. In parallel we have started testing Lollipop 5.1 which was recently released by Google. Given the improvements in Lollipop 5.1, we have decided to move all efforts to upgrade these devices directly from KitKat to Lollipop 5.1,” Schuster wrote in the post.
Meanwhile, Motorola has released the Android 5.1 Lollipop for its Moto G GPe (Google Play edition). The update is available over the air (OTA).
According to Android Police, the Android 5.1 Lollipop is going to be delivered with the built number LMY47M and the file weighs 171 MB so obviously use Wi-Fi connection while updating your device in order to save your costly mobile data.
