Moto X 2013 Android Lollipop update delayed

Motorola was one of the first phone manufacturers to offer the latest Android Lollipop update to its customers, a move that was to be expected from a company that has always been diligent with updating its devices as soon as possible. However, the company didn’t manage to push out the highly anticipated update to all of its gadgets yet, particularly, the first generation Motorola Moto X is still Lollipop-less at the moment. The Moto X 2013 is still a pretty popular smartphone to this day despite being released back in 2013, so it’s not surprising to see that a large number of users are becoming restless at the thought that Android Lollipop might not come to their device after all.

Well, Motorola promises on Twitter that this will not be the case, as the update is being worked on as we speak. However, the company seems to have run into some problems with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset found on the Moto X 2013 and was forced to delay the Android Lollipop OTA rollout for a bit. Motorola didn’t announce a release date, so we don’t know when Android Lollipop is scheduled to reach the smartphone. Hopefully, it won’t take very long, but there’s just no way of knowing for certain at the moment. What we do know however, is that the first generation Moto X will not be skipping directly to Android 5.1 Lollipop as this version has not been officially launched by Google yet. Instead, the device will likely get either Android 5.0 Lollipop or Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

As a reminder, the first generation Moto X is a 2013 smartphone that sports a 4.7 inch display with 720 x 1080 resolution, 312 pixel density, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Hardware-wise, you will find the said Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, Andreno 330 GPU, and 2 GB of RAM. Other specifications for the Moto X 2013 include: 10 MP primary camera coupled with a 2 MP secondary sensor, 2,200 mAh battery, and 16/ 32/ 64 GB internal storage memory configurations.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.
