There’s a lot of Android update news going around about various devices, but the Motorola Droid Turbo is one of the most controversial topics, though. Verizon announced that it would roll out Android 5.0.2 Lollipop soon, but fact of the matter is Motorola is not ready with the Motorola Droid Turbo update. David Schuster confirmed that Motorola is working on the Motorola Droid Turbo update to Android 5.1 Lollipop and that is the software update that will be heading our way soon enough.
Although Verizon updated its listing of the Motorola Droid Turbo to mention that the phone runs on Andorid 5.0.2 Lollipop, that’s bogus and there must have been confusion between the carrier and Motorola about the update schedule. Schuster confirmed that the Motorola Droid Turbo update is still in the testing phase and there is still work to be done before it is released.
Rumors about the Motorola Droid Turbo update rolling out this week have been spreading in the past few days, but since Android 5.1 is still in testing, we’re rather skeptical about that. Motorola did not disclose an exact release date for the update to Android 5.1, but Schuster did say it would be ready soon. Our bet is that by the end of the month, the Motorola Droid Turbo will be on Android 5.1 Lollipop. Take that with a grain of salt, though, as it is just speculation at this point.
David Schuster has been one of the most informative and responsive about the whole issue, addressing the craziness that has been going on because of Verizon and various rumors about the Motorola Droid Turbo update being just 5.0.2. Thankfully, we’ve confirmation that the OTA is going to be Android 5.1, so hopefully that will be as smooth as a baby’s bottom when it comes to performance. We will update this article as soon as we hear more about an actual release date for the new Motorola Droid Turbo update, so check back once in a while!
