Moto X, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini set to get Android 4.4 KitKat updates
Now that Android 4.4 KitKat has finally been made official by Google, everyone wants to know when their favorite Android device maker will update its products to this version of the OS – and which particular products will get it, of course.
Following in the footsteps of HTC, one of the first companies to step up and give us some news on this front is Motorola, perhaps unsurprisingly since it’s now owned by Google. However, unlike HTC, Motorola hasn’t committed to any specific time frame for these updates. So it might take weeks, or it might take many months until it delivers the first KitKat bits – we don’t know right now.
So far, Motorola’s list of devices that are going to get upgraded to KitKat is extremely small. The X, the Droid Ultra, the Droid Maxx, and the Droid Mini. That’s it. Sure, the company could add some new handsets to this list in the future, but that’s doubtful.
Basically, if you have any other Motorola device, you’ll be stuck on Jelly Bean – at best. This, of course, is disappointing to some. But with even Google itself now enforcing an 18-month support window for its Nexus devices (which is 100% arbitrary, we might add), perhaps this should be anything but surprising.
