Verizon’s Moto X is the first to be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat – starting today
Motorola has just announced that its Moto X sold by Verizon is being updated to Android 4.4 KitKat, in phases, starting today, November 19. Thus, Verizon’s version of the handset becomes the first to get rid of the older Android Jelly Bean. Other versions should be updated in the near future.
As you may already know, KitKat brings many improvements, including restyled navigation bar, enhanced phone dialer, new Hangout app, updated camera app, and so on. For a wider list of enhancements included in Android 4.4 KitKat you can go here at Motorola.
Verizon is selling the Moto X (in black and white) for $99.99 on contract, or $499.99 without any agreement.
Motorola’s other new smartphone (the cheap Moto G) will run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box when it debuts later this quarter in the US – unlike the Moto G models that are already available in Europe and Brazil, which are running 4.3 Jelly Bean.
