AT&T’s Moto X gets Android 4.4. KitKat. Moto G launched in Canada
AT&T has officially confirmed that an Android 4.4 KitKat update for its Moto X is being rolled-out as of today (November 22). The update – a 326.5MB file – can be downloaded over-the-air.
AT&T is the second US carrier that started pushing KitKat to the Moto X – after Verizon, which did it at the beginning of this week. A detailed list of novelties included in the update (like “key enhancements to the user interface, phone dialer app, focus and exposure, and gallery apps”) is available at AT&T here.
The Moto X can be bought from AT&T online for as low as $49.99.
In related news, Motorola’s latest smartphone, the Moto G, is now available in Canada (for $200 outright, or $0 on contract) At the moment, Canadian customers can buy it only from Telus and Koodo Mobile, which are the first North American carriers to offer the device.
Introduced as a cheaper alternative to the Moto X (as well as to many other Android smartphones out there), the Moto G features a 4.5 inch HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, 5MP rear camera, and a 2,070 mAh battery. The handset runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but it will be updated to KitKat in the near future.
