Other than the Nexus devices, it used to be only Moto X Pure Edition that supported Project Fi, and now, Moto devices will also be the first ones to get Android Marshmallow other than “Nexus 5X” and “Nexus 6P.”
Major players in the smartphone manufacturing business, Samsung, Motorola and Sony, have announced a list of phones that can be upgraded to Android Marshmallow. But Motorola is going to be the first one to introduce this latest OS to its devices.
The smartphones launched in 2015 are the first ones to get the update. Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), Moto X Play, Moto X Style (3rd gen) and Moto G (Gen 3) are some of them. As listed on Motorola’s official blog, the 2014 devices, too, will be included in the list. As per the blog, these are the smartphones:
2014 Moto X Pure Edition in the U.S. (2nd gen)
2014 Moto X in Latin America, Europe and Asia (2nd gen)
2014 Moto G and Moto G with 4G LTE (2nd gen)
2014 Moto MAXX
2014 Moto Turbo
The blog has not mentioned the exact date Android Marshmallow should be expected on Moto devices, but Bjorn Kilburn, VP Software Product Management, has promised to bring the update as soon as possible. As old devices were not manufactured keeping Android 6.0 and its features in mind, companies are finding it difficult to bring this update to old devices. Motorola can make a few changes to the list mentioned above, as the post reads, “Things may change.”
So keep watching this space for the latest scoop on Moto devices and Android M.
