Motorola has announced that the first generation Moto X, Moto G LTE and Moto E will be skipping the Android 5.0 update and all three handsets will go straight to Android 5.1.
The news that the three handsets will go straight to Android 5.1 rather than receiving the Android 5.0 update was announced my Motorola’s David Schuster.
As some of you might know, we’ve been testing Lollipop 5.0.2 upgrades on Moto X (1st Gen), Moto E (1st Gen) and Moto G with 4G LTE (1st Gen) in several regions. In parallel we have started testing Lollipop 5.1 which was recently released by Google. Given the improvements in Lollipop 5.1, we have decided to move all efforts to upgrade these devices directly from KitKat to Lollipop 5.1.
As yet there are no details on when the Android 5.1 Lollipop update will be released for the first generation Moto X, Moto E and Moto G LTE, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
