Lollipop updates announced for VZW DROID Turbo and Moto X (2nd Gen.), AT&T Desire EYE


Earlier today we learned that the Sprint version of the HTC One M9 will soon be getting Android 5.1, but it turns out that that’s not the only handset that’ll be getting a Lollipop update in the near future.

Motorola took to Twitter today to tease that the DROID Turbo’s Lollipop update is finally — finally — almost here. The company’s tweet reads “Thank you for your patience. We hope you’re as excited as we are about #Lollipop – coming to a #DROIDTurbo near you.” It sounds like the soak test for the update is underway, so if everything goes smoothly, we could see a public rollout in the next week or so.

Sticking with Verizon and Motorola, VZW has confirmed the Android 5.1 update for its Moto X (2nd Gen.). Besides bumping the phone to 5.1, the update includes the ability to switch Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections from Quick Settings, new interruption controls, and notification volume control. Now that Verizon has confirmed this update, you Moto X (2nd Gen.) owners ought to start seeing it any day now.

Finally, HTC’s Mo Versi has announced that the Lollipop update for AT&T’s Desire Eye will start rolling out tomorrow, June 30.

Whew. That’s a lot of updates, but we can’t exactly be mad about that, especially when it means that the DROID Turbo will finally be getting its Lollipop update. If you’ve got one of the three aforementioned handsets, keep an eye out for your Lollipop treat in the coming days.
