After Google announced Marshmallow and the new Nexus family, HTC was the first 3rd party OEM to chime in on its plans for Android 6.0. Now it is Motorola’s turn. In an official blog post, Motorola detailed some of the best features found in Marshmallow and also gave a list of the devices confirmed to be getting the update.
Motorola is known for being pretty good when it comes to software updates, and so the devices omitted from the update list come as at least a little of a surprise. Most notably, the US carrier versions of the Moto X (2014) are being left out of the fun, as is the Motorola Moto E (both the original and the 2015 version). The original Moto X and Moto G are also being left out, though that’s a little less surprising given their age.
Now it is important to note that Motorola says “right now we have plans to upgrade the following Motorola devices. Things may change, so please refer to our software upgrade page for the latest, and specifics by country.” That means that they could still be negotiating with carriers and don’t want to get our hopes up, or it could mean they are really leaving US Moto X (2014) devices in the dark.
