The information comes, again, from the Google+ account of David Schuster (who is confirming himself as one of the most active members of the company). The fact is that the versions with Android 5.1 for the Motorola Moto G LTE and Moto E it is the so-called “soak”, which is the initial one that some chosen users receive to check that everything is going as it should. But, yes, the development is the one theoretically chosen to be deployed definitively -generally the normal deployment occurs one or two weeks after the arrival of which we speak-.
The announcement indicates, in the case of the Motorola Moto G LTE, that the first models to receive Android 5.1 will be those from the US, although we must not forget that in Brazil and India They have already been conducting tests of this firmware where some problems were detected … and that have already been solved according to Schuster.
Motorola Moto E first generation
In this model, certain problems had also been detected so that its firmware with Android 5.1 was fully functional, and hence the delay in the arrival of this (everything pointed to a component from an external company). The fact is that it has been announced that you see the light at the end of the tunnel for this terminal, although it has been indicated that in this case it will be necessary to wait a few weeks to confirm that the solutions are stable and start with the deployment.
The fact is that the Motorola Moto G LTE and Moto E in a very short time will have their corresponding Android 5.1 updates, which are good news for users who have any of these phones. They will accompany, therefore, the Moto X 2014 (of which by the way the test versions for Verizon and AT&T have been confirmed), so the circle is closed in the product range of this company in relation to this version of the Google operating system.
