With Motorola in limbo as the company awaits moving from Google to Lenovo, there has been speculation as to what would happen with its devices and its future with Android. One of the benefits of being under Google's wing was the Moto X and Moto G getting preference for Android updates, but with Android L we wondered if Motorola would still get the same treatment.

The answer seems to be a resounding yes as the company has confirmed that its smartphone line-up will be getting the newly announced Android L. That's good news, because despite Motorola being bought by Lenovo, the American company has still grasped the Android ethos perhaps better than any other manufacturer. The Moto X and Moto G make the most of Android and outside of Google's own Nexus and Play Editions, they represent the closest to stock Android you can get on a third party device.

The Motorola support team has now confirmed that the Moto X flagship and the Moto G will both get Android L, although there is still no word on the Moto E. Of course, we wouldn?t take the customer support teams? word at face value as these decisions usually come from a little higher, but they must be getting their info from somewhere.

The Moto X is likely to be replaced by the Moto X+1 before Android L hits, so it is almost guaranteed that the new flagship will also get the bump to the newer platform. There is no word on when exactly any of Motorola's devices will get the upgrade, but we suspect the company will be pretty quick once Android L launches officially. As for the Moto E, while there is nothing official from Motorola just yet we suspect the budget handset will also have a date with Android L in the future.
