Canadian carrier Rogers is going to be sending out the Android 5.1 Lollipop software for its version of the Moto G LTE during June. The information showed up on a list of the company's upcoming updates (also revealing the original Moto X will get Android 5.0.2 during June too) making the handset skip directly past Android 5.0 to 5.1.

Motorola has been doing this with several older devices and the Verizon DROID Turbo. The first gen Moto X and Turbo will be missing out on Android 5.0 too and will be moving to Android 5.0.2 instead. As for the Moto G LTE on Rogers, it gets the full Android 5.1 package that includes a bevy of new features to enhance the Lollipop experience. Unfortunately, the Carrier has not said exactly when in June the upgrade will land, but hopefully we will hear some news on that during the coming week.

Those features include a new flashlight in the Quick Setting menu, new icons, and a security feature that lets the phone stay locked in the event it is lost or stolen, unless the owner inlocks it by signing in to their Google account.
