Motorola has announced a new smartphone today, a sequel to the 2014 budget device, the Moto E. The second generation Moto E is another entry level attempt from the company and like the original handset, it comes with modest but appealing specs for its affordable price. Interestingly, the device is launching in both LTE and non-LTE forms.
US carrier AT&T has started sending out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to the 2014 second generation Motorola Moto X. The update is being sent by the company now and should be arriving on your device in the form of a notification. As always, the update is in stage, so you may gave to wait a couple of days depending on where you are located.
The Motorola DROID Turbo is one of the highest spec'd smartphones on the market, but it is of course an exclusive in the US with the country's largest carrier, Verizon. However, Motorola also rolled out an international version, the equally special Moto Maxx, although it was a handset that was bizarrely only launched in Latin America.
Motorola has been updating its smartphones to Android 5.0 Lollipop recently and has confirmed even 2013 DROID's will be getting the bump to Google's latest and greatest. The company has really been on the ball, but one smartphone is conspicuous by its absence from the Lollipop party. Motorola has updated 1st and 2nd gen Moto G's, the Moto E, and the second gen Moto X, but not the original Moto X.
Motorola's second generation Moto G has been with us since early September, but it has continued the trend of the first device and is a bang for buck giant. However, Motorola has now unveiled a new variant, one that may make the Moto G 2014 even more of a bargain. The company has rolled out the Moto G 2014 LTE in Brazil.
Motorola is starting to make its presence felt in arguably the biggest emerging market of them all, India. Even though Samsung and locals like Micromax are getting most of the sales in the country, Motorola is succeeding too with 3 million smartphones sold in India since February 2014.
Motorola's Moto E is nearing a year old, which of course in the smartphone world means it is due to be refreshed. The affordable but well spec'd handset is still doing well in the entry level market, but Motorola has been known to be working on a replacement for some time. Android Police has now uncovered two renders of the Moto E 2, and it looks as though the company has not strayed too far away from the original.
Motorola usually likes to celebrate holidays with a good sale, and this Valentina's Day will be no different. That American brand is starting a series of deals starting from February 2, and there are some big savings to be had.
Motorola announced earlier this month that the company is returning to China with three of its devices, the Moto X, Moto G LTE, and the Moto X Pro (a re-tooled Nexus 6). Today Motorola held an event in China to officially unveil those handsets and confirming their launch dates.
If you live in India and own either the original Moto G or the 2014 Moto G then you are in luck as Motorola is rolling out a new update for the handsets in the country. The bump brings the devices up to date with Google's latest Android build, 5.0 Lollipop and is rolling out to the Moto G?s now. India is getting the update a little late as the Moto G was the first non-Nexus device to get 5.0 Lollipop in November.
