The 2014 variant of the Motorola Moto G (the second generation one) has been given its upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the United States, with the roll out starting today (Mar. 1). The update follows just a couple of weeks after Motorola sent out Marshmallow to the 2014 Moto G in India, and so beginning the upgrade program for the handset.
The beefy Moto X Force, with all its shatterproof screen rugged goodness, is making its debut in India, three months after its launch in other global regions. The Motorola device is the latest push from parent company Lenovo to get more market share in India, Lenovo is currently the fifth largest manufacturer in the country.
You may remember that it was announced recently that Motorola is no longer Motorola and is now Moto, according to Lenovo, which bought Motorola two years ago. A mouthful indeed, but the crux is, Motorola still exists, but phone branding will now be designated to Moto, and Lenovo is now promising some exciting new smartphones for the U.S. market this year.
The Motorola DROID Turbo 2 Employee Edition is getting updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, further highlighting that Motorola?s Marshmallow roll out is in full swing. The Employee Edition is the variant of the handset that is given to Verizon employees, the largest carrier in the United States offers the DROID Turbo 2 exclusively.
Motorola is one of the companies we can rely on to update its handsets to the latest Android builds in quick and efficient fashion, so it was hardly a surprise when the company detailed its update schedule in the wake of Android 6.0 Marshmallow's launch.
Motorola announced the Moto 360 Sport alongside the 2015 edition of the regular Moto 360, but while the latter has been available for some time, consumers are still unable to get the 360 Sport. That is about to change through December and January as Motorola confirmed the price and launch date for the smartwatch.
Motorola has announced a special edition collaboration with New York based designer Jonathan Adler, and the result is the new Moto X Pure Collection. These three phones have been designed by Adler and brings a unique touch to Motorola's current flagship with three new designs that will not be available through the normal Moto Maker process.
Motorola is always one of the quickest companies to upgrade to new Android builds, mainly because its handsets offer a light take on the platform. The Lenovo owned U.S. company is now starting its Android 6.0 Marshmallow rollout with the Moto X Style and the 2014 Moto X.
The Motorola Moto X Force, or the DROID Turbo 2 as it is known in the United States, is making its debut in the UK, available for pre-order. The company says the handset will start shipping on November 9, and will boast a solid price of £497.99 for a SIM free unlocked device. That is a good price compared to other flagships, which with its specs, the Moto X Force most definitely is.
Motorola and Verizon announced the DROID Turbo 2 yesterday, a decked out flagship with rugged build and a ShatterSheild screen. As always, Motorola will also launch the handset in other regions, without the DROID name and with Verizon on board. That international variant has been announced today as the Moto X Force, which becomes the company's most spec'd out smartphone (the Moto X Pure Edition is the flagship still).
