Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE

It’s been a while since we’ve heard any news regarding Sprint’s Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE. The good news is that that’s changing today. The bad news? Well, it doesn’t look like the Photon Q 4G LTE will be getting any more updates.

Motorola has updated its update support page to say that the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE will remain on Android 4.1.2. Previously the Photon Q 4G LTE was listed as “Future plan coming soon.”

It’s always kind of a bummer when we learn that a device won’t receive any more major OS updates, especially when it only got one such upgrade during its lifespan. But hey, at least you Photon Q 4G LTE owners still have one thing that most other smartphones released nowadays don’t: a physical QWERTY keyboard. That’s worth something, right?
