Well, it looks like the mystery of the Verizon Moto X soak test has been solved.

Verizon has updated its Moto X support page with information on the device’s Android 4.4.4 update. Interestingly, Verizon appears to have simply copied its Moto G Android 4.4.4 update information and pasted it into a Moto X document, complete with the Moto G’s “falcon” codename (the Moto X is “ghost”). According to Verizon’s document, these are the changes that Moto X owners can expect to see:

CAMERA

  • Improved camera picture quality
    • Improved photos in fluorescent lighting 
    • Enhanced dynamic range
  • Ability to pause video recording
    • Offers pause/resume button on the finder

PHONE DIALER

  • New graphical layout and colors
    • Improves consistency and usability

Neither Motorola nor Verizon have made any official announcements regarding an Android 4.4.4 update for the Big Red Moto X, but now that this support doc has been posted, you Verizon Moto X users may want to keep an eye out for the update to hit your notification tray. You can also check for it manually by heading into Settings > About phone > System updates.
