Motorola has been pretty quick with its Android updates recently, and it appears that that’s going to continue with Android 5.1.
Motorola says that it’s started to push Android 5.1 to Moto X (2nd Gen.) owners in Brazil as part of a soak test at “select retail partners.” Meanwhile, the company has also started sending 5.1 to the Moto E with 4G LTE (2nd Gen.) in the U.S. And as for the DROID Turbo, Motorola’s David Schuster reaffirmed that Moto is working with Verizon on bumping the Turbo from Android 4.4 to Android 5.1, telling us to “stay tuned for updates to come.”
Motorola also detailed a new Moto Action that’ll be included with Android 5.1. Once you’ve updated, you’ll be able to chop twice to quickly turn your device’s flashlight on and then chop twice again to turn it off.
The Android 5.1 update for the Moto X (2nd Gen.) is going to be a beefy one, offering features like reduced camera noise in low-light photos, support for switching Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections from Quick Settings, a bunch of bug fixes, and more. It’s unclear when we’ll start to see Motorola push Android 5.1 to Moto X units outside of Brazil, but I’d bet that it won’t be much longer before more territories see the update.
