Seemingly ages after its successor got an update to Lollipop, the original Moto X is poised to do the same with a soak test under way right now.
The soak test — a selection of users that receive the update to give it a proper spin before a wider release, just to make sure everything's okay — would bring the 2013 Moto X up to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. This comes months after the newer 2014 Moto X, even including carrier editions, received its own update to Lollipop.
Words of the test comes from Motorola's Luciano Carvalho, who says:
Is it true that the user test phase started for the original Moto X? Well, that was supposed to be a secret, but who am I kidding, this is the internet, and as per the screenshots and articles out already, you know it's true.
So, yes, the first-generation Moto X is getting a Lollipop soak test, and if all goes well, that's a strong sign that Android 5.0.2 will be rolling out to the broader Moto X community in short order.
