Moto X

Motorola's already confirmed that the Moto X will be upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat. No surprise there. And today, at the Moto G event in Brazil, we get at least a vague idea of when we might expect it. 

Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside at today's event said the Moto X can expect to be updated "in a matter of weeks." Nothing more specific than that, unfortunately. But for now, we'll take it.

Moto X to get Android 4.4 KitKat 'in a matter of weeks'


I am waiting for my dang contract to finish so I can get it. It ends on the 12th of December. AN ENTIRE MONTH AWAY.

In the same boat: just ordered my Moto X off eBay yesterday. Impatiently awaiting it's arrival in a few days. It was this or the N5; chose this 'n plus it's getting 4.4. I'd say win-win.

I'd say a month after at the most wish isn't bad at all. They got the camera update about a month after the update initially went out.

This is what you get when you don't skin the life out of a phone. *Cough* Galaxy Phones. I'm ready for that soak test.

I'm expecting that within 10 days the first forum threads will pop up bitching about how the X doesn't have 4.4 yet even though moto promised it and how this is a fail for moto

Now, I'm a little disappointed that I got the at&t carrier unlocked version to use on t mobile as at&t's updates are not as fast. Here's to hoping that the 4.4 update comes out for at&t as fast as t mobile.

And then the DROID's attack... Ha, at least the camera update came in a more timely mannor. They are working at faster updates, that makes me happy.

This. As long as Moto and Google can keep Big Red from getting in the way of timely updates I'll be happy. Love seeing stuff like this because I know my Maxx can't be far behind... :)

I was thinking the same thing. It's been a strange experience getting an updates so quickly on Verizon. and right after that, this news comes out. Its been a nice trend.

Hey Phil. Two questions if you get a chance to ask someone that knows. 1) Dev edition devices, will they be updated sooner or with the rest of the carrier branded ones? 2) Tap to pay in Gwallet. Is the X going to take advantage of HCE and tap to pay in wallet now? Cheers.

The dev editions will always see the update before the carrier variants

Unfortunately it's a matter of 50 days before my upgrade hits, but this is good news. And at this rate the X will have 4.4 before the EVO LTE has 4.2 or 4.3. Man HTC sucks and I'm glad to be done with them for good.

All device running 4.3 will have 4.4 "in a matter of weeks." Just depends on what "a matter of weeks" means to you.

But there are 52 weeks in a year. He mentioned weeks but didn't quantify the number of weeks. That's vague management speak as usual.

I'm kinda expecting my Verizon Moto X to get KitKat before the end of the year now. :)

BUT will it be blocked to a further date beyond it's release, by the carriers so they can "Certify" it for their precious networks? /AT&Tproblems
