We found out earlier this week that Motorola's new budget handset, the Moto G, will be updated to the new Android 4.4 KitKat by the end of January. However the manufacturer has now confirmed that in the U.S. and other countries launching the device early next year, it'll actually arrive with Android 4.4 out of the box. Speaking with Omio recently, Motorola SVP Mark Randall elaborated on the company's international rollout plans: "Wave 2, products that we ship after Christmas, will start with KitKat [...] Wave 2 is in the US; there’s South East Asia, and other countries."
Recently launched in Europe and Latin America, Moto G is Motorola's attempt to shake up the entry-level smartphone market, with a combination of relatively high-end internals and a competitive price point. For more on the Moto G, check out our hands-on coverage from the European launch event earlier this week.
As for the Moto X, that's due to receive KitKat in "a matter of weeks."
