UK Moto X Android 4.4.4 rollout now underway

The UK model Moto X (XT1052) is the latest version of the handset to see a bump up to Android 4.4.4, the latest version of Google's OS. Alongside the new Android version, the updated Moto X firmware includes camera improvements, the ability to pause video while it's recording, and an updated dialer app that matches the look of the latest stock Google dialer in 4.4.3 and above.

Perhaps just as important, it's now possible to turn off the persistent carrier text in the top-left corner of the status bar — a long-running annoyance with Motorola handsets. To do so, go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > More > Mobile networks, and uncheck "Show mobile network."

Unlocked Moto X owners in the UK can go to Settings > About phone > System updates to grab the latest OTA.

  • Fragmentation at its finest. Posted via Android Central App
  • My UK Moto X received the 4.4.4 update 2 weeks ago! Posted via Android Central App
  • Same here i'm using an 02 model and got my update weeks ago Posted via Android Central App from my moto x
  • Me too. . A little late! Posted via Android Central App
  • You are wrong..
    Tmobile unlocked still using 4.4.3 . . .
  • Maybe Carrier specific model is subject to TMobile approval. The UK model which 4.4.4 has been rolled out is the XT1052 retail version. This was released on the 7 Aug 2014 according to Motorola Support Site. Posted via Android Central App
  • Thanks for the Tip Alex, i got the update on my Moto X about a month ago, and i had remembered that Moto had agreed to take this annoying thing out. So i was quite annoyed wen after the update it was still there. Anyway, thanks for the tip
  • Was this on 4.4.3 prior or just 4.4.2? Seems like 4.4.4 is minor as long as you're using the play story, XT1053 will probably skip it for L
  • Like others I recieved this update in the UK over two weeks ago. Did think it was weird that this story wasnt posted back then. Still loving this phone - beats my previous phones by a mile. Still might be tempted by the +1 when it shows.
  • Still waiting on Sprint in the US... Come ON. Geez... Posted via Android Central App
