Unfortunately, it looks like the 2015 version of the Motorola Moto E will only be updated in select regions. Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Asia will get the update, China is specifically excluded, but the manufacturer makes no mention of the United States. Until Motorola clarifies this situation, we remain optimistic that the US version of the handset will also get updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
As Motorola notes, Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with numerous improvements, such as a battery-saving Doze mode, Google Now on Tap, Android Pay, a more thorough app permission system, as well as many others. For a closer look at the most recent Android version currently available, make sure to check out our full Android 6.0 Marshmallow review.
Now that Motorola has confirmed that the 2nd-generation Motorola Moto E will get its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, purchasing the handset makes a lot of sense if you're in the market for an entry-level Android device.
