Motorola Droid Razr HD, Maxx HD and Razr M should be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat in the coming weeks

According to David Schuster, who is Motorola Mobility's Senior Director of Software Product Management, it’s going to be “a few more weeks” before “the 2012 Droid family” will get KitKat. Reportedly, Motorola has “made great progress” with the updates - thus, with a bit of luck, users could start seeing update notifications before the end of April.
All three Droids ran Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch, so it’s nice to see they'll be receiving KitKat. We’ll report back when the updates are actually rolling out.
At the moment, only the Droid Razr M can still be purchased at Verizon (at least online). The other two handsets have been replaced by the newer Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx.

I just can't believe u only got 2 vote (1 is mine btw),, that's true,,,not just iSammy,Lg,Sony they all tasted more success than Moto but still they don't prioritize updates for older ones much but Moto after having thrown like a child with no parent ,,, still shows signs of promising improvement and future

Not sure why they say "2012 droid family". This would then include the Razr, Razr Maxx, and Droid 4 (which is my current phone). The phones getting upgraded all came out in late 2012.

Up until a couple months ago, my phone was the Razr Maxx. Slow to update to ICS, slow to update to JB, and apparently stuck there forever. I'm glad the next generation phones are getting the KK update, but I'm baffled as way the original Razrs are getting the shaft, because with the lag I suffered with my Razr Maxx, I'm sure it could have benefited from KK. I've since switched to T-Mobile. I'm saving a fu#$ton of money, plus I can use unlocked phones which aren't tied town to bull$#it provider-approved, months-late updates like Verizon is infamous for.

I did just check and you are right. The original Razr came out in 2011, but the Droid 4 and Maxx came out in 2012 and therefore are technically part of the 2012 family. And I too forgot about the TI OMAP issue.

that's great for Moto. the Razr M was actually a REALLY popular phone for Verizon which i'm sure is why they're still selling it. i'm glad to see it in particular is still being supported.

Actually the Motorola Droid Razr HD and the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD were both released in Oct 2012. They are the same except the maxx has 16 more GB of internal storage (32 gb vs 16gb) and a larger battery (3300 vs 2600). The HD models which the article is taking about use a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 processor. It was the original Razr and Razr Maxx (not HD) that was introduced in late 2011 that used the TI OMAP4430 chip.

This is great and all, but come on Motorola, where's 4.4.2 for us 2013 Droid owners? It's been 2 months since the Moto X got it. I'm starting to regret not waiting longer for custom Moto X designs on Verizon. Why do I have to be so picky?

Please tell me that I am not the only one who thinks that the, so-called, upgrade to 4.4.2 is not a horrible debacle! So many apps are missing functionality or simply no longer work it is beyond comprehention. Is there any way to roll back to an earlier o/s? I am using a Droid Razr Maxx HD on Verizon.
