Motorola Droid Turbo will be updated to Android 5.1 Lollipop

Motorola Droid Turbo will be updated to Android 5.1 Lollipop
Motorola already updated some of its smartphones to Android Lollipop, but not the Droid Turbo (which is exclusively available via Verizon Wireless). The good news is that the Turbo will be updated directly to Android 5.1 Lollipop, skipping all 5.0 updates. The info comes from Luciano Carvalho, a software engineer at Motorola, who recently replied to a report saying that Motorola would release "bug-free" Lollipop updates for the Droid Turbo and other devices.

While Luciano Carvalho confirmed that the Turbo would get Android 5.1, he says that this won't necessarily be "bug-free", because it's "nearly impossible" not to have bugs with "a complex software running on a complex hardware, with thousands of different environment conditions and thousands of usage variations." The 5.1 update will bring native VoLTE support to the Droid Turbo, but it's not clear when Motorola and Verizon are planning to release it.

Verizon is currently selling the Droid Turbo for $149.99 on contract, or $549.99 off contract. As you'll find out by reading our Droid Turbo review, the handset is one of the best that Motorola launched lately.
