Motorola Moto G with Android L update leaks on video
posted by Victor H. / Oct 13, 2014, 8:27 AM
The Motorola Moto G started a little revolution in the affordable phone segment last year with its surprisingly affordable price. It was a device that took the specs of a typical mid-range Android smartphone, added a flavor of close to vanilla Android experience, and the price to bring commercial success to Motorola. One of the big promises of the Moto G launch was that it would get updated to newer versions of Android in a timely manner.
The Moto G might be one of the first affordable smartphones to get Android LUpdates of such affordable devices are rare, and usually they happen after flagship phones get updated, so users have to wait a long time to receive newer versions of the platform. This is not likely to be the case with the Moto G, as we are now seeing the first video showing Android L running on the handset.
The interesting part of the demonstration starts at around the 5:40 mark, where you can see the new lockscreen, apps, and refreshed look of Android L. Judging by this video, the Moto G has also managed to retain its zippy performance with Android L, which is great news. Take a look yourselves at how it runs right below.
- Display 4.5" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, Quad-core, 1200 MHz
- Storage 8 GB
- Battery 2070 mAh

I give it a week after L is released that it'll roll out. Kudos to Moto for this.

it's a theme. Given Moto's track record though, it shouldn't take more than a month.

Yes it most definitely is a theme. Shocking that Phonearena couldn't catch it. Notice the quick settings toggle was hit instead of the second pull down action that will be featured in L. Probably flashed a kernel beforehand to make it say Android is upgrading at boot.

The least phonearena's editors could do is make sure their articles have been confirmed, this article looks like a copy of GSMArena' word for word so I wouldnt be surprised if they didn't even watch the video. This is just an Android L theme for CM11, please update the article.

CM11 + CM11 Theme Android L (i am using it now) + bootanimation leaked trillion times before + Android L lockscreen "can be foind on play store i think" + some freaking kernel "to give smoothness and to make that scrern at start" = big fool that PA believed Lol Lol How the hell is this android L and the recents are still in the old way, as well as the quick settings get launched exactly like kitkat. Android L is supposed to let the quick settings launched by swiping down onec again from withtin the notification tray. I suggest you remove that video. It is hilarious :p :laugh:
