Motorola customer support confirms Moto X and Moto G are on the line for Android L update

Motorola customer support confirms Moto X and Moto G are on the line for Android L update
After a bogus message claiming that Motorola’s Moto X and Moto G will get the Android L update from what turned out to be a fake Motorola Germany account, now we’re hearing the same confirmation, but this time from a seemingly more legitimate source - an official customer representative.

Customer support is not exactly our idea of an official confirmation, though, so we’d still remain cautious about this and treat it as a rumor rather than a fact. With this in mind, you can see right below how ‘Kristina’, a Motorola custom rep, confirms that two of the company’s best sellers, the Moto X and Moto G will be updated to Android L.

When asked about Motorola’s affordable phone, the Moto E, though, the rep is not sure whether it’d get the upcoming new version of Google’s mobile operating system.

It only sounds logical that Motorola will update its flagship offering, the Moto X, but we’re happy to hear that the mid-range Moto G is also allegedly getting the ‘L’ treatment.

There are no dates mentioned in the conversation, but if we had to bet on something, we’d say that the L update should start hitting flagships like the Moto X around the end of 2014.

Doesn't surprise me. It also doesn't surprise me that there's no date on Motorola's update plans for the two phones, considering that there's no release date on Android L to begin with.

The biggest reason for me to go for nexus or motorola is default UI experience and with newer L UI it's gonna bang other manufacturers a$$es. The most ugly and bloated UI nowdays is touchwiz #Personal Opinion. 1. Android Default UI 2. Sense 3. Sony

I would take touchwiz over xperia UI. I would compromise the ugliness and bloated over Sony's half baked, buggy UI. Also Touchwiz's functionality.... Anyway stock android along with sense 6 are my favorites. Not sure about android L though, kinda love/hate relationship with it. I still find Holo better than material design.

You're going you love L is my guess, its so smooth and fluid like. You will forget about holo as I am myself I bet.

I tried it last week. Not of my tastes. I like the old one better. I like the few new design elements but in other things holo wins for me.

sony's ui is as close as stock UI and just for the information I'll tell u, apps in sony phones like movies, album and so others get continuous updates now and then for the ultimate user experience and satisafaction. btw barbie gonna love samsung colorful rainbowish touchwiz ui looks like crayon box to me.

yeah I don't know why the Galaxy s line is so popular with touchwiz when the moto x and Nexus 5 are so much cheaper and have better software and the design of the moto x is awesome.

Today I will get a brand new Moto X to replace the one I cracked the screen on for free(since I used the Moto maker). I like Motorola. :)

Motomaker kicks ass. I'm really happy that it's not going away, even though it won't be manufactured in the US anymore.

I"m going to be honest... That chat exchange looks a little questionable. I have contacted Motorola Support about needing a replacement Moto X DE and their opening and closing lines are typically a little more wordy than just, how may I help you, and Thanks from Motorola!. Not saying this is a hoax or anything, but it's just a little fishy. In my opinion.

Can I get 4.4.3 first please.

NO YOU MAY NOT!! 4.4.3 had a serious vulnerability in it and thats why just a couple of weeks after the Nexus devices got 4.4.3 they were updated to 4.4.4. So no you should not see 4.4.3 on Moto devices.

Will Moto G Dual Sim 16 GB get 4.4.4? Pls enlighten me.
