Motorola pushing out Android 4.4.4 on a variety of devices globally

Motorola pushing out Android 4.4.4 on a variety of devices globally
Motorola has posted a current look at the updates that are currently being pushed out to its handsets, in various regions. Because many of these devices have skipped Android 4.4.3 to go to Android 4.4.4, the update brings a new dialer (originally found in Android 4.4.3), and allows those taking a video to stop filming, and resume where they left off. Speaking of the camera, the update also offers enhanced image quality for still pictures. And with enhanced security for OpenSSL, you are less likely to be bothered by the Heartbleed vulnerability.

Android 4.4.4 is right now being pushed out for the Motorola Moto G in Brazil and India. The Motorola Moto E is receiving the same update in Brazil, France, Canada and the Asian Pacific market. In the U.S., Motorola says that it is in the process of updating the Motorola DROID Ultra to Android 4.4.4.

No mention was made of the Motorola DROID MAXX and Motorola DROID Mini, both of which are supposedly part of a soak test of Android 4.4.4 being sent out to members of the Motorola Feedback Network. Once the test is concluded, both models will be added to the list of the manufacturer's handsets that are receiving the Android 4.4.4 update.

HTC said 90 days after Google releases the source code and I'm pretty sure the Note 4 will come with Android L right out of the gate.

Android L will hopefully kill the traditional design of touchwiz and bring something new.

ICS pushed Samsung to come up with the Nature UX, I expect another revision with L. Maybe they'll announce it with the Note 4.

You will be surprised to see touchwiz-ed version of L

Unlikely if Note 4 comes at IFA as usual. Android L won't be out until October - November and Samsung needs to skin it on top too.

I agree with Feanor, Smurf. Android L would have to already be out right now for Samsung to properly test & integrate it with Touchwiz. From what I understand, L will not release until September at the very earliest. The Note 4 usually debuts in September. The only way it could have L is if they went stock on it. We both know that won't happen.

"Samy,Sony,Lg,Htc keep dreaming"

Android 4.4.4 update is already out for certain Sony and Google Nexus devices and as far as I know HTC soon will be updating if not done yet (HTC One M8 and M7 Google Play Edition already updated to Android 4.4.4).

So keep trolling...

Sony? Really? I already have 4.4.4 and I'm sure we will get 5.0 shortly after release.

Since I've updated to 4.4.4 my signal strength has been dreadful.... hopefully it's just a coincidence :-(

signal strength goes down when it warms up outside.especially for those in low signal areas. maybe that is the issue.

SONY/SAMSUNG/LG/HTC needs to learn from MOTOROLA if they want to keep their consumers happy. Wish i could of gotten the X PHONE but I couldn't wait any longer. may be when my Z1 dies I'll buy the X1

Verizon doesn't even sell the Droid Ultra in stores anymore. They've replaced it with a Maxx 16 GB. So there's no reason they would update the Ultra and hold out on the other Droids.
