Some of Verizon's Motorola Moto X users are studying for an upcoming soak test
Verizon recently updated the Motorola DROID MAXX, Motorola DROID Ultra and the Motorola DROID Mini to Android 4.4.4. Now, Motorola is believed to be getting ready to perform a soak test for Verizon's Motorola Moto X. Since the trio of DROID handsets listed above each received Android 4.4.4, it is possible that is what the Moto X will also be updated to. On the other hand, the T-Mobile and Sprint versions of the Moto X were each updated to Android 4.4.3, so we will need some further clarification from Big Red.

So far, Verizon has not issued a changelist. We do have a rough idea of what to expect, based on the DROID updates. For example, you should expect a new dialer and some improvements to the camera. And of course, there are the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements.

With the soak test, a limited number of Motorola Moto X users who are members of the Motorola Feedback Network, will receive the update. Motorola likes to run the soak test because it gives them a chance to test an update before it reaches a large number of handsets. This way, if there is a problem, fewer phones are affected, which makes it easier for Motorola to find the issue and fix it.

Once the soak test is completed, all of Verizon's Motorola Moto X units will receive either Android 4.4.3 or Android 4.4.4.
