Motorola Confirms Android L Will Be Available for Moto X and Moto G

We reported late last month, Motorola confirmed the next version of Android, currently called L, will be arriving on Moto X and Moto G smartphones sometime in the fall.

However, what appeared to be an obvious confirmation from the US-based handset maker turned out to be just a speculation from an unofficial Facebook page, according to Motorola. Here is the company’s official statement regarding the previous rumors: "Unfortunately, we have found that a Facebook profile under the name ‘Motorola Germany’ with the following URL facebook.com/MotoDACH/ was created. We would like to point out that this is not an official Motorola site and expressly distance ourselves from said content. All relevant information about Motorola can be found only here on this page.”

Even though Motorola denied the confirmation of the Android L for Moto X and Moto G, it’s almost certain that the company will offer the update by the end of the year if nothing wrong happens. The assumption seems to be backed by the latest news on the presumably Android L update for the Moto X and Moto G, which confirms it for later this year. The folks over at AndroidOrigin have been recently tipped on the upcoming availability of Android L for Moto X and Moto G, which seems to have been confirmed by the company’s technical support reps. Although it’s not the most reliable source for this kind of information, it’s the first time that a Motorola official is pretty clear on the release of the highly anticipated Android L upgrade for both smartphones.

While replying to one of its customers, a Motorola technical support rep confirmed Android L would be released for Moto X and Moto G “once it is available.” This means that Motorola may offer the next major Android upgrade to Moto X and Moto G, as early as this fall. Google is likely to release Android L in October, but a more accurate timeframe is likely to be announced in the coming months. Moto E owners will probably be disappointed to hear Motorola did not confirm Android L will be released for this particular smartphone as well. According to the same Motorola technical support rep, the company does “not have any information as of today” in regard with Android L for Moto E. This means that Motorola is still assessing the possibility of Moto E getting this update as well, but a decision has yet to be made.
