Android 5.0 Lollipop Rollout Begins for Limited Moto E, Moto Maxx Users
Motorola, as promised, has started rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the budget Moto E and high-end Moto Maxx smartphones. The company announced the rollout on Twitter.

Notably, the Android 5.0 Lollipop update is rolling out to limited Moto E and Moto Maxx users who are under the company's soak test. The Lenovo-owned company confirmed soak test for the Moto Maxx in Brazil and Mexico had begun, as well as the soak test for the Moto E in Brazil and India.

"Some sweet news for Moto Maxx and Moto E today: As we promised, we are continuing to expand Android 5.0, Lollipop to two more devices! We have begun rolling out Lollipop for Moto Maxx with soak testing in Brazil and Mexico and for Moto E in Brazil and India," Motorola said in a blog post.

Further, the company revealed the Android Lollipop update will be first rolling out to unlocked Moto E and Moto Maxx smartphones bought at retail.


"Lollipop will first come to Moto Maxx and Moto E smartphones bought at retail. As we normally do, we're starting by rolling out the upgrade to smaller test groups, and if the results are strong, we will expand the software to more phones," it added.

The company has not announced a time-frame for the wider rollout of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Moto E and Moto Maxx users. Users however will either receive a notification for the OTA update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, or they can also check manually for the update by visiting Settings>About phone>System updates. Motorola has also recommended Moto E users to prepare for Android 5.0 Lollipop update by upgrading to the latest version of Motorola Update Services from Google Play.

To refresh, Motorola has rolled out Android 5.0 Lollipop updates to most of its recent devices, including the Moto G (Gen 1), Moto G (Gen 2), and Moto X (Gen 2).

The company recently also confirmed it has been working on the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the first-generation Moto X; though it has been struggling with hardware issue as the handset is backed by the dated dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.
