A few days back, David Schuster of Motorola took to Google+ to inform that the soak tests on the Moto X first generation model were smooth. This tipped that the original Moto X will be receiving the Android 5.1 Lollipop update soon.
The company is done with all the soak tests since the past week and Android 5.1 Lollipop update to the original Moto X smartphone is officially out for the retail devices in U.S. and Brazil and those on Rogers in Canada. The carrier specific Moto X (Gen 1) in U.S. will take a bit longer to receive the update while the unlocked units will receive it right away.
The Android 5.1 Lollipop update comes with several bug fixes, performance enhancements and notable changes. After receiving this update on your original Moto X smartphone, you can manage your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections right from the quick settings on your device.
You can also enjoy other enhancements in the display pinning functionality and system volume control among others.
Schuster let out that the Android 5.1 soak tests for the first and second generation Moto X smartphones have started rolling out in other countries including Italy, Hong Kong and Australia among the rest. The Moto X users in these regions will receive the update in the coming week.
In the meantime, you can check out the video below to know the possible changes that will be brought in by the update.
