Motorola Droid smartphones will directly jump to Android 4.4.4

Motorola Droid - Android 4.4.4

The trio of the Motorola Droid smartphones are still awaiting the Android 4.4.3 update. However, with the announcement of Android 4.4.4 just a day ago, Motorola has now decided to cancel those plans and start working on this update instead. This will mean that the Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and the Droid Mini will jump directly to Android 4.4.4 from 4.4, which is a good move by the company. However, a company representative suggested that it could take 3-5 weeks to finish this process, which is quite a long time. But on the bright side, users will have the latest version of Android before many other OEM based smartphones.

We’re expecting the likes of the Moto X and the Moto G to get an update sooner as they run relatively stock versions of Android. And part of the reason for the delay in the rollout is the fact that it is controlled by Verizon, which is known for taking its own time as far as updates are concerned.

The reason behind jumping directly to Android 4.4.4 is to fix the vulnerabilities spotted by OpenSSL which haven’t been patched with Android 4.4.3. So it’s a logical move by Motorola and we hope the devices get the update by the end of July.
