First gen Moto G with LTE now getting Android 5.1 in the U.S.

Moto G

Motorola unveiled an LTE variant of the 2013 Moto G early last year. The smartphone is already running Android 5.0 Lollipop, but is now said to be receiving Android 5.1 according to a post on the company’s site, bringing good news to the owners of the handset. The update is currently seeding only in the U.S., with no word on other markets as of now.

One of the impressive things about getting a Motorola product is that the company supports its devices even after a couple of years, something which most manufacturers are yet to learn. It also helps that Motorola utilizes a relatively stock version of Android for its devices, which is why Android updates are frequent.

The second gen Moto G has already started getting the Android 5.1 update in some regions, so it was only a matter of time before the first gen model received similar treatment. As for the changes on board, you shouldn’t find anything out of the ordinary with the device as the device is updating from Android 5.0 Lollipop. Android 5.1 is considered an incremental upgrade for those already on Lollipop.
