Android 6.0 Marshmallow certified for the Moto X (2014)

Moto X

With #Android 6.0 official now, manufacturers are expected to start rolling out the update to their devices soon. While #HTC has already pledged to release an Android 6.0 powered device by mid-October and even sent out a schedule of the update rollout for its older devices, other companies are yet to follow suit. But #Motorola has now announced that its 2014 Moto X has already received Android 6.0 certification, which means that an update could be on the horizon.

This makes sense given that Motorola smartphones have a somewhat stock version of Android underneath, making it easier for the company to simply pick up the elements of vanilla Android as offered by Google. However, the company has to include some device specific applications like Moto Voice, Moto Display etc, which is perhaps the only thing that comes in the way of a quick rollout.

Of course, unlocked and Developer Edition models of the handset will be the first to get the update, which means that carrier versions will take slightly longer to receive the Android 6.0 upgrade.
