The wait is almost over for Moto G (2nd generation) users. Motorola has begun the soak-testing of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for both LTE and 3G-only models. The company is planning to release the updates for India and Brazil users.
The senior director of software product management David Schuster declared that the company is commencing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow soak test for Moto G (2nd Gen). The decision came after a few days from the post about the firmware?s release notes on the Motorola?s Mobility India support page.
“I’m pleased to announce that we are starting the soak test for Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade for the 2014 Moto G (2nd Gen) and 2014 Moto G with 4G LTE (2nd Gen) for Brazil and India retail channels devices,” said Schuster via Google+.
“We will monitor the soak for next week and with good results, proceed to full launch,” Schuster added.
It is expected that Motorola will roll out the firmware for Moto G (Gen 2) very soon as the company has recently released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates for Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto G (3rd gen) and Moto G Turbo Edition.
The Lenovo-owned Motorola intends to release the Android M updates for more than a dozen handsets, such as Moto X (2nd Gen), Moto X Pure Edition, Moto G (2nd Gen), Moto G (2nd Gen) 4G, Moto G (3rd Gen), Moto Maxx, Moto Turbo, DROID Turbo, Moto DROID Turbo 2, Maxx 2, Moto E (2015), Moto G Turbo, Moto X Play, Moto X Force, Moto X Style and Moto E (2nd Gen) 4G.
Back in 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola from Google, and recently, the company has declared that it will revamp the brand ?Hello Moto? to “Moto by Lenovo.”
At the sidelines of CES 2016, David Osterloh, Motorola?s chief operating officer revealed that the company is re-branding, and the Motorola brand will no longer be associated with the Moto devices, as reported by CNET.
