At Motorola’s global launch of the Moto G in November users were told the upgrade would arrive in January, with the device having initially arrived with Android 4.3 installed. However, it seems that software engineers at the Google-owned firm have been working overtime, rolling the new OS out early.
KitKat may not be a massive overhaul of the Android platform, but it does bring in a refined user experience and improvements to performance throughout. What’s also impressive is that one of the least expensive Android smartphones available will now be running the most up-to-date version of the platform, while many others lag behind.
As always, the exact time that the update will arrive on particular handsets depends on the network it is connected to, but with the international roll out having already begun any Moto G owner shouldn’t have to wait too long.
