Well there you have it. The first non Nexus phone to get the KitKat update is the Moto X and it just so happens to be the Verizon version. Motorola just announced that the update will start rolling today. Think about this for a moment….The Moto X is receiving the latest and greatest Android before the Nexus 4 (at least OTA). In fact, I have two Nexus 7 devices that have yet to receive the official update. Kudos to Motorola and their team for getting this done so fast while other manufacturers like Samsung are pushing 4.3 to their devices.
This update will roll out in phases, so be patient because it could take a week or two till everyone gets it. Motorola didn’t offer any info for other carrier versions, but did say they will “have more KitKat for Moto X news to share on other carriers and countries very soon.” Hit the break for the changelog directly from Motorola.
