If you’ve been hoping that your Motorola Droid device (either the Ultra, Maxx or Mini) would get an OS update, you’d be right. Motorola Droid devices will get Android 4.4.3, the newly released OS made available by Google.
Motorola Droid Devices will Get Android KitKat 4.4.3:
Made available only days ago by Google for all Nexus and Google Play Store Edition devices, Android KitKat 4.4.3 is making its way to all of Motorola’s Droid family. Although no date has been set yet, Motorola users should be comforted to know that the Moto X, Moto G and Moto E will all be updated this week, so the Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini shouldn’t be too far behind.
This update is said to bring an improved dialer, with new interface and colours, as well as security, framework and stability fixes.
But why did Motorola Droid devices get Android KitKat 4.4.3 and not 4.4.2? The answer comes from Motorola’s Senior Director of Product management David Schuster:
We had a decision to make with respect to rolling out KitKat 4.4.2 vs. waiting for KitKat 4.4.3, which we knew, was coming out shortly. We were concerned that if we used KitKat 4.4.2 it could be months before we were given the opportunity to get you KitKat 4.4.3. Consequently, we made the decision to wait for KitKat 4.4.3 as the base for our next update to the 2013 DROID family. We are working to get this update to you shortly, as it gets closer I will let you guys know. Thanks for your patience
As soon as we know when the Motorola Droid devices will get the Android KitKat 4.4.3, we’ll be sure to let you know. Otherwise, you can let us know on the “Tip Us” page. In the meant time, users of the Moto G, Moto X and Moto E should be able to download the update now.
