Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile customers are already enjoying the benefits of Android 4.4 KitKat on their Moto X smartphone, but there are still a couple of carriers left to roll out the update. US Cellular being one of them has now commenced the delivery process by seeding the new firmware over the air.
Punit Soni, VP, Product Management at Motorola Mobility, announced the release of the update for the Moto X through his Google+ account. The post notes that KitKat is being tested with US Cellular users and roll out will commence in phases. According to the company’s support page, the new firmware will introduce restyled status and navigation bars, a full-screen mode, touch to focus in the Camera app and new photo editing options amongst others.
Amongst the major carriers in the US, Sprint is yet to release Android 4.4 KitKat for its version of the Moto X smartphone. The good news here is that the provider has begun a soak test for an upcoming software update, notes PhoneArena. This means that few lucky customers will get access to the latest platform before others. The main purpose of this test is to determine stability and that everything is functioning as it should. The final roll out should commence very soon.
