The Verizon Droid Turbo has been waiting for its Android Lollipop update forever, and there’s still no good news for its owners as it has been delayed further. Some respite can be found by owners in the fact that Motorola itself has gone on to clarify that the software is in the testing process and that ‘things are looking good’ for it.
However, the company has stopped short of providing any specific time frame for the release. Earlier this week, we had received word that June 10 will be date on which the Lollipop update for the Droid Turbo will finally make its way out, but that didn’t stand true, just like many other prior rumors about its release date.
This Motorola-made handset was launched by Verizon late last year with Android 4.4 KitKat onboard. Once the Lollipop party was in full swing, its makers revealed that instead of the 5.0 version of the software, the phone will directly be granted the 5.1 edition. While this pleased its owners, little did they know that it’d take this long for the update to arrive.
And all these delays are arising despite the fact that Droid Turbo runs a near-stock version of Android. A few goodies from Motorola and some bloatware from Verizon aside, the base software hasn’t been toyed around with.
A neat look at the specs of the Droid Turbo:
– Display: 5.2-inch, QHD 1440 x 2560 pixels (565ppi)
– OS: Android 4.4 KitKat (Upgradable to Android 5.1 Lollipop)
– Processor: 2.7GHz quad core Snapdragon 805

– Camera: 2MP front, 21MP rear
– Dimensions: 143.5 x 73.3 x 7.8mm
