Android 5.1 update now reaching second-gen Moto X

It’s finally time for the second-gen Motorola Moto X smartphone to start getting its Android 5.1 Lollipop update. Available in the form of an OTA download right now, this upgrade was last week also released for the first-gen model of the handset.

The second-gen Motorola Moto X was launched with Android 4.4.4 KitKat onboard, but was later updated to the 5.0 Lollipop version by its makers. The device receives a number of new tweaks through its Android 5.1 build. These include changes to the notification system, new drop-down menus for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi in quick settings and other additions.

The second-gen Moto X had arrived on the scene back in September last year with support for the Lenovo-owned company’s trademark customization options. It runs a 2.5GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 processor, while it carries onboard a 5.2-inch AMOLED panel with a 1080p full HD resolution.

Motorola has blessed it with a 13MP rear snapper that’s accompanied by a dual LED flash. On its front, the device holds a 2MP snapper for selfies and video calling. There’s 2GB worth of RAM present onboard this offering, apart from 16GB, 32GB or 64GB worth of storage space which cannot be expanded further due to the lack of a microSD card slot.
