Verizon Test Engineer claims Android 5.1 Lollipop is coming to Droid Turbo in mid-June


The Motorola DROID Turbo is infamously one of the only current Motorola phones not on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Motorola previously confirmed that the device would leapfrog the base Lollipop build and go straight to the more stable 5.1.

But when? We’re still not exactly sure, but one reputable Verizon test engineer claims to have the details. He confirmed on Google+ (the post has since been deleted, but you can read the full post and conversation here) that the update is scheduled for a mid-June release. That isn’t a tone of time, but even if we assume “Mid-June” means “June 15th” that’s still 25 days, which is enough to make those who have been missing out on Lollipop all this time a bit antsy (except maybe Chris).

Furthermore, the tech noted that Verizon’s delays with firmware upgrades are typically thanks to their stringent testing policies to make sure nothing is impacted on the network side, such as Advanced HD Voice Calling over LTE.

So there you have it — the upgrade is basically ready, but Verizon is holding it up. That’s their prerogative, though, so all we can say is to sit tight and hope that the mid-June window holds up.
