American giant Google hasn't given any official confirmation on Nexus 5's Android Lollipop update. Tech experts were expecting the device to stand on the front of the row for getting the latest Android OS update.
Meanwhile, the US based smartphone manufacturer Motorola Mobile has nominated Moto X's name to receive the official update from Google. Following this, Google Nexus 4 will receive the update through OTA (Over the Air).
The MOTO X 'Pure Edition' users are the first batch of lucky customers to get the update. The smartphone comes pre-unlocked, giving more openness to the upgrade. Motorola rolled out the first batch of update to the customers, who signed "Soak Test" program. Following this, the American company has also confirmed the update availability for the rest of the customers.
Meanwhile, the Original Equipment Manufacturer has also released the official update for their Moto G series line up of smartphones as well. Motorola is known for featuring stock Android ROM's on their devices for better and faster Google integration.
Significantly, Google Nexus devices always remained on top of the queue for receiving Google OS update, hence it was expected that Nexus 5 would be the first smartphone to receive the Lollipop update, but an unknown battery bug is delaying the release, though several users think it is a slay trick by the search engine giant to boost their latest flagship Nexus 6 devices sale, which will be up for sale from 12 November 2014.
