Seems like Motorola is not leaving any stone unturned to equip its smartphones with latest OS versions. In a new move, the company has started rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update to the Moto E (2nd Gen) LTE. Moreover, some Moto E (XT1527) users in the United States are reportedly receiving the 5.1 OTA update.
The 5.1 update comes as build version 23.11.15 and it will take about 258.8MB of space on the device. It brings along bug-fixes, UI-enhancements, factory-reset protection, heads-up notifications, smartphone protection, lock screen, ART run-time performance improvements, and better usability. Here is the change log for the Android 5.1 update for the Moto G (2nd Gen) LTE.
If you have not received the update notification yet, then you got to check for it manually. Simply go to the Settings > about phone > system updates > select “Yes, I’m in”. As soon as the software finishes downloading, tap on the “Install now” option. After completing all the pre-requisites, the device will re-start automatically. Motorola might be rolling out the update in phases, so it might take more time to hit your device if you have not received it already.
Motorola unveiled the Moto E (2nd Gen) LTE in February this year and it reached Indian shores last month for Rs 7,999
