Verizon and Motorola shocked us all back in November when the Verizon Moto X became the first non-Nexus device to receive Android 4.4 KitKat. But what about Motorola’s other devices on America’s largest mobile carrier? Naturally, many were quick to wonder if/when the 2012 Droid family (Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR M) would receive the official KitKat goods.
Now, we’ve gotten official word that the update is not only coming, but that it will hit consumer devices very soon. This news comes directly from David Schuster, Senior Director of Software Product Management for Motorola. As stated on David Schuster’s Google+:
A number of people have been asking me about that status of the KitKat upgrade for the 2012 DROID family (HD and M). I am happy to report that we have made great progress and it should only be a few more weeks until you guys can enjoy it. So stay tuned…..
Although we don’t have an update yet, it’s great to hear from an official source that KitKat is coming very soon. Keep checking back here on the XDA Portal, as well as the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR M forums to get in on the update as soon as it’s live.
