It looks like there’s an advantage to being owned by Google after all. Motorola may have claimed the search giant wasn’t giving it any special treatment, but the company updated its software support site today, adding six new smartphones to the list of devices getting the Android 4.4 KitKat update.
Initially, the Moto X and the three newest DROIDs were the only devices recognized to receive KitKat, but now Motorola has revealed that even more of its devices will get the new operating system. The DROID RAZR M (both the branded and developers edition), the RAZR HD and the RAZR MAXX HD on Verizon will all graduate to Android 4.4. AT&T’s Atrix HD and U.S. Cellular’s Electrify M will also get the same software update.
There’s no word on when the update for each device will arrive, but Motorola clearly has an edge over its competition when it comes to Android 4.4. The Verizon Moto X became the first device not running stock Android to get the KitKat update earlier today. Now the smartphone maker is promising that 10 different Motorola phones will all make the jump, a privilege normally reserved only for the latest batch of flagship devices.
