Verizon confirmed today that the newly announced DROID Turbo will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop, though the carrier couldn’t offer a more concrete timeline. Last year’s DROID Maxx and DROID Mini are also guaranteed to get Lollipop eventually, Verizon said.
The carrier said it will get to work on an upgrade as soon as Google releases Android 5.0. The Lollipop release date is allegedly set for November 3, so hopefully it won’t be long before we have a better of sense of when the software update is coming. Of course it could still be months before it hits, especially since Verizon has three phones to work with and will need to approve each update for operation on its network.
The carrier also says it still plans to sell the Maxx and Mini as part of the DROID lineup, though the Ultra is being phased out in favor of the DROID Turbo. You’ll be able to pick up the smallest DROID for $0 on-contract, while the DROID Maxx will sell for $49 on-contract. Neither offers the latest specs, though the promise of a Lollipop upgrade is still nice.
We’ll let you know as soon as Verizon has more concrete plans for pushing out Android 5.0 Lollipop. In the meantime head back to our homepage for even more on the DROID Turbo.
