Well this is a pleasant surprise. Motorola on Friday began rolling out Android 5.0 soak test to its Moto X (2014) Pure Edition, providing owners with the sweet, sweet taste of Lollipop.

The screenshot below spells it out, as do the release notes at the source link. Owners of the new Moto X will get a fresh new take on Android, with plenty of Material Design, new lock screen notifications, security features, and much, much more. There’s a lot to like about Google’s new Lollipop update, so there’s no real reason you shouldn’t download this immediately.

We tried pulling down the update here on our Moto X unit (granted, it’s on AT&T), but no updates to speak of. However, some people are already receiving it, which means it’s only a matter of days (or hours) until you have Android 5.0 up and running—and this is even before people have gotten their hands on the Nexus 6. Motorola works fast, and I suppose that’s the benefit of offering a vanilla Android device.

The update says it requires approximately 200-400MB of storage before it can upgrade and optimize applications. Better start clearing up your device now so you’re good and ready.
