While not officially confirmed by the company yet, it looks like Motorola's first-gen Moto X smartphone will get a solid firmware update next week. The Android 5.1 Lollipop update for 2013 Moto X is currently being tested and, if everything goes smoothly, US-based owners of the handset should receive it later this month, although deployment via carrier channels may take a bit longer.

Yesterday, Motorola employee David Schuster revealed the following in a post on Google+ (after mentioning that full soak testing in France and Germany retail has started this week) - "In addition, we have addressed an issue we found in a previous soak test and should start full soak testing in the US and Brazil for retail later this week. If all goes well, full deployment can happen the following week."

The first-gen Moto X launched in late August 2013 loaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but its specs are still good for a mid-range device - 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC, 4.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 2 GB RAM, up to 64 GB internal storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
