The Motorola Droid Turbo owners can finally relax as the Android 5.1 Lollipop update has been confirmed for their handsets. Jose Arturo, Verizon's device test engineer, added a Google+ post stating that the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for Droid Turbo will be seeded in mid-June. Subsequently, he was admonished for letting out the information and hence, he has now removed the Google+ post.

Android 5.1 Lollipop Update For Motorola Droid Turbo

According to Phone Arena, the Motorola Droid Turbo will reportedly be updated from Android 4.4 KitKat to Android 5.1 Lollipop directly in June. This means, the primary version Android 5.0 will be skipped altogether. Based on Arturo’s Google+ post, the delay in updating the Droid Turbo to the latest Android version is because of Verizon's nationwide HD Voice service. To be specific, Verizon was reportedly wary of the software update in order to make sure it does not affect the voice quality negatively.
