Motorola DROID Turbo Android update: latest news

The Motorola DROID Turbo is the Verizon-exclusive 2014 Motorola flagship. It has an unmistakable design, impressive battery life (thanks to a 3,900 mAh cell) and a QHD display, and is one of the more powerful Motorola phones released last year. When will it be upgraded to Android Marshmallow? Find out all the latest Motorola DROID Turbo Android update news here.

Motorola has confirmed that the DROID Turbo will receive Android Marshmallow and said that it will “work fast” to upgrade its devices to Android 6.0, but that they won’t ship until Motorola knows they are ready.

A report from Neurogadget claims that Motorola has completed the Android 6.0 software update for the DROID Turbo and is waiting on approval from Verizon before it is rolled out, but provides no source for this information. If this is accurate, Verizon should start pushing the software out OTA, once approval is granted.

The DROID Turbo arrived with Android 4.4 KitKat but was upgraded to Android 5.1 Lollipop on July 1, a number of months after the Lollipop source code was released (November 2014). If the Marshmallow update arrives to the DROID Turbo before 2016 it will show a big improvement from Motorola.

Are you excited to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow on your DROID Turbo? Let us know in the comments.

    Well it's the end of this month coming to a new year and still haven't seen no update to the droid Turbo...

  • Knowing how Verizon drags their feet on any update it will most likely be February or March before we see Marshmallow. Turbo was the very last to receive that last update.

    • I very much hope you're wrong but I very much fear you're right. After the Lollipop fiasco we Turbo owners deserve a break this time around.

      I really hope you guys don't update, the bootloader just got unlocked. Cyanogen is the way to go on this phone. Cancel any update!

      • I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about here. I am not a techy

        That is unfortunate, you are missing out on the full potential of this amazing phone. Check out Xda forums, Droid turbo.

        I had given up on being able to ever get cyanogenmod on the turbo. This is a game changer for sure. I've been running marshmallow on my Nexus 7 for awhile and it's OK but I would rather root the Turbo

    • "Turbo was the very last to receive that last update" On the bright side its getting the update. DROID Ultra/Maxx/Mini owners like myself were originally supposed to get the Lollipop update after the Turbo and never did. At least I'm getting a new phone in less than three months.

      But still, this is a perfect example of how much Verizon drags the update back. The Turbo was supposed to get the Lollipop update before the end of 2014, with the previous year's DROIDs getting the update after that.
