The DROID series are sold exclusively by Verizon in the US and the second generation Turbo is planned to receive the 6.0 Marshmallow update, as this flagship came pre-installed with 5.1.1 Lollipop, but now Motorola has started soak test and the update has reached a few users who reported that they’ve received the software version 24.14.10.
The Turbo 2 was released in October 2015 and it’s a modified version of the Moto X, featuring a smaller shatterproof screen of 5.4-inch, built from five layers of protection: 1. exterior protective lens, 2. interior lens, 3. a dual-touch layer, 4. the AMOLED display and 5. an aluminum backing; a more powerful processor (Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 octa core clocked at 2GHz, which is backed by an Adreno 430 GOU and 3GB of RAM); two variants of internal memories: 32Gb and 64GB, expandable up to 200GB and the cameras are identical to that of the Moto X 2015: 21 MP with f/2.0 optics, phase detection autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash on the rear side and 5 MP with f/2.0 optics and LED flash on the front side. The battery has a capacity of 3760mAh and on paper, it provides 48 hours of continuous talk time over 3G.
This phone, which is a Verizon exclusive, will receive the 6.0 Marshmallow update soon, as the soak test (closed alpha) has begun and the users who are active on Motorola’s support forum have announced that they’ve received the software version 24.14.10. The installation file has 1.1GB in size and the Android security patch is known under the name of “March 1st”. Motorola is sticking to clean software which is close to stock Android, but the update has UI tweaks, besides the usual bug fixes.
The Turbo 2 users should get the Marshmallow build sometime in March or at the beginning of April, if there will be no major problems during the soak test.
