And the circle is now (almost) complete, as US Cellular’s variant of the Motorola Moto X is apparently to be spoiled with a chocolaty treat any second now. That’s right, according to trusted sources on the inside, the nation’s fifth biggest wireless carrier is gearing up for an Android 4.4 KitKat rollout, with the first OTAs bound to go out by the end of the day.
USC therefore follows AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon’s suit, the turnaround time being almost equally as impressive, at one month and change. But Sprint is still keeping its users on their toes, so Moto isn’t fully sure it’ll be able to hold its promise and bring all X versions to the future of Android by the end of the year.
The changelog on US Cellular should look pretty much the same as on the other three carriers, “Project Svelte” performance enhancements and a slightly overhauled user interface leading the pack in specific tweaks.
The 4.4 update is to also bring a handful of fresh native apps, wipe out some old ones and ensure smooth running on systems with as little as 512 MB RAM. The X has 2 gigs, so laggines was never an issue, albeit USC pricing may well be, at $49.99 with two-year contracts. Good thing there’s that delayed Cyber Monday promo going on, eh?
