Android 5.0 Lollipop is on everyone's lips now. Lately, Motorola is a company known for bringing fast updates to their devices and the phone maker rushed to announced their plans for the Android 5.0 Lollipop.

According to a recent Motorola blog post, the Android 5.0 Lollipop will be released for Moto X (1st and 2nd gen) and Moto G (1st and 2nd gen). The phone maker also confirmed they will be updating the Moto G LTE to the latest Android version.

As you may know, Motorola's latest smartphones bring an almost-stock Android experience with very few OEM customizations. Therefore, it shouldn't take Motorola to long to optimize Android 5.0 Lollipop for their devices. In fact, the same blog post also reveals that all Motorola smartphones launched in 2013 and later will get the new update. Besides the five aforementioned models, the affordable Moto E will also get the Android 5.0 update, along with Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini. Unfortunately, Motorola didn't reveal when the new update will arrive, but promised to return with more information in the near future.

Without a doubt, Android 5.0 Lollipop is the most major update Google's mobile platform has received since its debut in 2008. The new update brings a whole new design philosophy - Material Design - based on a colorful UI, more animations, and more realistic shadows, Lock Screen notifications, a redesigned Notifications Panel, a new Quick Settings area with new toggles, battery saver mode that promises 90 more minutes of battery life, dynamic status, document-centric multitasking, support for 64-bit processors, ART runtime instead of Dalvik, and more.

As you may know, once your device becomes eligible to get updated to Android 5.0 L, you should be able to see a system update message in the notifications panel. You know the drill: tap on it, choose "Download now," wait until the download is completed, and select "Install now." Your smartphone should reboot and install the new firmware. In case the system update notification fails to show up, you would also want to check for software updates under Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check now.

Are there any Moto X or Moto G owners readying this? What are your expectations for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update? Please let us know in the comments section below.

My xt1039 (while good) has un(loaded?) 15 launchers. I'm back to wasting time searching for apps for want of simple folders. If lollipop doesn't resolve it, I;m switching phones (and brands...).

Moto G (2013) user. I'm really looking forward to the ART runtime performance benefits. The Moto G is already a capable device for a lot of the resource hungry APPS out today but if I'm able to get any type of performance increase, I'm in. I also love the new interface. Really hopping for a true uniform look across all my APPS.

I'm dying to buy a new Moto X and customize it. I want to wait till Motorola is shipping phones w/ 5.0 L preloaded; anyone have any idea when that could be? Also, does anyone think they will upgrade the processor to Snapdragon 805 anytime soon?

Next year's X will probably have the 805 or whatever the SoC du jour is when development gets finalized (Summer maybe?)
