Verizon Rolling Out OTA Update For Carrier-Branded Moto X
Verizon together with Motorola is in the process of rolling out the rather much-anticipated over-the-air (OTA) update for its carrier-branded version of the Moto X. The upgrade is a duplicate of what we’ve already seen AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular roll out to their devices, bringing a truckload of stability improvements, camera enhancements and bug fixes.
The Moto X was released back in August 2013, and sports a gorgeous 4.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280, a beefy 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32Gb of internal storage, a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera and a measly 2,200 mAh battery.
The full changelog for the build 139.15.1 update can be seen below:
- Camera – Improved Photo Quality Improved capture of natural light (auto-white balance) and color accuracy for more precise exposure in outdoor and backlit scenes
- Camera – Improved Focus Faster touch to focus time and reduced unnecessary refocusing in low light conditions and scenes with continuous motion
- Camera – Faster Switching Shortened the time it takes to switch between rear and front-facing cameras, as well as transition between the viewfinder and the Gallery app
- Enhanced Touchless Control — Increased accuracy and responsiveness when using Touchless Control, and added easier training of the “OK Google Now” trigger
- Improved Motorola Migrate Experience — Improved transfer of content from an old Android phone to a new Motorola phone
- Google Drive – 50GB Promotion — Added a promotion expiration date – customers have 30 days from phone activation or installation of this update to redeem the 50GB offer
- Calling – Improved Voice Quality Fixed an issue that could sometimes result in choppy audio being heard by the person you’re talking with on your Moto X
- Moto Care – Lost Device Finder Fixed an issue that could sometimes prevent a lost phone from reporting its location to the Moto Care Lost Device Finder service
- Motorola Assist – Driving Detection Fixed an issue that could sometimes cause the phone to read out text messages and announce calls when not in Drive mode
