U.S. Cellular Moto X Getting Android 4.4 KitKat Update Tomorrow


According to a Motorola insider, U.S. Cellular is preparing to finally push the much-anticipated Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade to its carrier-branded version of the Moto X tomorrow, via the stock Android over-the-air update service. In addition to KitKat, this upgrade also brings several improvements to the preloaded camera application and enhancements for the Touchless Control service.

The Moto X launched back in August, 2013, and packs a gorgeous 4.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280, a snappy 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal storage, a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter and a disappointing 2,200 mAh battery.
