Motorola Says The Moto E 2015 Is Getting Marshmallow After All, Just Not In The USA

When Marshmallow was first released, Motorola released a list of devices that it deemed Marshmallow-worthy. Noticeably absent from that list was the Moto E 2015 (2nd gen), despite the company promising timely updates in its marketing of the device 219 days earlier. That caused a legitimate online uproar from Moto E users who weren't expecting to be left behind so abruptly and cold-bloodedly. So what's the company to do to silence the cries of scorned loyal users? Do an about-face and fix the issue, that's what. Except it still didn't manage to fully solve the problem for everyone.

Motorola has sneakily updated the list of devices to receive Marshmallow on its site and added 4 new devices:

  • Moto X Force
  • DROID Turbo 2
  • DROID Maxx 2
  • 2015 Moto E with 4G LTE in Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia excluding China (2nd Gen)

The Moto E is the most interesting addition to that list.

Motorola Announces The Moto X Force, Coming To Various International Markets Starting In November

Motorola has officially announced the Moto X Force, the international version of the DROID Turbo 2 that became available from Verizon Wireless earlier today. You might remember it by its codename, Bounce.

The company didn't say much in the announcement. Actually, it didn't say anything. We're treated to a 'coming soon' page on Motorola's UK site (pictured above) and this YouTube video highlighting the phone's Moto ShatterShield display. Watch it fall. See how much better it sticks the landing than those other guys.

Oh, underneath that is a note: the phone is coming to Africa, the Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America starting in November.

Report: Verizon's DROID Turbo 2 Will Be Customizable With Moto Maker, Specs And Release Date Mentioned

We've already heard a good bit about the DROID Turbo 2, the latest Motorola phone customized for Verizon's US exclusive line. We've even been given a peek at the device, which seems to be very similar to the latest iterations of the Moto X series. New details have been reported by Phandroid, and while we can't confirm them, they seem like natural extensions of Motorola's current market direction. Notably, the DROID Turbo 2 will reportedly get at least some of the same Moto Maker customization options that have been slowly expanding from the Moto X to other devices.

The exact nature of the Moto Maker customizations aren't mentioned, though if the design is very similar to the Moto X you can probably expect a lot of the same choices.
