The Moto Turbo (XT1225) was released in 2015 and while a good number of Motorola phones released the same year have been receiving the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, those using this handset have not been able to see such an update come their way.
Also known as the Moto Maxx, the Moto Turbo is a flagship phone that should have already received the Marshmallow update by now, especially since the OS has been here for more than 8 months. In case you are lost somewhere, the Moto Turbo and Moto Maxx are what the Moto Droid Turbo is known as in India. In fact, the phone has the same specs as what was launched in the U.S. These include a 5.2-inch QHD AMOLED display screen with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. Under the hood, the handset is powered by a decent Snapdragon 805 SoC that is paired with a RAM of 3GB and onboard storage of 64GB. The back of the phone has a monstrous 21MP sensor while the battery unit is a similarly huge 3900mAh capacity, which should be enough to keep you going through the entire day.
The Moto Turbo first launched in the U.S. as the Droid Turbo and back then, it was powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. In the U.S., this handset is locked to Verizon Wireless. As mentioned earlier, some Moto handsets released last year have already been updated with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, most notably the Moto G3. However, the Moto Turbo had been denied some love, something that is no longer the same as at the time of this writing.
If you live in India and use the Moto Turbo, the Marshmallow OTA notification should already have hit your device. But as usual with OTA updates, they will not reach all devices at the same time. This means that some units may delay receiving the Marshmallow update while others are already receiving the same. Those on Moto Turbo handsets can now enjoy Marshmallow-exclusive features such as Google Now on Tap, enhanced control over apps permissions, Doze mode, and many other enhancements.
