Motorola Moto X 5

Android 4.4 arriva prima su Moto X che su Nexus 4!

Nicola Ligas

Brava Motorola, un po’ meno Google, anche se il dualismo e la contraddizione in questa frase sono evidenti. Fatto sta che mentre il Nexus 4 ancora aspetta l’OTA di Android 4.4, il Moto X a marchio Verizon già si veste dei colori di KitKat, con buona pace del googlefonino. Del resto c’erano già state delle avvisaglie nei giorni scorsi, ma oggi è stata sciolta ogni riserva, e l’update è già disponibile.

Non essendoci molti utenti di Moto X in ascolto, non ci dilungheremo oltre, ma vi lasciamo comunque il changelog completo dell’aggiornamento:

KitKat includes enhancements such as restyled status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, color emoji support, improved closed captioning support, stronger security, smarter power use, and more tools and capabilities for better app development.
  • Phone dialer: Improved the phone app with the ability to look up contacts directly from the dial pad, see and tap frequent contacts, and search your corporate directory easily.
  • Camera – Focus and exposure: Enhanced the “touch to focus” option with a new circular, on screen control that can be dragged by your finger around the viewfinder to adjust a photo’s focus and exposure.
  • Gallery – Photo editing: Added new photo editing options to the Gallery app including new filter effects, draw on your photos, advanced cropping, and adjustments to color, exposure, contrast and more.

  • Touchless Control – “Find my phone”: Added a new “Find my phone” command to Touchless Control. Just say “OK, Google Now-find my phone” and your Moto X will ring loudly to let you know where it’s hiding when you’ve misplaced it nearby.
