Motorola Users: Android 14 Update Roadmap Unveiled

Motorola Edge (2023)

Motorola has recently announced its comprehensive Android 14 update roadmap for various smartphone models, covering the razr, edge, and g series. So, notably absent from this update plan is the moto e series, as the company has not committed to providing Android updates for these budget-friendly devices.

So, a noteworthy move by Motorola is the launch of the moto g34 5G, a budget phone that comes equipped with Android 14 right out of the box, positioning itself as one of the early adopters of the latest Android version in the budget phone segment.
