Moto E 2nd Gen and Moto X 2nd Gen carrier versions to not get Marshmallow update

Motorola just dropped the list of devices that will be getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. It included phones such as the Moto X 2nd and 3rd gen, Moto G 2nd and 3rd gen, Droid Turbo/Moto MAXX/Moto Turbo, and unsurprisingly the Nexus 6.

But if you looked closely you’d notice that the Moto E 2nd Gen, launched a mere eight months ago, is not part of the list. Somehow, a device so new, and launched on the promise of keeping the phone up to date, won’t be getting a major update released within a year of its launch.

But that’s not all. The carrier versions of the Moto X 2nd Gen will also not be getting the update. This includes the AT&T and the Verizon models, that too weren’t released a long time ago. Not to mention the carrier unlocked version of the same phone getting the update.

Motorola sure has some explaining to do.
