Motorola Droid Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD and Razr M get KitKat

Written by Nick Farrell

These are still the droids you are looking for

Motorola Mobility’s Senior Director of Software Product Management David Schuster has leaked that the Motorola Droid Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD and Razr M will get KitKat in a couple of weeks. Writing in his Google+ blog he said that a number of people have been asking him about that status of the KitKat upgrade for the 2012 DROID family and he said that the outfit had made “great progress.”

“It should only be a few more weeks until you guys can enjoy it. So stay tuned,” he wrote.

Users should expect an array of performance improvements and bug fixes, as well as few new/updated apps. It is not clear if they will get any of the Moto X goodies like that “always listen” mode, but I guess we will just have to wait and see. All three Droids ran Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch in 2012, so it’s nice to see they'll be receiving KitKat even though they are getting on a bit. Those who picked one up around that time would have roughly 5-6 months left on a two-year agreement. It might mean that people will hang onto the phones a bit longer.

Droid Razr M can still be purchased, at least online, but the other two have been replaced by the newer Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx.
