DROID Turbo 2 Soak Test…Possibly 6.0? Plus, a Star Wars Edition!

Earlier today Motorola sent out invites to DROID Turbo 2 owners to test an early preview of a new software release. Many are speculating that this could either be a WiFi calling update or a preview of Marshmallow. Both of these options make a lot of sense. Earlier this week Verizon introduced WiFi calling to the S6 and S6 Edge via a software update, so it is certainly possible that is their goal here for the Turbo 2 as well. On the other hand, the Moto X Pure Edition just started receiving Marshmallow this week on Sprint, Verizon, US Cellular, and AT&T.

Given that the DROID Turbo 2 is a Verizon-exclusive collaboration with Motorola, it would make sense that they would prioritize getting the Marshmallow update done quickly. Unfortunately, the original DROID Turbo had a horribly long wait to get Lollipop over the past year. This story is still breaking via Droid Life, so we’ll let you know if any further details come in on Marshmallow for the Turbo 2.

In other Turbo 2 news, Verizon and Motorola have added Star Wars themed options to Moto Maker for those interesting in purchasing the phone. There will also be a set of exclusive Star Wars wallpapers available to Turbo 2 owners. Verizon says the wallpapers will be available in an exclusive app. It is unclear at this time whether the special wallpapers will be available to all current owners of the Turbo 2 as well, I’m hoping on the latter since I recently picked up one of these phones. Of course, it is unlikely that wallpapers will stay exclusive for long. I still have some “exclusive” Montblanc wallpapers and screen unlock effects from expensive Note 4 cases I never bought. Check out the gallery below for the rundown of the available Moto Maker options and wallpapers.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
