Samsung has officially unveiled its next generation of chips at their Device Solutions America Headquarters and they are based on both 14nm, as well as 10nm processes. Now we know where all that investment into their semiconductor business went to. Additionally, they also unveiled their new generation of 7nm Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography (EUV) wafer that will allow for precise patterning on chips, without needing to opt for more than just a single pattern.
The 14LPU process will improve over the current gen 14nm chips by providing them with a boost in performance without exceeding the allotted power quota. Processors enabled by these new 14nm chips will be able to provide high performance for long stretches at a time. The 10LPU process on the other hand, will make the next gen chips smaller than its predecessors; the 10LPE and 10LLP chips. The boost in performance is not highlighted as significant, but they will be cheaper to manufacture and will provide better power efficiency when used inside the new processors. Will the new tech be introduced with the Snapdragon 830 (rumored to be produced by Samsung)? Or will we see them exclusively in the new generation of the Exynos processors? We will find out soon.

Android 5.0 Lollipop Update is now seeding to Moto X (2014) for Verizon Wireless. The update arrives only a couple of days after soak test invites got out to Motorola Feedback Network participants.
The latest Android build for the Moto X is in stock guise, so it offers the same user interface experience as the Nexus 6. The biggest highlights of Android 5.0 include sleek Material Design and brand new ART runtime. The latter makes devices feel a lot more responsive regardless of the task they perform.
Motorola has just released a new OTA update to the old first generation Moto G (Model XT1032). The update weights about 21MB only and packs Android 4.4.4 KitKat build with some minor bug fixes. Go check your Moto G for updates.
Motorola is expected to release Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its latest flagships by the End of this year.
The Lollipop Updates continues, this time its Motorola which has just updated its 1st and 2nd Generation of the Moto G models to the latest Android 5.0.1 update.
Few people have received the update so far but it does seem to be rolling out now and if it's not available for you immediately it should be in the next few things. The 5.0.1 update was released recently and mostly features bug fixes without any major additions. Still, it's good to see this budget phone being one of the few devices out there running the very latest version of Android.
