    Got a Moto soak test invite already on M, could this be N? If so looks like Lenovo is trying to change the perception (or fact actually) that Droid's don't get timely updates. Anybody else get one?

    N is just a beta right now.

    Right, and will be released fully sometime in the summer rumour has it. Hence they soak a final version to test it before release a month or 2 in advance. They don't do soak tests for versions of a already released OS so I guess it has to be N.

    They've done soak tests for security updates.

    I hear the hope in your post, but with Verizon.....I have a really hard time believing this is anything close to Android N. With big red we'll continue to wait a good 6-9 months after the official release until it comes to our phones (I think).

    N doesn't even have a name yet.

    A soak test for N is premature at this point. Security update and bug fixes more likely. I would not mind them fixing M before pushing a beta version of N out.

    An N soak test would be an interesting change from how everything I know about Verizon, Moto, and Android work

    OP, careful what you post in the forums. Moto doesn't like it when people they've sent soak invites out to blab about it, so if they catch you they may ban you from being a part of soaks indefinitely or permanently.

    That said, if there's a soak coming out soon I think it's way too early for it to be Android N. How can Moto/Lenovo have a build of N ready if it hasn't been released yet? I'll bet that it's either security or bug fixes, or maybe even WiFi calling, which would be awesome.

    A very outside and unlikely possibility is that Moto/Lenovo/Verizon are releasing a non-Nexus N beta program, like what Sony's doing with the Xperia Z3, but I highly doubt it.

    Yeah I'm aware. Honestly not blabbing just curious. Could care less about Lenovo anymore anyway. This will be my last of their phones, even though I like it. Abandon the shatter proof screen, abandon wireless charging (natively anyway). Those two features are what make this phone great, and the huge battery.

    They haven't abandoned the shatter-proof screen; it's in the Moto Z Force Droid Edition. The regular Moto Z will be, like the Maxx 2, a standard, glass covered AMOLED display, IIRC.
