Google Nexus Android Marshmallow update
Google has revealed that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will delivered OTA to the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, and Nexus Player on the week.
Samsung Android Marshmallow update
Samsung has not yet commented on its update schedule, but that hasn’t stopped some websites from claiming they have an ‘official’ list of Samsung devices due to be updated to Android Marshmallow by the end of the year. YouMobile recently added the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ to its list, and while we don’t put much stock in the information, most of the devices listed are pretty safe bets.
Check out the list below:
Galaxy S6 Edge
Galaxy Note 5
Galaxy S6 Edge+
Galaxy S6 Duos
Galaxy Note 4
Galaxy Note 4 Duos
Galaxy Note Edge
Galaxy Tab A
The Samsung flagships released this year will almost certainly get Android Marshmallow, either before the end of the year or in early 2016. We’ve reached out for more details on the Android Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy devices and will fill you in on anything we hear.
HTC Android Marshmallow update
HTC has already announced that the HTC One models M9 and M9+ will get the Android Marshmallow update. It isn’t clear yet when other devices, such as the HTC One (M8), will get it too. Stay tuned for more on the HTC Android Marshmallow update schedule.
LG Android Marshmallow update
Although there is no official word on the LG Android Marshmallow update, the LG G4 and the LG G3 will certainly receive Android Marshmallow. We’ve sent LG a request for comment regarding its update plans. We will give you details when we get a response.
Sony Android Marshmallow update
On a side note, a Greek website uncovered a comment on LG’s Greek Facebook page stating there are no plans for Android 5.1 for the G3, which possibly indicates that the device will jump straight to Android Marshmallow instead.
Motorola Android Marshmallow update
Motorola’s smartphones usually get updates quickly, so the Moto X (Pure Edition), Moto X Play and Moto X (2014) should be some of the first smartphones getting the Motorola Android Marshmallow update. But models such as the Moto G (2015), Moto G (2014) and the new Moto E are also likely to get it relatively quickly.
Huawei Android Marshmallow update
Huawei might see Android Marshmallow as something sinister – that’s because it must first roll out Android Lollipop to its latest smartphones.
